Three things every American knows about Australia: drop bears kill people, Crocodile Dundee's the best, and Foster's: Australian for beer. Except that last one isn't true, since, well, it's brewed in Texas.
New York local Leif Nelson, not to be confused with famous viking Leif Erikson, is suing Miller Brewing Co. after finding out that Foster's is currently being brewed in the Lone Star State and not Down Under. If you're bad at nicknames, that's in Texas, and not Australia. The company started brewing beer in Fort Worth, TX back in 2011, because it's way cheaper. But, to Nelson, this means the company is falsely advertising by using that voiceover guy with the Australian accent and catchy slogans like, "Australian for beer."
New York Daily News reports that Nelson will continue drinking Foster's "if the oversized beer can is accurately labeled in the future." So, obviously, the guy likes the beer, just not the way it's being advertised. Because, naturally, beer commercials should only present 100% true facts. And by that logic, every time you open a cold one, you should have a party train break through your wall, you'll transform into the most interesting person ever, and you buddies will always be down to hang after a prolonged "Wazzzuuuuuuuuup."
Or, maybe, just maybe, well, they're just commercials.
