Last week, the Dutch brewing company Bavaria launched an ad campaign suggesting that the company's Radler — a fruity beer-based beverage — is popular among "dead" celebrities such as Tupac Shakur, Bruce Lee, and of course, Elvis Presley. The video, set on an uncharted desert island, looked a little something like this. First, old (possibly intoxicated) Elvis leers inappropriately at the scantily clad help.

Old Marilyn Monroe rubs suntan lotion on Tupac's belly, while John Lennon and Kurt Cobain order more fruity beer-based beverages.

The ever-vigilant Bruce Lee spots a ship off the coast and sounds an alarm, reminding the celebrities that they are supposed to be dead and need to hide. It turns out Elvis isn't very good at hiding.
