The man who walked around the world

I watched two short films featuring four friends by Chivas Regal which I have already told you are nothing special. Today I watched "The man who walked around the world" featuring Robert Carlyle by Johnnie Walker and I really liked it. A nice concept, well executed. It is not trying to be grand or something philosophical, simply explaining the history of the company. I like it much better than the Chivas Regal. One thing though I am not able to figure out - if you already have the movie on YouTube, why do you require users to signup/login on your own website.

The movie starts with a piper playing who is asked by Robert Carlyle to "Shut it", I am sure the piper represents a competetior like Segrams (who owns the brand 100 pipers) but a Scottish icon here could have a bigger of different meaning. I would love to know more about it, do let me know if you have some insight into it. Keep Walking
