Bacardi builds island—forgets Wilson.



Because nothing says youthful exuberance like converging powerboats and rock-throwing partygoers. Shot in Malta. Specialized dive units and aerial photography crews employed. Authentic elements utilized for the shoot including: a real island built on the water, imported fine tropical sand and palm trees, as well as a cast of 120 actors from Germany and the United States.

And it’s all up on the screen people. Who said extravagant shoots were only for Detroit! Not Bacardi.

How'd all those drunk people get home from the middle of the ocean after designing that oceangoing hazard?

And which was the first non-party boat to get shipwrecked?

Actually, I'm still trying to figure out how many vertebrae got broke jumping into their rooftop pillow pool.

Actually, actually, they're good commercials.
