Guinness Does Honda Cog...For $21 Million
We've seen this Guinness ad. Have you? it falls squarely into the Honda Cog category. We're not saying it was a one take shot like Honda Cog was but it's pretty spectacular in its own right. It's said to have cost $21 million. That's a lot of money for a short lived commercial but one assumes it costs what it costs to make detail like this happen. We're not sure we like this spot or not. We admire its effort but it just doesn't seem as clever as the Honda Cog spot.
Some, though, might argue it's far more clever due to it's expansive nature as compared to the laboratory-like setting in which the Honda Cog spot was shot. As with anything, it's a matter of opinion. But $21 million is a lot of money to spend on a commercial. Especially one that isn't original. Then again, neither was the Honda Cog spot. But we're nitpicking here. It's a good spot. It's fun to watch. AMV/BBDO created.
