If Historical Figures Did Television Commercials 12
Posted May 2, 2013 at 8:54 am

It all started as the old Lowenbrau jingle suddenly turning up in my brain. This led to me looking up some classic commercials from the 70s and 80s on YouTube. Then, I was like, I should be able to make a good IHFDTVC out of this.

Researching the Lowenbrau company, I found out they've been around for centuries, they have an old brewery and pub in Munich, and they are indeed still making beer (just not in the USA anymore). Knowing that Munich was a major cultural hub in Germany, I looked up what famous names were associated with the city... and one of them was Richard Wagner.

Finally, I decided to tie it all in with Cassie's wedding (That one small part of "Lohengrin"? You might know it better as "Here Comes The Bride") and actually include Cassie and Philip in this one, meeting Wagner at the premiere of his "Tristan & Isolde" opera in 1865.
