Full script of the ad IN ENGLISH, REGARDLESS OF THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE OF THE AD
CHOIR: Maker a Laker, it’s a buck a beer! ANN: That used to be our jingle, but beer prices have gone up. New price, new jingle! CHOIR: Maker a Laker, it’s a dollar six point six six seven a beer! ANN: Like sand through an hourglass! Even works in Vietnamese! CHOIR: Maker a Laker, (in Vietnamese) It’s a dollar six point six six seven a beer! ANN: Ontario’s own Laker Beer. Only twenty-five sixty a two-four, plus deposit. Because a higher price would be criminal.

Brief Explanation
Laker is a leading discount beer brand in the Canadian province of Ontario. The brand was notorious for its jingle (Maker a Laker, it's a buck a beer!), which was tied directly to the government's lowest legal price per beer. When the government raised that lowest legal price, it rendered Lakers' jingle obsolete... or did it?
