Bacardi steals performance act for new ad campaign

The San Francisco prankster group The Cacophony Society has for years been running against the Bay to Breakers run dressed as salmons.

Now RKCR/Y&R in London has come up with a completely unique concept of having people dressed as salmons run against a race in New York. OK, I was sarcastic. They have stolen the whole thing, including twists like one salmon ending up in a bar, available above.

And to give credit where credit is due (as opposed to RKCR) I found this story on Laughing Squid.
