Booze Matters - Brand Awareness


I see that Nanny, in the shape of Alcohol Concern,is getting her knickers in a twist over the "fact" that kids are apparently very familiar with the brand names of booze.

Such is Nanny's concern over this that she wants more restrictions placed on booze adverts and sponsorships etc.

Now when I was a nipper, the TV was choc a bloc with adverts for booze. I was very familiar with names such as:

-Red Barrel
-Worthington E
-Long Life
-Carling etc etc

Yet this familiarity didn't turn me into a raging alcoholic (then or now).

Rather gemusingly Nanny adds weight to her "argument" by citing that "fact" that kids are more familiar with booze brands than brands of crisps, biscuits and sweets.

Ermm....I thought Nanny didn't approve of those either?

As ever Nanny's concerns are bollocks, kids are drinking less now than they ever did!

    I was saying the exact same thing to my partner this morning. I remember being intrigued by the names VAT69 and Tio Pepe but did I have a raging desire to neck the stuff? Of course not - in fact I don't drink them now I am an adult. ( also recall finding the cloaked silhouette with the big hat on the Sandeman Port packaging rather sinister)
