  • This is how you fight an invasion using a giant chicken, a fish and tons of Coca Cola Zero.
  • He can speak French... in Russian. If he were to pat you on the back, you would put it on your resumé. If he were to punch you in the face, you would have to fight off the strong urge to thank him. Even his enemies list him as their emergency contact. He is... The Most Interesting Man in the World.
  • The Toyota NZ Hilux ad, where the protagonist was driving on his Hilux, offroad, over this mountain, through a valley, in the middle of a cyclone, which caused a flood, which triggered a landslide, before he finally got to this volcano...

And in the end, the pursuit of the whiskey would prove foolish... for the Hawk of Achill.
