Guinness Slide from Bar to Office

The legendary status of the freshly poured Guinness is celebrated in “Slide”, a television commercial spanning the bar and the workplace with a myriad of special effects. A fresh pint of Guinness is slid down a bar by a bartender. We then follow the pint down the end of the bar, out the bar and through city streets and offices. The Guinness arrives just in time to be drunk by “bold” employee who is in salary negotiations with his new boss.
