Fundays@420: Orson Welles Wines

Hey gang! Welcome to another happy-slappy Funday@420! Are any of you kids old enough to remember the old phrase "We will sell NO wine before it's TIME"? Know anything about it? Ok... fun is fun, but if you're careful, you may just learn something before it's done (Hey, Hey, Hey!).

Back in late 70's, Orson Welles (Citizen Kane, War of the Worlds, The Muppet Movie - wah?... I like the Muppet Movie) did some commercial endorsements for the Paul Masson Wine Company. A dude named Victor Lewis-Smith, a critic of Masson Wines, stated that Welles endorsements were  both proof he was 'a genius, but also a lying bastard". The following outtake is real footage of the commercial with Orson Welles bombed to the gills.

Funday@420 Double HIT!!
Just like George Lucas and his remixing of the original Star Wars franchise, such is the fate of this story - checkout this NEW footage!

Funday@420 Triple HIT!!!
And just for pees and poops, Orson Welles as parodied in The Critic starring Jon Lovitz:

Happy Funday Everybody!!!
