Media Watch: Appleton Estate’s “From Jamaica With Love” Commercial

Words by Jesse Serwer

Appleton-from-jamaica-with-love

We’ve been saying this for years: rum is in need of a makeover. Vodka, tequila, Scotch, Bourbon and even gin have all become fashionable among young people in recent years, thanks in large part to good, or at least savvy, marketing. Rum has stubbornly refused to follow along, with brands content to either die out with their aging customers, or to rely on the same old parrots and pirates.

Patrick “Curly Lox” and Paul “Tu-Lox” Gaynor aka Twin of Twins have been stirring things up in Jamaica with their comedy and social commentary for a decade now. A few years ago we caught wind of a feature-length film starring the brothers, or at least their voices transposed over old kung-fu footage. Now, that film is finally ready to be seen. Ching Pow: Far East Yardies will screen every night for the next month, from today through September 7th, at The Theatre Place, 8 Haining Road in Kingston.

Mek Mi Know: Get Familiar with Ryme Minista

Mavado-and-Ryme-Minista

Among the names already announced for this year’s Reggae Sumfest, Ryme Minista might be the least familiar, especially to those from outside Jamaica. On the island, however, the deejay’s name is quickly gaining currency, starting in his home turf of Montego Bay, where he’s shored up a loyal local base not unlike his associate Tommy Lee Sparta a few years back.
