This short was made for "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" Paddy's Pub commercial contest sponsored by Coors. The rules were simple: make a spot for the fictional bar from the show no longer than 20 seconds. I came up with the idea while taking a morning hangover dump so I thought it was appropriate. We were referencing the show's reoccurring joke with Frank in the bar's basement gambling illegally with a whole bunch of shady Asians. The prize was they would air the spot on FX during the show, not much of an incentive (they only got about 30 entries), but we were fans of the show so it was mainly for fun. Unfortunately we were rejected for some unknown reason, I tried contacting the website masters to find out why, but they never responded. My best guess is that literally every character in this film has some form of smoking apparatus in their mouth...
