The Man Who Walked Around the World

A friend of ours sent us this excellent promo for Johnny Walker, a six minute opus on the history of the brand. Six minutes seems like a long time for a video with no exploding cars, girls on trampolines, or the other hallmarks of the Web, but this video, you'll notice, is done in a take with no cuts. Legend has it that means a full two days of shooting and 40 takes from a certain Mr. Robert Carlyle, and he absolutely nails it. We kind of wish Carlyle had gone just a little bit Begbie from Trainspotting and hit at least one dude with a pint glass, but we'll take least he didn't go the Full Monty.

Thanks Doug - we're glad Tool Snob has time to drink in between playing with power tools.
