Carrie Bradshaw and Jeff ‘The Dude’ Lebowski Abandon Their Signature Drinks

A few days ago the actor Jeff Bridges teased a new clip of one of his most iconic characters – Jeff ‘The Dude’ Lebowski from the Coen brothers’ film, The Big Lebowski – so there was naturally a bit of buzz generated. Was there a new film in the works…possibly a sequel or a spin-off? The teaser ended with the release date of Superbowl Sunday (02.03.19), so it was most likely either a film trailer or a big budget product advertisement.

It sees both ‘The Dude’ and Sex in the City protagonist Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jesica Parker) trading in their signature drinks – a White Russian and a Cosmopolitan (respectively) – for the basic Belgian beer, causing the staff at a fancy restaurant to lose their shit.
