Carlton MID Men A Little Bit Longer

Carlton MID, the beer for men who want to stay a bit longer, has been given a refreshing treatment with a couple of television commercials recently released in Australia. “The Man Who Could Speak Woman” and “The Woman Whisperer” demonstrate the specialist skills of men who have the capacity to emotionally connect with women and convince them that their male partners need more time with their drinking mates. “Because when it comes to getting away with the boys, you’re gonna need some help”.

The Man Who Could Speak Woman

Looking for a break from home duties to spend time with the boys? And you need your wife to understand that? You need someone who speaks Woman to tell her you need time out with some special friends to invigorate your soul. Take note – speaking Woman is as much about body language as about vocabulary.

The Carlton mid strength beer has been marketed over the years with a range of television ads in which men retreat from the responsibilities of everyday life to their sheds to join with their drinking friends. It’s the beer for intelligent men, who can drink alcohol and yet retain the intelligence to design Bloke Bots. And now we have a new breed of beer drinking heroes with extraordinary powers – the man who can speak Woman on behalf of his mates, and the Woman Whisperer.
