House has cold beer plumbing

Man comes home to find his house replumbed with cold Tui Beer
For Immediate Release: Monday 23 September, 2013
Tui Brewery, Saatchi & Saatchi and five keen lads have teamed up and brewed a special surprise for a good mate – by plumbing his whole house with icy cold Tui beer.
It took months of planning, a team of the brewery’s best beer technicians, an up-for-it plumber, 14 cameras, a heap of kept secrets and a generous helping of fresh Tui beer to turn a house-load of everyday taps into a dream come true.

Says Corey Chalmers, Creative Director: “Tui drinkers are clever schemers, and up for a laugh. We also know the boys wouldn’t buy into faking it so we needed to be authentic. We one hundred percent did this for real, and it shows. Luckily, our hero Russ was a master hardcase himself so once the deed was done, he was completely into the idea.”
Says William Papesch, Tui Marketing Manager: “At the Tui Brewery, there’s always something brewing, and when we’re not making a quality drop our mission is to give the boys ingenious ways to get together for a few beers. Like all great plans, we’re stoked with how well it all came together and we couldn’t have asked for a better bunch of guys to bring it to life. Even if
we now don’t have fingernails after a hair-raising shoot.”
Guy Roberts, Creative Director commented: “It went without a hitch, although the plumber did have to make sure it was properly connected so we didn’t feed beer back into the city water supply!”
