Daniel Wolfe Paints The Town for Guinness



New spot from Saatchi & Saatchi celebrates Arthur’s Day

Daniel Wolfe Paints The Town for Guinness


Move over Mick Jagger, it appears you ain’t the only one desperate to ‘Paint It Black’. The new commercial for Guinness sees various noir-obsessed party-goers show their love for the black stuff by turning their surroundings noir.

Somesuch & Co’s Daniel Wolfe is the director behind this spot, which sees cars, houses, roads and bunting smeared in thick black gloop. Entitled Paint The Town, there’s a lively soundtrack and party atmosphere. The spot reaches a finale as the town elder shouts ‘To Arthur’, a reference to Guinness founder Arthur Guinness.
The campaign is building up towards ‘Arthur’s Day’ 2012, which falls on the 27th and 28th of September. Guinness – and ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi – have nominated these two days to celebrate the work of Arthur Guinness and his legacy.
