GALLERY 13: Amstel - Looking After

The three guys in this commercial were first used in an Amstel campaign in 1998. They proved so loveable and easy to identify with, that they became the face of the brand and have now starred in more than 30 commercials. Aiming to maintain the association of Amstel with friendship, the latest ad shows the trio dealing with a post-holiday trauma. Well-observed scenarios and convincing performances mean this long-running campaign remains a hit.
