This week, Guinness launched a new ad set in Brazzaville, Congo. Continuing the themes of friendship and good times from their Basketball ad only this time around we see a community of real friends. It's a lovely ad and the truth of it makes it all that much better.

The ad follows the lives of the Sapeurs, or the "society of elegant persons of the Congo", a group of well dressed, fun loving and incredibly cool people. Just check out this documentary which Guinness has released alongside the ad.
