Creative agency R/GA Australia and alcohol service company Jimmy Brings teamed up to create 2020 in a Can by asking themselves: "if 2020 was a drink, what would it taste like?" The answer comes in the form of a truly disgusting combination of ingredients to represent the bitterness of the year. As Michael Titshall, VP, managing director of R/GA Australia, describes: “Think stale breath from too much face-mask wearing, foamy hand sanitizer, and a salty aftertaste that lingers.”
The exclusive run of revolting beverages was created by layering flavors like salt, toothpaste, black jelly beans and coriander. To ring in the New Year, people are encouraged to order a can and capture their reaction to tasting 2020 in a Can for their chance to win great perks like $2,021 in cash.
