Budweiser Commercial Reverses the Roles in the Strauss-Kahn Case

May 23, 2011 at 9:17 AM | by | ()

By now you're already totally aware of the shake-ups at the International Monetary Fund, as the former chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn resigned after being indicted in New York for sexually assaulting a housekeeper in his tony $3,000-per-night suite at the Sofitel. The story gets creepier as more of Strauss-Kahn's history is unveiled, but let's put all that aside for the moment.

In early 2010, Budweiser released a commercial that depicts a humorous version of events, if the roles were reversed. We're not making light of the Strauss-Khan accusations, just pointing out this ad, which flips the players and makes the maid into the provocateur, with the guest as the innocent.

Currently Strauss-Kahn is under house arrest in a multi-million dollar building in Lower Manhattan. He's far away, both literally and figuratively, from minibars and turndown service. Let's hope it stays that way.
