The crate — which looks pretty expensive — is to promote the Peacock Mel Gibson John Wick miniseries coming this weekend called “The Continental.”
So far, reviews are pretty bad, with only a 47% of 37 critics liking it. (I’ll try and watch it when it hits Peacock.) Indiewire wrote: “The Continental” soon crumbles under its impossible burdens. The action is plentiful, yet can’t compare, the storytelling is careless, beyond repair, and the realization of vaunted myths, well, buyer beware.”
The fact that Mel Gibson, antisemite and racist, is in it should be enough to turn elsewhere for entertainment. They say it’s a limited series, and that’s apparently true.
But Peacock must have felt they would get some PR from the recipients of the bourbon, whiskey, bitters, and a glass decanter. And here it is.
