The simplest beer ad ever.

(click poster, via) First, context: This pleasingly graphic, copy-less, logo-less Guinness poster is not a print execution; it's currently hanging in NYC bars. But it could almost work as a print ad, depending on the publication. If you've been following this blog for awhile, you know that I often lower my ad flamethrower by Friday (or, it just needs to gassed up). But I actually do like this poster—a pint of Guinness and a coaster turned into an exclamation point. I want a fucking Guinness right now at 8:30 in the morning (I'm Irish). Now, I was taught in stupid useless ad school never to use exclamation points in headlines or copy, but I'll allow this. Via my good bud David Lubars and BBDO NYC.

As an equally scathing critic I too really like this ad. You know it's good when you think"Damn, I should have done this!"
