    This Dewar’s ad has made the website pretty useless, guess I’ll come back tomorrow.

  • Concerned Fan

    Hey, this Dewars ad is complete crap. Dewar’s sucks. This ad sucks. Come on CM.com, you’re cooler than this. I WANTED to read about materials that were cool, but like Dude said, this ad makes the website pretty f*cking useless. Fix it or lose a fan/customer forever.
