Havas Chicago Goes Bilingual for DISH Network

By Patrick Coffee 

Yesterday marked something of a minor cultural milestone: the  first-ever Spanish language YouTube masthead in the U.S. went live and ran all day on Times Square’s NASDAQ tower screen. Havas Chicago handled creative for the campaign, which adopted World Cup themes to promote the DishLATINO brand to the general market with a little help from that classic duo, T and A.

There’s a multi-faceted promo page, but here’s the English-language version of the spot:

DISH reportedly worked with Havas on the creative and partnered with Google on YouTube promo strategies, reporting “above-average click through and video completion rates.”
