Belgian beer company Stella Artois is so convinced that they're the best beer in the world that pop culture icons will give up their signature drinks for one. Their new Super Bowl ad revolves around this theme with Jeff Bridges reprising his role as The Big Lebowski's The Dude, alongside a very busty Sarah Jessica Parker playing Carrie Bradshaw.
You see, the joke is that everyone is shocked when Carrie turns down a Cosmo for a Stella, but then The Dude turns down his signature White Russian for a Stella and no one blinks. It doesn't make even a lick of sense and is so rotten to its core that I can't believe Bridges or Parker would agree to be in this. Then again, if they drove a literal dump truck full of money up to your house, you wouldn't say no either.
Personally, I don't need a Lebowski sequel, no matter what Tara Reid thinks. A grey-haired Jeff Lebowski would only be a let-down, no offense to Bridges, but an aimless man in his sixties is no longer charming. I guess John Turturro's still working on that sequel focused on his bit character The Jesus, but honestly, I don't need any more Lebowski spin-offs or sequels in my life.
The Big Lebowski is a perfect film, let's just let it stay that way.
