Rum Rhythms

by Syd Briscoe


Bacardi: “The Sound of Rum” - 57s

It might seem out of character for a drinks brand to focus on the sound of their product, but Bacardi prove the proposition has legs in this lively commercial outing. 'The Sound of Rum' shines a spotlight on the audible aspect of cocktail making, bringing together bartenders from all over the world to show off their shaker skills.

Director Tucker Bliss keeps the energy up and the vibes good here, with rapid cuts and a party atmosphere contributing to the sense that everyone involved is having a grand old time. With a soundtrack created by producer and rapper Swizz Beatz especially for the occasion, this is a, er, spirited look at the classier end of drinking culture.
