    My personal opinion is that alcoholic beverages should not be advertised during sporting events, concerts and any other event that draws young people same goes for tobacco.

    The advertising industry is fucking crooked anyway... not just with alcohol and shit like that. All they care about is money, not people, and that's the way it has always been and always will be.

    But at what point does personal responsibility come into play? Why can't parents take matters into their own hands and explain to their child that it's not good to drink until you're old enough to make that decision. I understand what ya'll are saying, I just don't think the problem is with the advertisements, I think the issue is with parents who are to lazy to do their job and teach their kids right from wrong. But maybe it's just me.

    ummm actually, i dont think that the fault lies in advertisements. even without them, do you think people would drink less? heck they dont advertise drugs, but people still smoke pot and shit. so yeah i dont see the harm, it is wrong, agreed, but then again, it aint the cause behind kids going for it.

    people advertise to play with money, like an easy route to money, which is wrong.

    i cant think of any pros to it.... confused

    I agree with the earlier points, especially with the advertising industry being as crooked as ever. I mean, if they do cut down on beer ads during sporting events and such, chances are the risks of underage drinking are gonna decrease. I'm sure this can be refuted, but keep in mind that the media literally has the power to affect our thinking and habits.

    Honestly, kids drink because other kids do. Although, I guess seeing it on TV makes it cool. Not just in the advertising community. Even on TV shows people drinking having a good time makes it seem cool. So even if you cut out advertising, kids would still see it and think it's cool.

    Though, I do agree with lessining the amount that those commercials are played. But at the same time, those companys sponser sports and things like that, so it's impossible to say no.

    i still dont think the main reason behind kids drinking is advertisements...i mean honestly i think like dope said, its coz other friends do. drinking might influence elder people though. but for youngsters, i really dont think they even have time to pay attention to advertisements.

    In Norway it ain't allowed to advertise for alcohol, cigarettes or political views.
    Thinking about that some advertisings have increased the sale of various products with 200% I guess it's OK that that kind of advertising ain't allowed.

    I think that the age restriction causes kids to drink.

    I think that the advertisements have no effect on selling alcohol. Cuz we all now what alcohol can do and why it's used, so the people that are using it didn't see it on the advertisements.
    My opinion

    As much as I dislike most alcohol companies, I think they have the right to advertise just like everyone else, Yes children will see it, and if you have taught your children that alcohol is evil they will go off and get drunk all the time. The issue is not with the ads, the issue is that by treating underage drinking with such stigma of course kids will want to drink. If you dont care if your kid has a drink now and then and occasionally after the age of 10 or so give them a beer, it will loose its magic and they wont go out and get hammered.

    I find no problem with advertising of Alchohol. I'm a teenager, and I've yet to drink. When I see a commercial showing some kind of Alchohol I never think to myself "Damn...that looks like a tasty beverage." I more am just bored because there is a commercial on rather than my program.
    So I really don't see any harm, I'm sure other kids are much more effective at getting people to drink than ads, as Dopesmoker and a few others said.

    Well, really, alcohol is THE social lubricant after all, so of course it gets used in gatherings of people, just to help relax. In my opinion advertisements can only influence what brand are you going to buy, not IF you are going to buy, well that is true at least in my case.

    By the way, in my neck of the woods it is illegal to advertise booze on TV until after 22.00, BUT it is illegal to sell alcohol in stores after 22.00. Really, it's quite damn stupid and frustrating, like I was chilling by the river with a few friends just a week ago, we ran out of brandy so we thought to pick up another bottle, so we went to the store. It was something like 21.55 but they still would not sell us anything... Quite paradoxical on the whole I believe.

    And to finish up, there is nothing quite like a good glass of wine to complement a nice meal, and I simply can't imagine buying wine because of a commercial and not by taste.

    The only problem with alchohol advertising is the same problem that is wrong with all advertising. It doesn't just advertise a product which has qualities you can talk about, but rather, they present this bogus lifestyle surrounding the use of their product that you are supposed to believe in. So the whole concept of the product becomes superfluous, and they don't have to bother with such things as quality since the real end goal they are encouraging you to chase is some fairy tale life you achieve by throwing away money.

    Anyway, alchohol hardly seems to need advertising it's so deeply ingrained in human culture, but then again when you are selling the brand, and the merrit of the product itself you do have to go to crazy extremes to get the message out, or else people would only focuss on buying booze that's good as opposed to Baily's regurgitated diarhrea!
