Produced by Ogilvy & Mather for Guinness, this artfully-done commercial doesn’t feature any bikini-clad supermodels fawning over beer-drinking dudes—and that’s why is stands out.
Unfortunately, it never aired in 1995. In fact, Guinness tried to deny it even existed, fearing negative backlash.
To the tune of Tammy Wynette’s “Stand by Your Man,” a handsome fellow gets ready for work, making a mess along the way. Meanwhile, a mysterious rubber-gloved hand picks up after him.
The tag line is a bit controversial, but hey, it’s the ’90s.
