TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — New ads for Old Milwaukee beer that feature actor Will Ferrell are appearing on television in Terre Haute three months after they were filmed there.
Pabst Brewing Co. chief marketing officer Bryan Crowley tells the Tribune-Star (http://bit.ly/rsM4EZ ) that Ferrell approached the company about making the ads because he is a big fan of the beer.
The former "Saturday Night Live" comic and a film crew were in Terre Haute in September and stopped at several locations around the city.
Crowley says Ferrell was not paid for the ad.
Ferrell filmed a similar ad for Old Milwaukee in Davenport, Iowa, in September.
