After 35 years John Cornell, Delvene Delaney and Paul Hogan have ‘got the band back together’ as Stop, Rosie and Hoges to record a commercial for ‘Hotel Brunswick Classic Brew’ the signature beer brewed in-house at the Hotel Brunswick with all profits going to the Fire Relief Fund.
Co-incidentally Mandy Nolan hosted Byron Live that featured Delvene as the major guest just one day after the momentous shoot that saw one of Australia’s most well
loved and culturally significant comedy trio’s back doing what they do best: make people feel good.
‘It was absolutely awesome to be back together on set. For just a moment, I got a glimpse of two old mates, Hoges and Strop, still sinking beers together, with Rosie the barmaid still cackling away!’ says Delvene of the 30 second commercial shot at the historic Hotel Brunswick that airs from 23 Jan.
The team included the writer of the campaign (Alan Johnston of MOJO advertising), the director Justin McMillan, his excellent first-class crew, family and friends as extras, and hotel staff and management. As owners of the Hotel Brunswick, Delvene Delaney, John Cornell and David Gyngell are committed to doing what they can for the current bushfire situation. Along with Paul Hogan, the hotel owners have already kicked in $200k for the Fire Relief Fund which is in support of wildlife rescue, forest repair and volunteer firefighters.
Once the fire crisis eases, the Hotel Brunswick Classic Brew ‘Top-Up Tap’ will continue to fund other worthy causes. So, when you quench your thirst with a Classic Brew, you’ll be giving too.
Now that’s a very warm-hearted coldie.
