Watch Andy Daly combine thousands of real opinions from Laphroaig consumers

During the three-and-a-half-hour long “speech” – shot in a single take – Andy Daly, of American comedy series Review, combines thousands of real opinions from consumers shared as part of Laphroaig’s #OpinionsWelcome campaign.

Over the last three years, the brand has asked the public to state their opinion on the Scotch whisky brand, complimentary or otherwise – and now it is “time for their voices to be heard”.

Watch below as Daly debates whether Laphroaig tastes more like “a bowl of vanilla ice cream from inside a forest fire” or “a moldy rock you licked from the fireplace” – and see if you can pick out various nods to (in)famous moments in American filibuster history, from Huey Long to Wendy Davis.
