The Royal Baby has arrived and with him, a slew of hilarious commercials satirizing the team of professionals all ensuring that the baby is brought into this world with every bit of comfort, including this Carling beer ad.

This Carling commercial begins with a decorator entering an unfinished nursery. After pumping himself up a bit, he sets to work, sawing and sanding and painting until he's drenched in sweat. Everything he does is delicate, and done with the utmost care. When he's finished, a butler enters, carrying a single glass of Carling on a tray.

He looks around, dismayed. The camera cuts to a long shot of the duo standing in the middle of the room, surrounded by pink walls. The butler advises the decorator to ask before he starts painting next time, as this baby is a boy. The decorator, embarrassed, takes the beer to drown his sorrows. This hilarious, albeit fictional, scenario is a fun and lighthearted take on the Royal Baby craze.
