The ad pairs up six strangers who hold very opposing views.
While soda may not be the perfect olive branch, Heineken’s new ad suggests beer could be more effective.
The beer spot, which Heineken says was truly unscripted, shows three pairs of strangers with very opposing views or professed intolerance building a bar together. They don’t know each other’s views at the time, but are later shown video of each other talking about issues like transgender rights, climate change and feminism.
After the IKEA-like assembling teamwork, all three pairs chose to sit down at the bar (over two Heinekens, naturally) to discuss their differences.
