Frivolous Friday – “Win a Beer Robot”

Oh, if only we could, but I think the contest ended over five years ago. It’s still good for some fresh Friday fun, however, so here we go.

As far as I understand, the original concept was that if you collected 36 different “seals” from specially marked packages of Asahi, you would win a robot. The entire robot sequence takes more than three minutes, so if you don’t want to watch the whole thing then fast forward to the 1:55 mark to watch the beer being poured. What struck me is the consistent pour technique, but I’m not sure it would work if you had a can that gushed. Here’s the YouTube video:
