Philly Beer Week is fast approaching (June 1st through the 10th), and the brain trust behind the sudsy celebration produced a video to promote it. They tapped Casey Parker, the owner of Jose Pistolas and lead singer of Welcome to My Face, to play Ben Franklin.

In the video, Ben Franklin supposedly invents Philly Beer Week because of a sloppy, drunken roommate, and after failing to successfully invent other celebratory weeks. Of course, Parker will always take the opportunity to drop trou, and he doesn't disppoint in this one, either.
