Toonfomercial: Well, what did you expect a viking to endorse? (1989)

Dik Browne's Hagar the Horrible became the first cartoon character since the Flintstones in the 60's to endorse beer. It happened in 1989 when a British ad agency was granted license to use Hagar and his sidekick, Lucky Eddie, to promote Skol, a lager beer. The ads were dubbed over here in the US for another brand.

Well, what did you expect?
