Title: Change is Bad

Old Style Pilsner is a beer that's only sold in Western Canada. And its loyal drinkers have become almost violently attached to their beer's odd label -- an illustrated scene of a beautiful green valley filled with an eclectic mix of vehicles and characters including rabbits, monks, a stagecoach, and big yellow bi-plane. And twice in their history, Pilsner actually tried to change their label -- and twice it lead to catastrophic results. So, this video is Pilsner's mea culpa to its ardent fans. It's a re-affirmation of that classic western adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it”
