Welcome back from Super Bowl weekend! Much like the rest of America, we spent the weekend with our friends, watching the big game and partaking in all the excellent food. And, of course watching all the amusing commercials that play during the Super Bowl is a pivotal part of the experience. Whether you were rooting for Carolina or Denver, chances are you were with friends. It’s also safe to say that you probably partook in an alcoholic beverage or two, maybe even more if you were rooting for the losing team. If you were watching closely, you probably noticed a particular commercial that stood out, one that warned of the dangers of drinking and driving. Today, DUI lawyer Mark Weingart is blogging from his Tempe, AZ office to speak more about this particular commercial, as well as the consequences of not heeding its warnings.
The commercial we are talking about was sponsored by Budweiser and featured Academy Award winning actress, Dame Helen Mirren.
