Heineken: The City is a commercial for the popular beer brand Heineken, and was made by Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam. The ad sees one man go around his hometown in search of a woman he mysteriously set eyes on while hopping in a cab. She left leaving a clutch behind filled with various business cars, so the man thought he'd visit these spots to see if he could find the girl.

What ensues is a hilarious adventure where the man finds himself in the most unlikely situations, from winning a horse race to having a quick shave while drinking a Heineken (of course). This is a clever marketing campaign that excites the adventurous and curious traits in most people watching, which is exactly the goal.
