An Oktoberfest celebration in September?!

That's right. And if you've been keeping up with the news, you should know by now that, early this month, San Miguel Beer kicked off the Oktoberfest celebration with what they promised to be the biggest, grandest, and longest-running fiesta in the country to date.


Calling it Oktoberfest 120 - since San Miguel wants the celebration last more than just a month because, yes, we Filipinos love our beer that much - San Miguel started the celebration with a bang by having a 600-meter bar area to get more than 13,500 people to raise their glasses (or bottles) and toast at the same time, all for the sake of beating 2 Guinness World Records in one go.


And to cap that off, they had Third Eye Blind come over to perform - but only for the VIP guests and for those who paid for the premium PHP 1,500 tickets, making pitiful fools out of the thousands who thought they'd get to watch the band for the price of a PHP 120 ticket. Yes, that's how misleading their ad blurbs were.


Many thanks to my friend, Pinoy pop culture blogger meister, Azrael, for the Oktoberfest photos.

Anyway, in honor of the said beer drinking celebration - because after all, for this Typical Guy, nothing else goes better with a cold bottle of beer than hot and sexy women - why don't we look back at some of the most memorable San Miguel Beer TV commercials ever that featured the finest women our country has to offer...

...women like Rachel Lobangco who, while not my type, was the quintessential Filipina woman, albeit with the guts to show more skin than most, or...




...women like Cindy Kurleto and Cristina Garcia in one commercial, now who could go wrong with that, or...



...women like Ina Raymundo who was the physical embodiment of what every typical guy like myself was after every Saturday night - a pretty and sexy (pretty sexy?) babe we'd ply with lots and lots of booze 'til she'd get drunk enough to hop into bed (or the back seat of a car) with us and get laid without hesitation. Ahhh, those were the days...
