Anticipation

Rickard's is good to the last drop.
Rickards_1


This new spot for Rickard’s Blonde by CP+B in Toronto is missing something: namely the wise bartender who had a flair for similes when it came to the taste of Rickard’s beers. In this ad, the patrons of a pub wait with bated breath as the last drop of Rickard’s Blonde falls from the tap into a pint glass that’s been prepared by a different bartender. The question is who’s going to get the pint? We figure that had the ad lasted 15 seconds longer we would have been treated to an all-out bar brawl over who gets the Blonde. Right?
