Best beer advert ever!!

Writing about web page http://www.bigad.com.au/

Being a person who is allergic to alcohol, adverts about beer usually don't appeal to me, but this Australian one (pointed out to me by Kay) is fab:


Question: Does anyone remember an advert with squirrels on a garden assault course? (It was probably aired about 10 years ago)...was that a beer advert too?

  1. Yeah, that's a pretty damn cool beer ad. I think the squiggles advert was Hieneken (sic?)....reaches parts that others beers can not reach…something like that.

  2. It was for Carling Black Label.

    The squirrel did a huge assault course along wires, ramps, little carts etc and got to the nuts at the end. Then an owl turns to another who was also watching and says "I bet he drinks Carling Black Label". Then butch men voices sing "Carliiiiiiing Balcklabel."

  3. that is such a cool ad, so cool i might buy some carlton draught, or hire 100,000men in multi coloured costumes and watch them reinact it :)..........or maybe ill just buy the cheapest booze like normal.

  5. Does anyone else think the yellow leader in the ad looks like Mike Pilivachi?

  6. I'll just have to agree with you on that, Gavin – I've no idea what he looks like…

    Yea Though iirc the squirrel was done as part of someone's psychology degree. The set it in the garden, and had huge cones to stop the squirrel climbing up the poles. Only took a few days, for it to learn how to get from start to end, to get the nuts.
