New ad direction for Guinness

The campaign includes a TV commercial featuring a free-thinking cloud and outdoor ads in which a woodpecker carves an upright version of the leaning tower of Pisa out of a tree trunk and a swarm of fireflies creates a chandelier hanging from a branch.

“Guinness has always been synonymous with iconic advertising and this new creative direction for the brand presents great territory to connect with consumers.”
