Jim Field-Smith’s favourite ad of all time is the Old Milwaukee one starring Will Ferrell. Watch it here, then come back. Make sure you do come back though. 

Welcome back. It’s pretty good, that Old Milwaukee ad with Will Ferrell. 

It makes sense, really. Jim really is an expert in amusing ads. Actually, amusing films and TV in general? Like the series he directed, entitled The Wrong Mans, starring James Corden and Mathew Baynton. Or Truth Seekers, which he made with Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. 

Comedy not your thing? All good, because he also made the series Criminal, which isn’t funny at all. Not to mention he’s working on something even more serious: Litvinenko, a four-episode drama about the Scotland Yard Officers who solved the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko. 

The thing is, Jim knows how to make things people want to watch. Then talk about. Then watch again. Like the commercials he’s made for Galaxy, Gerber, The Grammys, Cow & Gate and Heinz. 

 He’s a good guy to have a beer with as well. Maybe an Old Milwaukee if you’ve got one.
