Not shaken, not stirred: James Bond will be drinking beer—not his signature martini—in a scene in the next big-screen 007 installment starring Daniel Craig.

As part of a global ad campaign, Craig will be throwing back a Heineken in the upcoming "Skyfall" as well as on globally-run television spots, according to an Ad Age report.

Yahoo! Movies reached out to its audience to gauge reaction to Bond's Heiney. And it is news the Dutch beer company may want to sit down for:

"D**** you, Product Placement," Doug wrote on Twitter in response to our update on @YahooMovies. Davey C simply tweeted "Screw 'em." Dave Yakir echoed thoughts with a "what a load of crap" tweet, and Keith Williams typed, "Booooo!!!"

Craig drove a silverbirch Aston Martin DB5 in the early part of CASINO ROYALE

For SKYFALL? - Recently the rare NIB 1/24 scale silverbirch DB5s with all the trick stuff on it (not manufactured for years by Danbury Mint) on eBay are going for $468 and more

Go for a larger 1/18 DB5 and they are again being made by JoyRide and sold for somewhere around $60 - AUTOart DB5s go for a bit over $100

Used from the UK Just under $200

DB5s were in:

THUNDERBALL
GOLDFINGER
GOLDENEYE
CASINO ROYALE

I cannot verify if the well known DB5 will be back again in SKYFALL - But the sudden doubling and tripling of the prices 1/24 scale silverbirch diecast DM DB5s may provide a clue

HOO NOSE......

In Ian Fleming’s novel GOLDFINGER - There was no white 1964½ Mustang convertible - What car was in Fleming’s book - and what color was it?

In GOLDENEYE Bond in his silverbirch DB5 has another little race with a much more powerful red Ferrari F455 GTS - I always wondered why the producers did not use the more evenly matched older and very well known red Ferrari 308GTS - What well known actor drove a red Ferrari 308GTS - and in what show?

Which car did Bond drive in DR. NO - and how much did it cost the producers and why? (and not the mucho classic black ‘57 Chevy Bel Air convertible)

What car was ALMOST chosen for James Bond to drive in 007 movies? (I believe the director owned and drove one) Hint: Enzo Ferrari once said it was the most beautiful car in the world.....

In the movie DIE ANOTHER DAY - what was TRULY unique (and why) about both Bond’s silver Aston Martin Vanquish (and not the silly invisible car stuff) and the green Jaquar XKR a Bond movie villain drove in DAD?

What was WEIRD about the car chase scene in DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER -

No GOOGLING up the answers!

He did drink a beer in his hotel room in the novel “The Man with the Golden Gun”.
