‘Elon Musk’s level of humor’ – fans unimpressed with Conor McGregor’s new whiskey ad
Social media users were heavily criticized after watching Conor McGregor appear in an “absolutely awful” ad for his brand of whiskey.
The Dubliners announced a new flavor of Right No Twelve whiskey ahead of his UFC return.
Earlier, he teased a “big announcement” with a photo of himself dressed up as the late Apple founder Steve Jobs, leading fans to believe there could be a collaboration with the tech giant. .
However, many were disappointed when McGregor finally revealed that his key information was simply a brand new apple whiskey product.
He shared the announcement alongside an ad parodying the company Apple – which received mixed reviews from followers.
Some were not impressed with the “terrible” ad, others just commented: “Steve Cringe McGregor”.
Another commented that the clip was “Elon Musk’s level of humor” while another added: “What’s with this edit? Obviously the kid has the work experience to do it.”
One fan was disappointed by McGregor’s announcement, writing: “Lol is this an announcement? @thenotoriousmma I’m excited for a McGregor Apple Watch or something lol.

Others praised the 34-year-old’s most recent post, including his fiancée Dee Devlin, who exclaimed: “Wonderful!! What a man and what a drink! I’m so proud of you baby!! delicious.”
And broadcaster Adam Catterall agreed: “This is amazing. Think your acting skills have peaked with the BT Sport ‘The Irishman’ commercial. I’m wrong. Congratulations on the new product and good luck with it.”
Another admired the video, saying: “What a bad ad it’s really great.”
It comes after Liam Neeson called McGregor a “goblin” who gave Ireland a “bad name”.
The Taken star told Men’s Health: “That little goblin Conor McGregor, he’s got a bad reputation for Ireland. I know he’s a good fit, and I admire him for that. But I can’t stand it.”
Not only did Neeson slam McGregor, the Northern Irishman also took aim at the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) by comparing it to two men fighting in a pub.
He said: “UFC I can’t stand it. That to me is like a fight in a bar.
“I know trainees will say, ‘no, you’re wrong – we have months of training.’ Why don’t you just grab a beer and hit the other guy on the head?
