GALLERY 07: Rolling Rock - Saved by the Rock

Once again the Americans display their talent for great comedy writing. A well-observed series of spots hilariously depicts the peculiarities of the male of the species. The two shown here, 'Saved by the Rock' and 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' talk to guys at their level and accurately convey the sense of camaraderie so important to beer advertisers. The casting is accurate and the performances natural and convincing, allowing the scripts to shine through.
