That appears to be something called "Jack's"--perhaps in reference to Sandler's last high-concept trainwreck, Jack and Jill? And, wow, if that's the case, then maybe the Bud Light-esque beers are actually visual metaphors for Adam Sandler's films as a whole: thin, tasteless, yet inexplicably popular, downed by the public and needlessly strewn across the American landscape as hollow reminders of a night's soon-forgotten distraction. But no, I'm kidding. It's just funny the dad is an alcoholic.
