The Packard Brothers, whose "Hey, Pass Me A Beer" video went viral in 2012, are still at it and their new video was filmed in a number of local breweries.
The Milwaukee-based brothers, Jack and Nick Packard – who are filmmakers and marketing consultants – are on the fifth in their ongoing series of trick-shot beer passing videos, which have notched more than 100 million views to date.
They've also done videos like viral "Bowling Trick Shots" for the popular comedy website Funny or Die.
This one was made for Oktober Can Seamers, which makes can sealing equipment for breweries and taprooms.
The breweries featured in the video include 1840 Brewing, Enlightened, Black Husky, Good City, Indeed, Rock Bottom, Lakefront, MobCraft, Eagle Park, Big Head, The Explorium, Milwaukee Brewing, Broken Bat, Component, The Fermentorium and Third Space, as well as Rogues Gallery bar.
"We actually started shooting in October last year and just finished in early February," says Nick Packard. "We had to work around a lot of schedules, holiday parties and a new product (can seamer) for the client."
The video was posted on Friday and already has more than 3,500 views.
"(We) hope to spread the word on these great local breweries," says Packard. "Anything to help them in this time of transition for their business would be appreciated. They are all such amazing people that opened their doors to us while making the video."
Enjoy the video and then hit Saturday's Beer Drive-Thru, so you can have a good stock on hand to try this at home.
