Seven forgotten drinks ads starring Hollywood A-listers

(1994) Harrison Ford – Kirin Lager Beer

During the 1990s Harrison Ford lent his image of the Japanese beer producer Kirin, promoting its Kirin Lager beer in a series of adverts aired in the country. Kirin Lager Beer is one of the most popular beer brands in Japan, as well as the oldest, having started brewing in 1888. We aren’t sure what is being said in this advert, and we aren’t sure Harrison Ford knows either. It’s a long way from the Death Star, but an entertaining interlude in his career nonetheless.
