Tennent’s Lager’s Wellpark, the online animation series the company has launched, features Dr Dunfermline in its latest episode. It also features an unfortunate patient put to the test when he receives a diagnosis from Dr Dunfermline. Poor Ken (‘ken’ get it?) has been diagnosed with the Hepatitis, but despite his best attempts cannot work out from Dr Dunfermline if it’s Hepatitis Eh, B or C.
You can watch Dr Dunfermline’s diagnosis at visitwellpark.com. The brewer is also offering free downloads of a sicknote from Dr Dunfermline from its Wellpark website, with excuses such as a dose of the “cannybebotherds” or a bout of “noevencarings” and a prescription for a free reign to head to the pub and enjoy a pint of Tennent’s.
JP Murphy, Head of Brand Marketing at Tennent’s said, “There’s no doubt that accents from across Scotland all have their own quirks and can be a little tricky to understand for anyone not from round that way, so we thought it’d make a great subject for our latest Wellpark sketch.
“Ye ken? Now the sun has started to show its face again, there will be plenty of people looking for a reason to head to their local beer garden. As a bit of fun, we knew that an East Coast Doctor’s note will be the perfect cure to get out of any prior arrangements.”
