Speaking of Irish whiskey, Jameson has found an unlikely celebrity ally in musician Anderson .Paak.

Paak stars in a video for the Pernod Ricard-owned distillery’s new campaign, which revolves around saving local bars and uses the hashtag #LoveThyBar.

“This cause with Jameson is one I can get behind because it’s part of my story,” said .Paak in a release.

“It feels like nearly all the bars that we came up in within our hometown are done, they’re just not there anymore. Music will suffer if we don’t value the local spots, the neighbourhood bars, where you can roll up and play to just the staff if that’s the vibe. When you are trying to figure out who you are, as an artist or a person, you need to go bounce stuff off real people, new people, strange people and discover yourself through being around others. Get your crew together, go out and #LoveThyBar
