Spilly Pants is a pervert

My favourite beer is Alexander Keith's. I like the taste and the fact that it is from Nova Scotia (where I'm originally from).

A couple years ago, the ads promoting it featured a loud abrasive but funny Scotsman ...

Portrayed by Robert Smith.

Then Robert Smith was arrested for "possessing and disseminating" child pornography.

He was then fired and hasn't been able to find a job since (duh!).

He was sentenced yesterday to just 21 months in jail.

He will probably only serve between one and two thirds of that sentence which I think is very very sad. He should be put away for much much longer and have to serve his entire sentence.

You can read the Toronto Star article about it here.

Here are the ads:

I was surprised when I read in the newspaper this morning at how short his sentence was. He was funny in those commercials.

Nice pictures to help tell the story. Much better reporting than what CityTV does. ;)

People like that should be locked up, but they should also be given help. It's not as if when gets out he'll suddenly be 'cured.' It's an illness.

Yes heard all about that, takes all kinds. Pretty sure he won't serve his whole sentence.

Did partake in a few of Alexander's brew when I went to The Mount. Never made it to the brewery tour, heard it was a blast.

The brewery tour was a lot of fun! Gord and I did it a couple years ago.

I loved those ads. It's strange how you can never tell about people eh!
