Scratchin' For A Guinness

I was forwarded the link to some mpeg files from a Guinness ad campaign that featured Lee "Scratch" Perry hawking his favorite stout, all the way back in 2001! I know if I was in charge of advertising over there at ol' St. James' Gate I would never have drawn a correlation between the two or even contemplated putting the Upsetter in the role of a pitchman but, the results are incredible! Thanks to Smokeyroom.Net for making them available. Check 'em out!

He He, I was wondering why I was so fond of the black stuff.
If it's endorsed by Scratch it's good enough for me.
Nice share!
