Tooheys New is the subject of a new beer ad from Australia, this time based on the rugby field. The ad is set in the context of “Rehearsal No. 36″. Five players recreate a try (placing the rugby ball over the ‘try line’), sparking off a celebration from their team mates and supporters. By celebration I mean acrobatics, balancing acts and general drinking of Tooheys New beer. The ad is given its quirky nature with the addition of a beer-drinking dwarf, couple of cannons, a stag on the podium, and a fly-by banner “For the Love Of the Wallabies“. I’m not too sure how this fits in with official polices relating to mixing alcohol consumption with playing rugby on the field.
