Plot / Description

"John Jameson Iron Horse TV Spot" 
This commercial shows the founder of Jameson Irish Whiskey, John Jameson reading about the new "Iron Horse" steam locomotive in his town's newspaper. As with any new technology, this train had problems, and one day, with a car full of screaming and scared women, the Iron Horse got out of control and the conductor couldn't stop it. Jameson casually finished his breakfast and then rode after the train (which also happened to be carrying a load of his precious Irish Whiskey) on his horse. He climbs aboard the speeding train from his horse, and throws the engineer onto the horse to save him. Unfortunately, Jameson didn't know how to stop the train either. As it approached the end of the railroad track, he pulled the pin connecting the other cars to the engine to save them. He then jumps off the engine himself before it flies over a cliff. Luckily for him, the steam engine crashes into an invading Prussian ship, saving Ireland in the process.

Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

When the new, so called, Iron Horse decided to run wild, John Jameson casually finished his breakfast before taking matters into his own hands. After all, he was quite fond of its precious cargo. Calmly, he relieved the engineer - a decision he would instantly regret. Selflessly, he rescued his whiskey, and for good measure, he set the Iron Horse free to roam greener pastures, coincidentally saving all of Ireland from the Prussian Incursion of 1807. Which is the reason why nobody has ever heard of the Prussian Incursion of 1807.
