Guinness, The secret of life : Students’ Spec Work Miami Ad School

Brought to you by two Irish bartenders who are also ad students.

This Guinness spec was made by Miami Ad School students Tadhg Ennis and Brendan Irving. While both working as bartenders to pay for their tuitions, they came up with the idea to make a branded content piece that talks about the correlation between the bartender and a pint of Guinness.

Just like Guinness, the bartender is more than meets the eye. They are a group of philosophers, comedians, artists, and rogues. A distinct group that is complex on many levels. We take time growing into our skin, but once we do we are full of character and unapologetically authentic.

This work, comes from the bottom of our hearts to the bottom of your glass.

 

 

The Perfect Guinness Ad for the Perfect St. Patrick’s Day
Brought to you by two Irish bartenders—who happen to be advertising students

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Miami Ad School students from the New York campus Tadhg Ennis and Brendan Irving have released a brand-new Guinness spec. While both working as bartenders to pay their tuition, they came up with the idea to make a branded content piece that celebrates the correlation between the bartender and a pint of Guinness.

The two teamed up with producer and fellow Irishman Brian O’ Carroll (Blue Caprice) and director Nicholas Gray (The Paper Store) to fully realize the one-minute spot.

Just like Guinness, the bartender is more than meets the eye. He—or she— belongs to a tribe of philosophers, comedians, artists, and rogues. A distinct group that is complex on many levels—also like Guinness. They may take time growing into their skin, but once they do, they’re full of character and unapologetically authentic… much like a certain dry stout.

This work comes from the bottom of our hearts to the bottom of your glass.
