* A commercial for whiskey tells the story of a man, Advertising/JohnJameson, who dived into the ocean to rescue one of his kegs and presumably died. The next scene shows his funeral with the narrator telling us "All of [[{{Oireland}} Ireland]] was in attendance, including... John Jameson." Jameson is then seen walking up the beach front holding the keg. An extended version of the commercial shows him being grabbed by a Giant Octopus while swimming for the keg, presumably putting him into {{Badass}} territory.
