WATCH: Liam Neeson Narrates Ireland's St. Patrick's Day Commercial

We know Liam Neeson has a very particular set of skills, skills that he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that have led to him making not just two Taken movies with another on the way, but also "Non-Stop" (Taken on a plane), "A Walk Among the Tombstones" (Taken in a cemetery) and "Run All Night" (Taken with Ed Harris). 

Personally, I love the man and can’t get enough of his good cop/bad cop in "The Lego Movie," either.  Not too bad for a guy who is 63 years of age, huh?

Well, leave it to the brilliant folks over at Discover Ireland to tap into that particular set of skills for their latest marketing campaign to give The Emerald Isle a little more exposure.

Liam narrates a heartfelt hello and happy St. Patrick’s Day while some of the most beautiful scenery of Ireland goes by.  Discover Ireland has beautifully brought together images of the world going green and then seamlessly transitioned to the rolling green hills and ruggedly cliffed coasts coming together.

There are shots of celebrations, parades, concerts, the traditional pint of Guinness, and more.  Certainly this puts Ireland’s best foot forward, and what a wonderful way to do it.  Those skills that Liam has, only add to the whole moment.  The other countries will be going green for St. Patrick's Day, green with envy that is.
