The first series of Peroni Beer was a disaster; nothing went right, but it was interesting
to watch. At least for the weighty directorial participation of Francesco Maselli, who was usually involved in 'Caroselli'
that were more suggestive and new-wave. And then there was the cast. Solvi Stubing, the future star of Peroni Beer,
next to Mario Girotti who was not yet Terence Hill, the hero of the western all'Italiana.
The spot was pretty similar to those with Fabio Testi for Coca-Cola, which
has young fool, with music playing (this was a novelty) composed by Gianni Boncompagni that was pretty wild for the times.
In one episode, Girotti follows the girl, the blond who plays the beer-girl, into a castle.
Lots of silly scenes until the end, when she turns and says the famous line:
Call me Peroni; I'll be your beer. And a star was born.
