Aussie does come up with some awesome beer commercials.... pity that most of their beer is only marginally less shit than most American beer! Over processed, full of chemicals and preservatives, tastes like shit.

Quoting Aeroflot001 (Reply 14): Heineken commercials tend to be great, since you claim that Argentina has the best commercials care to share any links
You may know that Buenos Aires is a mini-Hollywood for advertising, and lesser extent Rosario and Mar del Plata, it exports around the world. It's a really big industry that took off with the 2002 devauation when it was ultra cheap to film ''european looking commercials'' for the US and European markets. But even before Argentina always had good commercial industry. While still value friendly, the industry is way past just being good for being ''cheap'', it's now very much a value added sector.
Quite a few of the adds in US or European TV are in fact streets or cities in Argentina with Argentine actors. Sometimes they are altered with CGI so that either the cars or some other structures fit the intended market. The vast majority of people in those countries don't even know it.
Another place that I know is like that is Prague.
In terms of quality, every Latin American that has seen them will admit Argentine commercial blow away the others from the region, and we know how nationalistic Latin Americans can be, so to admit that should speak volumes. Besides they win countless awards every year. So there is overwhelming evidence!
I have posted some in the past here, but because mostly they are in Spanish, people here may not be interested.
