Harbin explains cloud-based beer origin

A VFX-heavy spot by BBH Shanghai, Eight, and Fin Design + Effects.

This TVC for Harbin beer is impressive, but Ad Nut feels too much screentime is allotted to the uninteresting humans and not nearly enough to the super-cool animated airplane pilots. Here's hoping it's the first in a series, and that future episodes will tell us more about the friendly bear and his chimp friend.
