This Awesome Guinness Commercial Will Warm The Cockles Of Your Heart

  • Rick Chandler

And it’s rare that we see hot cockles in a beer ad.

This outstanding Guinness commercial was released on YouTube on Tuesday, and if they’re nor careful they just might change the industry standard. It’s rare that we’re inspired by an ad for beer, and rarer still that such a commercial depicts men in a positive light. Where are the girls in bikinis, hilarious pets and misunderstandings with someone’s wife?

BBDO, New York, is the ad agency behind the spot.

Well played. Although as several commenters have pointed out, one rarely needs an excuse to buy Guinness.
