Guinness And Jameson Prep For St. Patrick’s Day Next Week


Both Guinness and Jameson are prepping for the annual arrival of St. Patrick’s Day, which occurs next week on Friday, March 17, 2023.

Jameson Irish whiskey claims that they will pay someone to skip work on March 17 and leave a cardboard cutout bearing their likeness at their workplace.

Guinness is encouraging “toasting” and says they will offer more than $1 million – to be distributed in $10,000 cash prize increments – to two people in each U.S. state [plus the District of Columbia] for their toasting videos uploaded to a dedicated website by March 24, 2023.

For Jameson’s promotion, people have until March 10, 2023, to visit a dedicated website and order a $17.80 Jameson Desk Decoy — a life-size cardboard cutout bearing their likeness that can stand in for them at work – along with the offer of a $10,000 bonus to entries by people who pledge not to work on St. Patrick’s Day can be made on the Jameson website. On March 17, 2023, Jameson will video call a randomly selected entrant late in the afternoon and will award that person the $10,000 and if he or she is seen celebrating with friends, Irish whiskey and an empty work calendar.
