O kay, so it’s not the most socially responsible song on the planet, but no one was listening to Foreigner for political correctness. Coors managed to sink even lower (once again) by using this is in a Coors Light ad featuring (what else?) a pair of female twins. It’s ironic that the lyrics to “Double Vision” would seem to encourage intoxication (and by “ironic” I mean “irresponsibly evil”). I’m always surprised that cigarette makers get hammered for their marketing tactics when companies like Coors are just as questionable. Cigarette companies put more tar in their cigarettes so people smoke more cigarettes, and we’re outraged. Coors makes a “light” beer so that people will drink more of them (it has to do with perception) and Pete Coors can talk about drinking responsibly. So remember, folks, smoke responsibly.
