Q Mixers Can Fix Your Cocktails. But Not Your Crackpot Family

And it's pretty useless during an AI apocalypse (probably)

Alas, Q Mixers can't do a damn thing about your tech-bro cousin who wears VR goggles at the holiday dinner table and carries on like a Silicon Valley cliché.

But Q can help you fix cocktails. Isn't that enough?

The brand explains its position in fresh ads from Cornett.

Q Mixers | Tech-Bro Cousin

Commercials are full of exasperating cousins these days. But your auntie, uncle and granny seem ... nice?

Though Q can't "fix" the festivities per se, imbibing might make sharing holiday meals with those goofballs more palatable. (Fill ours to the brim!)

Titled "Q It Up," the work "showcases our ethos—we take good drinks and moments that matter seriously, but never ourselves," says brand marketing director Jocelyn Hurley. "Also, it helps crystallize the benefit of Q Mixers in a relatable way. The campaign is endlessly riffable."

And much merriment ensued on set, Cornett ECD Whit Hiler tells Muse. "A lot of our talent stayed in character well before and in-between shooting," he says. "The step-grandma and grandpa dynamic was hilarious. Our Grandpa character was definitely enjoying every second of it, and it might have been one of the best days of his life."
