Jackie Chan's 1978 film Drunken Master is rightly celebrated as a classic of the kung-fu genre, but, deftly choreographed wobbly flails and iconic implementation of Drunken Miss Ho aside, it possibly doesn't send the right message about consuming booze to excess.

Righting this wrong is the Thai Health Promotion Foundation's wonderfully silly homage, with a brilliantly cast Wong Fei-hung substitute going through the tipsy motions before realising that, without a tipple, his life could be more fulfilling.

Lovingly recreating tropes and techniques from 70's era Chinese action cinema, and filled with more than enough cheeky visual gags to keep the Chan-fans happy, Leo Burnett Bangkok and director Suthon Petchsuwan's high-kicking PSA heals the hangover of an inebriated icon.
