Remember those Tommy Lee Jones Japanese coffee ads that went viral on Facebook nearly ten years ago? I remember being so perplexed and intrigued at the time. What was this coffee in a can? And how did they get Tommy Lee Jones?
These ads are a trip if you haven’t seen them. Truly tremendous pieces of art, and to my gleeful surprise, the iced coffee in a can is actually available here in Australia. Too many times have I fallen in love with an international brand, just to have my heart ripped out to find out it’s exclusive to one country.
Not only is the coffee available here in Australia, but Suntory BOSS is actually holding a pop-up activation in Sydney to show off expert Japanese coffee making. Using a “Flash Brew” method famous in Japan, Suntory Boss is showing that baristas from Melbourne aren’t the only ones who know how to make a quality cup of joe.
