I spent most of my free time (that time during the episode not spent wondering if Peggy actually hates herself on the inside or not) wondering what an Old Spanish was.
I’m continually looking for ways to sound douchier while ordering a drink at the bar and I thought, well shit, I’m going to order an Old Spanish next time I go out just because no one else probably knows what it is, it’s from the 60s.
Sadly, this morning The AV Club alerted me to the fact that an Old Spanish doesn’t even exist. It’s actually a fictional drink created on (now former NBC show) 30 Rock.
The Fictional Cocktail’s ingredient list includes:
- Red Wine
- Tonic Water
Real or fiction, I’m going to be a douche and order this drink. I’ll come back with results on the bartenders knowledge of such drink and ofcourse, if he/she can make a great tasting Ol’ Spanish.
If worst comes to worst, I’ll just make one myself.
Since I’m currently in Studio Production, I cringe when I watch this. This dude wasn’t paying attention to his co-host or floor manager at all. Not only did he curse on air but he was horrible at being an anchor period. He deserved to get fired over this. First day on the job and he screws up royally on the first try.
He just blacklisted himself.
Gets industry criticism from those not even in the industry yet. #Fuck
