We love Ireland. We don’t only love Ireland because it’s where Google EU HQ is (alongside all of our past and present Google Account Managers!), but because it is pretty awesome.So, we put our heads together to share with you our favourite St Patrick’s Day campaigns!

 

1.) The Shamrock Milkshake

All the way in Chicago, USA, the Chicago River is dyed green every St. Patrick’s Day. This Shamrock Shake advert was created by advertising giant, Leo Burnett!

 

2.) noitulovE  (Evolution backwards)
