Call it branded oral surgery.

In a ridiculous, hilarious and, yes, very real campaign from Ogilvy Argentina, Salta beer has designed tooth implants for the country's rugby players who have lost teeth in games. And very special implants they are—they function as bottle openers.

Check out the video below, which really goes into detail about how this is done. In other words, be warned—it's not for the squeamish.
