Chris Weston gets hammered for Jagermeister commercial

After a storied career drawing comics on both sides of the Atlantic, Chris Weston found one of the coolest gigs for any comic artists: creating storyboards. And after a long working relationship with filmmaker Albert Hughes on The Book of Eli and an aborted Akira adaptation, Weston re-teamed with the director for a different kind of project: an ad for the German liqueur Jagermeister.

Titled “A Seat At The Table,” the live-action spot was storyboarded by Weston based on Hughes’ ideas. The director then used Weston’s drawings to do a strict reproduction, down to a statue of arctic explorers. You can see the completed commercial is below, and check out Weston’s storyboards on his blog.

Bad headline for this. Makes it sound like he’s being criticized for doing this ad.

“getting hammered” is slang for “getting drunk” so fits quite well considering it’s about an alcohol commercial

Usually I think alcohol commercials are quite silly, but this one’s pretty cool. Still kinda silly, but I like it.

Now I wish I was drunk.
