Carlton Draught Presents an Epic Car Chase, Without the Cars Another faux-epic Aussie beer ad

Australian brewer Carlton Draught's long history of stupid-funny advertising continues this week with "Beer Chase," its latest faux-epic spot from Clemenger BBDO. The new :90 is a cops-and-robbers tale that cuts pretty quickly to the chase—although, amusingly, it's one that takes place entirely on foot. (Because what are you going to do, drink and drive?) It's basically the boozer's version of Saturn's famous old "Sheet Metal" spot, backed by an appropriately cheesy '80s anthem. "We used some poetic license with the locations so they would match your expectations of a classic car chase," said Ant Keogh, Clemenger ecd. Carlton Draught's previous hits include a notoriously big ad from 2005 and the slow-motion masterpiece from 2010. Credits after the jump.
