17 days till the most wonderful time of the year. No, we’re not talking about Christmas. Christmas is for amateurs. We’re talking St Paddy’s. The time when it’s socially acceptable to dress head to toe in green and start drinking at 9 am. We’ve been preparing for months, and now it’s time to shine. We got our very own leprechaun to help you navigate all our gear, and pick out just the right stuff. Check out the video below and see how he took it when we told him he was playing a leprechaun. Hint: it didn’t go over well
All we wanted was a jolly leprechaun to give a solid run down of all our new designs, but our actor wasn’t being a team player. We try to celebrate all our employees, but some aren’t exactly grateful for the spotlight.
His Irish anger boiled over not even 15 seconds into the shoot, spewing things about racism and discrimination, so we had to get creative.
Why not just use some one else, you ask? Well we tried, but he’s the only red head in the building and it didn’t feel as authentic as when he was on the big screen. We carried on as long as we could, dressing him up in our very best Irish gear.
But it all came to a head when our friendly neighborhood leprechaun smashed a beer bottle and tried to assault the camera man. Talk about stereotypical amiright?
But we persevered, and we carried on, and we put together a pretty damn compelling commercial. He may be a little scared, but he’ll learn to appreciate what we do for him in time.
