Well it's Friday so I've got beer on my brain (and in the bloodstream). Guinness has just started running their newest commercial, which is the most expensive for them to date. They contracted the world record holder in domino toppling 'Weijers Domino Productions' from the Netherlands for all the pandemonium.
The commercial was directed by Nicolai Fuglsig of Sony Bravia 'Balls' fame, and is a celebration of community. The advert was shot on location in a remote side village called Iruya, in the Salta region of northern Argentina, with a population of around 1,000 people. Toppling items included: 6,000 dominoes, 10,000 books, 400 tyres, 75 mirrors, 50 fridges, 45 wardrobes and 6 cars.
Now that was a good commercial. And from the look of things those people in the village really love themselves some Guinness. Now I'm not going to go as far as to say I'm moving there, but I did just buy a one-way ticket on Expedia and I've already got my bags packed. Who needs a clean water supply anyways when you live in a village with a serious stockpile of Guinness. Not I.
