The image of this Carlsberg ad is a scene from the traditional Danish Bodega (pub) where two guys are having a game of Danish billiards. The scoreboard in the background has a Danish text that can be translated into: a well-placed ball. The text in the bottom of the poster says: HOF has the clean fresh taste of a lager (beer). 

Danish billiards or "Keglebillard", sometimes called Danish five-pin billiards, is the traditional cue sport of Denmark, and the game remains predominantly played in that country. It makes use of a 5 × 10 ft (1.5 × 3 m) six-pocket table, three billiard balls, and five pins (on the poster the pins are replaced by Carlsberg bottles), which are considerably larger than those used in the internationally standardized (originally Italian) game of five-pin billiards.

The aim of the game is to achieve a predetermined number of points in as few shots as possible. The game is played with one red ball and two white balls. In an inversion of the normal play in most three-ball games, the red ball is used as a cue ball by both players, with the whites as the object balls. There are two ways to score points. One is by knocking over one or more of the pins, for 2 points each, with a white object ball after hitting the white with the red cue ball (i.e. a combination ball-to-pin shot). The other is by making "red", that is to have the cue ball hit both object balls, which gives 4 points. It is a foul if the cue ball topples a pin. It is a foul if the cue ball leaves the table, whether by a pocket or over the edge. A white ball that leaves the table is just returned. The second consecutive shot where red is not made and no ball touches a cushion is a foul. The third consecutive shot where no pin falls is a foul. The only effect of a foul is that the shot counts 0, ending the player's turn at the table.

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
