Molson Canadian: The Beer Fridge

Sometimes you're most proud of where you're from, when you're somewhere else. That's what led us to build a beer fridge full of Molson Canadian and trek it across Europe. The only way to open it? A Canadian passport.

I like real things and I like staged things. But this feels like a staged thing pretending to be real, which I don't like.

Also, as soon as those Europeans taste the beer the Canadian will be chased out of town.

If I was in the desert and it was there, I'd kiss the ass of the Canadian who got it to open.

Not such a bad idea. If it was in a backpackers district, I'm sure it would get surrounded by a bunch of alcohol scavenging youths who would go nuts when it got opened, but what are the odds of a Canadian appearing in any of the stupid locations featured in the video, or happening to have their passport on them??? Anyway, awesome cheese factor and fakeness... I cringed and laughed simultaneously.

Great concept Seems like Coke would do the same thing though.

I like the basic idea. It's hard to overlook how fake/staged it is.

It's really inspiring! I love the idea and the execution, perfectly for people to be proud of who they are no matter where they live <3

Way too staged. I've never been a fan of this style of experiential/guerrilla activation "caught on film", especially a spot like this that is clearly over produced. huge belly flop.
