I've been holding out so long

I've been sleeping all alone

So What Year Was It?


The commercial has stirred a lot of comments wherever this advert or news about it have been posted. Numerous people argued that why would the McCann New York ad agency use a song which was released in 1978 for an ad based on the year 1972? Still, there are others who say that the year in which the song was released is really irrelevant since the song is so great and hot anyway. There are also some who argue about the ad agency not using the original Jose Cuervo bottle. The bottle used in the ad was not the original one from 1972 since the one used had not even been created as of that year. It is evident that some people really take some commercials too literally.

No matter what side of that argument people were on, mostly all agree on one thing; the beautiful flight attendant on the commercial. Kistunes found a lot of people asking who this sexy and gorgeous woman used in the ad was. Many wanted to know her name to find out more about her. To prove just how many people have searched for her name, you can go on Google and as you type Jose Cuervo Flight, the "jose cuervo flight attendant" search term automatically comes out. Unfortunately, we could not find out what her name was (sorry everyone).


Regardless of what your take or opinion might be on the commercial, the song or on the decade, one has to admit about how cool the ad really is. The song takes people back to an era which started it all. For people who did not live during those years, it may be easy for them to dismiss it as the past. However, to those that were lucky enough to live during those decades, they can simply say "Those were the days".
