Bootlegger Teams up with 73 Degree Films to promote Wrexham Pubs!
To celebrate the reopening of indoor hospitality in Wales this week, 73 Degree Films are releasing 'Bootlegger's Guide to Wrexham Pubs'.
The video features Bootlegger (world-renowned Wrexham FC fan Karl Philips) and Rob from 73 taking part in a virtual pub crawl, using a giant green screen to appear in pubs all across Wrexham.
The 11 minute video on the 73 Degree Films Youtube Channel contains comedy sketches, challenges and quizzes everywhere from The Turf to The Parish.
"We wanted to make something to get everyone excited to support their local pub. It's a celebration of these amazing places and we couldn't think of anyone better to do that with than Bootlegger, he's a Wrexham legend." - Rob Corcoran.
The idea came about after Karl and Rob met while filming for S4C at Christmas time in Gwersyllt. 73 Degree Films had been making monthly videos for Youtube and wanted to work with pubs in the area for a special project to promote the town centre in time for things to begin opening up.
Rob and Karl's conversation was filmed in Wrexham town centre in early May with support from The Foundry and a cast and crew of local media professionals including Owen Jones, Gareth Roberts, Charlie Williams and Scott Fitzgerald. Filming inside the pubs took place just after, with everyone excited to be reopening.
“It’s great to be watching Wrexham FC at Saith with a full pub of friends rather than at home in front of the laptop!” - Chris Evans, Chair, Saith Seren.
From Monday indoor hospitality in Wales has been allowed to reopen, with up to six people from six households allowed to eat or drink together.
"It's great to see people back in the tap and thanks to all our customers that brought beer for home delivery over the last couple of months, your support is really appreciated " - Richard Lever, Magic Dragon Brewery Tap.
"The Royal Oak would love to say thank you to the Joules Brewery who not only have fantastic pubs and amazing real ales but what incredible support system they have been to us at the Wrexham tap house." - The Royal Oak.
73 Degree Films are now preparing for a series of projects taking place over the summer, including more ambitious videos involving the town centre. You can keep up to date with everything here:
