The much anticipated follow up to Molson's beer fridge commercial is here. On Thursday, December 19th, the brand released a 2:45 second online spot that will also air during the Canadian World Junior hockey tournament at the same length, essentially taking up entire commercial breaks. The previous beer fridge commercial was the 2nd most viewed commercial online in Canada last year.
The new spot chronicles the journey of three real friends, two of them surprising the other one(who's a rabid hockey fan) currently living 10,000 miles away in the Gili Islands in Indonesia where there are no motorized vehicles whatsoever. The friends come armed with precious cargo: a satellite system for the Olympic Games, and of course a red fridge stocked full of Molson Canadian. A 30-second version of the ad is set to debut on Dec. 26h.
"The Beer Fridge - Project Indonesia" is directed by Tyler Williams of Untitled Films via Rethink.
