Fort Thomas Coffee, Zac Efron Make Cameos in Short Film


Fort Thomas Coffee and Zac Efron made a cameo in a commercial for Bombas, "the most important pair of socks in the world."

The company borrowed a philosophy for Toms, the shoe company that donates a pair of shoes for everyone purchased, after one of the owners saw a quote on Facebook that said that socks were the most requested clothing item at homeless shelters.

They recently sold (and donated) their five millionth pair and made a video to celebrate.

A few freelancers from Cincinnati, Benjamin Nelson and Douglas Gautraud, produced the video and scouted locations that would work well in their short film.

Enter Fort Thomas Coffee.


It's just a brief moment in the video, but brag-worthy nonetheless. It's well shot and produced and completely worthy the three minutes and thirty seconds it takes to watch it.
