I can't believe that there are people out there who think.....QVC would actually go through the trouble to put "juice" in a real wine bottle.  Laughs for sure

There was once upon a time a movement to eliminate smoking and drinking from advertisements in magazines and on tv because those things were addictive and harmful to children and others.  

 

To see these images it made the product more glamorous and attractive, the point of the ad being to get people to want to smoke or drink.

 

I think people now don't consider drinking to be harmful as we did then.  Now it is an accepted part of life.  As is to a degree smoking and vaping.  Unless it kills someone you love.

Re: Hosts Drinking Alcohol

[ Edited ]

Many, many more adults in the United States partake of alcohol than smoke/vape.

 

An estimated 11% of the adult population regularly smokes/vapes.   That's quite a decline from the peak 52%+ during the 1940s.

 

As for alcohol, various polls indicate that about 63% of the adult population regularly or occasionally consumes alcohol.   Some polls put that over 70%.

 

 

(And who emptied the empty wine bottle?

 

The hosts!)

 

 

Drink! Drink! Drink!


To eyes that are bright as stars
When they're shining on me!


Drink! Drink! Drink!


To lips that are red and sweet
As the fruit on the tree!

@Barks2005 Do you seriously think they are drinking real wine?  Even if there was wine in their glasses I doublt if they actually really drink it.

@Commoner Exec Mr Wilkes I have never seen the actual Wine Bottle, I have only seen the hosts drinking/holding a Wine Glass.

Are you kidding?

 

I worked in one of the biggest  corporate law firms after the travel industry for 6 years in Miami.

 

We had 3 floors in a high rise tower in downtown Miami.  They drank martini's everyday at lunch.  Not all of them of course, but many.  Now this was in the early 80's.

 

As for us paralegal's and assistants we did the same thing.

 

I know it's not allowed now but many work from home.  hmm......

wonder if a little ****** is going on daytime to take the edge off.Woman LOL

 

PS.  my first husbands father was a judge and he sure liked his bourbon too.  Of course not on the job for him.
