Heineken – Let A Stranger Drive You Home

Heineken samples a Biz Markie favorite in this latest PSA/Commercial for the beer brand suggesting you keep drunk dialing the local retirement home until you convince someone there to come pick you and your posse of drunken friends up from the bar. This is one cool grandpa. I just wish mine was as big of a fan of early hip-hop as the one in this spot clearly is…

This was brought to you by w+k, Portland and the Jim Lasser Max Erdenberger/Ian Fairbrother (Art Director/Copywriter) duo. Stacy Wall from Epoch Films was the Director. Post production was primarily done at The White House and in case you don’t remember the name of the song, it’s Biz Markie“Just A Friend.”
