A Can Size for Every Aussie

It might seem weird that I’m writing about an ad for Heinz Baked Beans, from Australia no less, but sometimes a true work of art transcends all man-made boundaries and divisions, including the ones that say “I don’t care about commercials for baked beans.” “A Can Size for Every Aussie” is just such a work of art.

The obvious reference point for “A Can Size for Every Aussie” is Pixar‘s Up, and the whole Pixar emotional aesthetic in general – spoiler alert for this commercial, but it feels so Pixar-like that I honestly thought we were going to see this guy’s wife die and him consoling himself with beans.

Luckily, “A Can Size for Every Aussie” by Heinz doesn’t take that bleak turn, so I can recommend that you watch it below without reservation – except maybe that at three minutes and 15 seconds long you need a little extra time to enjoy it compared to an average commercial.
