This one’s all about execution. And I don’t think Lucas could direct this furry troupe the way the folks at Deutsch did. Maybe that’s why he’s retiring from blockbusters.
Apparently, this is only a teaser for some Game Day celebration tie-in that Volkswagen is sponsoring. There’s even a site where you can get your name (and more?) in a customized Star Wars crawl. Woof. Check it here.
It’s not often you find beers like Samichlaus on tap (the rare bottles are a Christmas tradition with me). Even more rare to find hand-doodled parodies gracing the pulls. Church Key in San Francisco‘s North Beach only has a few taps at a time but man does their artwork make up for their numbers. They put the hand in tap handles.
About the artist
I had to pull teeth out of the bartender as he was, unfortunately, not the most talkative or friendly. This is how I got to what I sorta believe to be the guy’s name:
ÜÜ: Did you draw these? They’re awesome. CK: No.
ÜÜ: Did someone else at Church Key draw them? CK: No.
ÜÜ: Do you know who did? CK: A local guy who comes in here.
ÜÜ: Happen to know his name? CK: Sean.
ÜÜ: Sean … ? CK: Sean Dick.
I couldn’t tell if that was the guy’s last name or the bartender just was being one. Making that my last beer at Church Key for the eve. However, I’ll go back and give ‘em another chance. And bring a better camera. In the meantime enjoy these seven killer tap handles by Sean Dick(?) …
Today is International (er, -Galactic?) Star Wars Day. What better way to celebrate than with new-ish spots for LEGO Star Wars III? Killer work by the same peeps who did the end-card animations for our ampmSecret Menu spots, The Core LA.
