…Guinness is great for dominoes?

Guinness

Guinness harnessed the power of the Rube Goldberg style dominoes chain for their latest commercial, and the results are rather impressive.

It apparently took an entire week to film, with some sequences requiring up to 15 reshoots, so I can only imagine the dedication that these dominoes builders displayed. I’d say it was worth it though:

…It’s Website Wednesday: RED Universe?

RED Universe

The RED Universe is a chat space designed to advertise for the RED Interactive Agency. Inside of the universe, you can run, fly, chat, dance and punch each other in a classic old-timey style that reminds me of the Guinness commercials. It’s simple, but it’s captivating in an AOL chat room sort of way. Brilliant!

…Judith Supine makes unique street art?

Judith Supine

Judith Supine has a very unique street art style; combining collaging and painting with poster sized printing to make caricatures that kind of remind me of the Brilliant! guys from the Guinness commercials. The following video goes through the entire process one of his pieces goes through on its way to becoming art. It’s an interesting look inside the work of an undergound artist.

…Beer school is much more fun than regular school ever was?

Dethroner offers up a five-beer list to get you started in the world of beer tasting. Though not necessarily some of the best beers on the market (though they are good), they are available nation wide, represent a wide palate and are mild enough for most to enjoy without being put off by strong and strange tastes. Though I agree with some of their choices (Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a classic, Yuengling has history and Guinness is most everyone’s introduction into the world of stouts), I think there are better choices than Dos Equis Amber and St. Pauli Girl Special Dark. Try out a bottle of Fat Tire, Anchor Steam or Newcastle for a treat of the tongue with quite a bit more flavor than a standard Bud. Beer is a great deal about personal preference though, so pick up a few varieties and give each a fair chance, you never know which one may strike your fancy.
