So, An Indian Guy Walks Into an Irish Pub…

Since St. Patty’s Day falls on a Saturday this year, we’ll start the party a little early by bringing you this little ditty from one of the oldest Irish pubs in the nation, New York City’s own McSorley’s. It’s not the choice watering hole for yours truly, but apparently its ale has some interesting effects on Indian guys like myself. One of the copywriters on this spot, which was directed by Matt Fischman and basically given to the 158-year-old drinking institution, is none other than Tom Christmann (Scott Kaplan was the other CW). We’re checking to make sure that it’s the same Tom Christmann that left JWT for the freelancing life last fall. Anyhow, slainte! Update: Yes, it is that Christmann, indeed.
