This Glass of Guinness Waits for Someone Special

BBDO New York's 'Empty Chair' Strikes Emotional Chord

Published on Jul 07, 2014

Editor's Pick

A solitary glass of Guinness waits patiently atop an empty table, next to an empty chair, in this emotional new ad from BBDO New York and Biscuit director Noam Murro. Night after night, a bartender sets a pint of the brew on a table in her pub and shoos away nightly patrons as they approach to take a sip -- that is, until one special customer comes along.
