The £1m production, which airs this month until December, marks 50 years of iconic Guinness TV advertising and a return to the ‘Good things come to those who wait’ campaign after the ‘Out of the darkness comes light’ experiment.
Georgina Meddows-Smith, marketing manager for Guinness at Diageo UK, said:
“Quality has always been a big focus for the brand. Bringing back ‘Good things come to those who wait’ has allowed us to reinforce this in our advertising in a compelling way that celebrates Guinness as the ultimate pint.”
‘Noitulove’ (‘evolution’ spelt backwards), follows three friends drinking in a pub, who journey back through evolution, regressing into prehistoric figures and flightless birds to get the ultimate reward of a pint of Guinness. The advertisement is part of Diageo’s planned £5m marketing spend on the brand in the run-up to Christmas.
