A number of days in the past, a truck in Sydney seemed to be caught between a rock and a tough place, properly, a constructing and a constructing.
Despite hypothesis the driving force was drunk (the truck was clearly displaying an advert for Furphy, a beer model), it was really all simply good advertising. The truck was intentionally positioned in a wierd place. And it received our consideration, after all.
Although I’m about to partake in a self-imposed dry-May (taking ideas for a greater identify), I fairly like Furphy, and I’ve not seen this round my stomping floor earlier than.
We tracked down the precise story (I do know, I do know, no Pulitzer right here, but it surely is a Friday arvo, of us). Here’s what they needed to say.
The set up was commissioned by Furphy (clearly) to have a good time the launch of the brand new Furphy Crisp Lager. Furphy labored with set up artist James Dive and Scoundrel Projects to deliver to life the “impossible Crisp Truck set-up”.
“Furphy is all about unbelievable storytelling and the ‘what the truck’ installation is a fitting way to get people talking about Furphy Crisp Lager,” stated Malcolm Eadie, Lion portfolio director for craft and premium beer (what a job title, eh?).
“We wanted to create a scene, to have CBD commuters to find a truck that was not only blocking their way, but also in a genuine predicament that would make people wonder ‘how did it get up there?’” Dive added.
The Furphy truck is wedged upright on Little Hunter Street in Sydney’s CBD if you wish to test it out. Strange ‘things’ have popped up in Sydney of late, from a giant af dinosaur to that creepy doll from Squid Game, however now Furphy is now throwing its hat into the ring.
Mystery solved. Happy Friday, of us!
