Becks surprises passengers waiting for baggage at Frankfurt Airport

German beer brand, Becks, surprised travellers at Frankfurt Airport with a crate of beer on the luggage belt. This refreshing PR stunt was designed to celebrate the launch of three new types of beer Amber Lager, 1873 Pils and Pale Ale.  It transpires that, due to alcohol restrictions,  the beer is not genuine but it still created a high buzz amongst social media with the waiting travellers posting onto facebook and Twitter.

Beck'speriment challenge men to keep their partner in a shop

Shopping, possibly the longest and most excruciating time in a man’s life, especially if its not shopping for them. But would you be able keep your partner inside a clothing store for a whole hour to win a truck full of Beck’s beer?
The experiment was set up by Beck’s to highlight the benefit of compromising in a relationship, the quirky challenge was for men to keep their partner in a women’s designer clothing store for a whole hour. The rules were simple, they weren’t allowed to tell their partner about the challenge and if their partner left the shop before the hour they lost.
It’s a fantastic stunt that shows just what men would do for a truck full of beer and who wears the pants in the relationship.
