    Fantastic! “The king o’ drinks, as I conceive it,Talisker, Islay or Glenlivet.”

    Very cool indeed, well done, thanks for the link!

  3. Tim Puett says:

    Very clever and creative.

    Well if you saw it, I’m glad, because someone pulled it. Rumor has it, it was Diageo, which I find hard to believe.

  6. Iain says:

    I believe Diageo pulled it, probably due to embarassment at the allusions to the brand’s Kilmarnock origins but also at press stories (whether true or not) that the actor Robert Carlyle supports the campaign to keep Johnnie Walker in Kilmarnock.

  7. John Hansell says:

    Iain, I could see that. Too bad, really.

  8. Iain says:

    Yep, a great ad. Reminded me of a shorter but equally good ad featuring Samuel L Jackson on British tv a year or so ago – can’t remember the name of the brand he was promoting though!

    Please tell me how to open double black with the plastic top with the ball cock?????
