The new Guinness ad will hit you right in the feels.

From Business Insider:

Beer commercials are generally pretty juvenile.

For the most part, they depict men as unfeeling doofuses who only want to hook up with hot women and watch sports without being bothered by their wives.

But a poignant new ad from Guinness flips the switch by presenting a group of athletic, beer-drinking men who are defined as much by their kindness as their physical strength.

[…]

What’s exceptional about the ad is how it presents the characters’ sensitivity hand-in-hand with their physical strength and love for contact sports, implying that a Guinness drinker can love his friends as much as he loves his favorite beer and his favorite sport.

By doing so, Guinness distinguishes itself from its competitors by aligning its product with a brand of masculinity that has long been absent from beer advertising. 

Well played Guinness.  +1 marketing.

One: these images are perfection. Two: my goddaughter recently went on a binge of reading ALL the Calvin and Hobbes, then said to me, “Clovis is your Hobbes, isn’t he?" She’s a clever girl, my goddaughter.
