Only Canadian Passports Can Open this Molson Beer Fridge

'I Am Canadian' tagline returns

Editor's Pick

Rethink brings back the infamous "I Am Canadian" tagline (immortalized by not-a-lumberjack Joe from this iconic commercial) for a spot for Molson Canadian that featured a beer fridge, stocked with the beverage, that was placed in many European cities. The catch? You could only open it by scanning a Canadian passport -- and then, maybe, sharing it with your new foreign friends. A 30-second version of the spot debuted last night during Game Six of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and is also timed to celebrate Canada Day, which falls on July 1. Check out the making-of here.
