Fernet 1882, a new brand of amaro produced by Porta Hermanos, is associated with a series of quirky TV ads in Argentina. This recent advertisement promotes Fernet 1882 with a male choir responding to the flow of the liquor. As the choir assembles, the numerals for 1882 appear one at a time on the screen. With a series of one-syllable words the men launch into a celebration of their favourite drink. Up in the control box a technician turns taps to direct the flow of foam from the heads of the back row, creating an effect to the Mentos/Diet Coke experiements. The spot finishes with fireworks.
