Hands down, a great Guinness commercial

Got around to watching this “Hands” spot from Guinness, which is quite an innovative display of hand origami if I’ve ever seen one. Granted, it doesn’t have much to do with beer (or drinking, judging by the dexterity shown here), but I still liked it. I even enjoyed the accompanying song, which is a rarity for me. But did anyone else notice the split-second middle fingers about halfway through the ad? Just wait until the pedants who held Prince’s guitar pose under a microscope get hold of it. UPDATE: Here’s a microsite connected to the spot, with behind-the-scenes footage and more.
