The large Miller High Life delivery man is one of my favourite characters of all time on commercials.

I love how he shows those ostrich-burger eating yuppy geeks what the "good-life" is all about by getting some real good ole beef burgers to cook.

I also love the commercial where he shows up to the luxury box at a baseball game and asks the inhabitants if they know who's winning the game. Then he pounds on the windows to make some noise and get into the fan spirit.

I've been in some of those luxury boxes before and the Miller guy is right! Those corporate twits have no clue about the game they're attending. They don't deserve The High Life!

I love how he tells them they lost the right to enjoy the High Life. Then he takes the beer down to the real fans, the paying fans in the crowd!

Thanks Miller! Those are great ads!

Haven't seen the second one, but I love it.

I went to an Arizona Cardinals game recently, and most there seemed more concerned with getting drunk than watching the game. We were by the aisle, so they blocked our view on almost every play, hundreds of people streaming by constantly. Even when they were on the goaline, people were constantly going by, coming back with beer. Ugh, when did people stop caring about the game they're attending?

That actor, whoever he is, seems like a natural-born comedian.

I went to a Cardinals game at Sun Devil Stadium a few years ago, and I noticed the same.  Of course it was about 100° out---which, in and of itself, makes it NOT seem much like a football game to begin with, so...

I was at a Brewers' game this summer at Miller Park & that guy was there, in his Miller shirt.  Everyone was taking pics of him & stuff--pretty funny.......

I always like the expressions of the male and female execs. They're stereotyped but somehow without the joke being overdone.

I watch a network (ESPN Classic) where those two ads are shown constantly, and after months and months it really wears thin. I still wish they'd make some more good ones with that actor.
