Apart from producing the lovely dark liquid that fills a pint glass so nicely, Guinness have always done quirky and funny adverts. This is their latest one and it's superb - it shows a community coming together to create the mother of all domino-toppling spectacles - which includes cars, flaming hay bales and grandfather clocks. And … one heck of a beautiful ending :)

Haha that was an awesome commercial. They really do have some marketing and advertising geniuses over at Guinness. And they have delicious beer.

Man, that's a beautiful pint. Only thing missing is the shamrock in the head ...
I know...I came really close to going to the store to buy some Guinness after I saw this thread. Heck, I still might go...LOL.

Ouch - times are bad if you're on that - I had to turn away from the screen!
Long time ago, in hard times, used to drink Hofmeister - their slogan was 'Follow The Bear' and they had a big, goofy bear as mascot - I think you were meant to follow the bear in order to collect his piss, because that is roughly how it tasted, lot like Natty Light really ...

Just in case there's any delay, you may want to start drawing a good beer. Make it look icy cold, good head on it :laugh2:

Ok, just to do a quick little survey here; how many of you Guinness lovers here do and do not have some Irish in you? I'm still working on the theory that only those with at least a little Irish in them actually like Guinness, hehe. :laugh2:It seems to me that the only people I've come across that truly hate Guinness are those with no Irish in them!

Anyway, long live Guinness!

I've often wondered why people embed youtube clips as flash on this site. Aren't a lot of us surfing here on our iPhones? Give us the link!

p.s. saw it on the desktop... brilliant... they've done a lot of good ads in the past, look them up!

I don't have a lick of Irish in me...I'm pure Dutch. But I love my Guinness. Maybe I'm an exception to the rule :)

I would have to say I'm another exception. Primarily English and Italian but gotta love the Irish beers.
