Live the Finer Life by Drinking Corona

Taco Bell wants you to live mas. Corona wants you to live mas fina. If the trend continues, we’re one year away from Walmart telling us to live mejor.

Corona’s Canadian rebranding comes from Toronto-based Zulu Alpha Kilo and its Quebec agency partner, TANK. Let’s tackle all the moving parts: an English campaign with a Spanglish slogan for a Mexican company created by a Canadian agency. If you ever needed proof of NAFTA, there you go.

The debut spot, which runs sixty seconds, clearly targets younger demographics of drinkers and asks them to live life without regret. Surf, protest deforestation, look at aurora borealis, etc. While you’re experiencing the etc., you should also drink Corona. It’s silly to associate Corona with “the finer life,” but the commercial is well done and effectively sentimental, according to the viewer response on Youtube. I’d have to agree, even if there are no beaches.

Mitsubishi Travels ‘Death Road’ So We Won’t Ever Have To

As our fear of heights gets worse with age, just watching images on the computer of Yungas Road–aka “Death Road”–in Bolivia makes one weak in the knees. But a few brave souls decided for whatever reason to test out the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport’s all-wheel drive system on what Inter-American Development bank apparently dubbed “the world’s most dangerous road” back in 1995. The automaker and agency 180 LA aren’t strangers to such crazy stunts, of course, as they just broke five Guinness world records in February for their 24-hour experiment on Canada’s frozen Ghost Lake.

This time around, the crew including production company Boxer and director Jordan Valenti (armed with a 360 cam) decided to head down to South America last month to take part in what’s being touted as the first commercial shot on Yungas, which is single-lane, lacks any guard rails and oh yeah, there’s that whole 1,800-foot cliff drop-off *shudder*. Well, fortunately it looks like they all lived to tell the tale. So what’s next gang, something involving the Burj Dubai? Credits after the jump.

180LA Helps Mitsubishi Break Five World Records in 24 Hours

Drawing inspiration from the world’s first online test drive, in which the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was awarded its first Guinness World Record for the longest distance driven by a vehicle operated online, 180LA took the automaker’s Outlander and Outlander Sport to Alberta Canada’s Ghost Lake to showcase the tech wares of said vehicles and break as many world records possible within 24 hours.

Driven by stuntman Garvin Cross, the SUV and CUV broke five world records: Greatest distance driven by a vehicle in reverse on snow in 30 seconds, shortest braking distance by a vehicle on ice, most vehicle figure eights on ice in two minutes, fastest vehicle slalom relay on ice and fastest driven square lap, which all in all dubbed Mitsubishi the most awarded family of all-wheel drive vehicles in its class, so the automaker claims.

Digital marketing includes homepage takeovers, online banners as well as a strong social media push all leading consumers to their website to find out more.
