Director Peter Thwaites selected Český Krumlov for his new campaign for Guinness beer, which tells the story of a unique magic clock, which decides on its own to manage time in a manner that improves the fates of the town and local inhabitants.

The spot was filmed during October of last year and took five days to complete. The commercial will begin being broadcast in Great Britain as of 24 January.
