Mike’s Hard Lemonade Honors One Millionth Fan with Temporary Rebrand

By Erik Oster Comment

As we mentioned back in April, Mike’s Hard Lemonade has decided to concentrate exclusively on digital advertising, also choosing to shop around for agencies on a project-to-project basis after parting ways with Grey last year. Chicago agency Tris3ct, which also led a recent 15th anniversary spot, worked with the brand to celebrate their one millionth Facebook fan.

To commemorate the milestone, Tris3ct and Mike’s Hard Lemonade developed a 24-hour rebrand to Paul’s in honor of the millionth fan. The brand marked the name change with updated Facebook and Twitter pages, and a revamped website. They also printed out a bunch of Paul’s swag, had a Paul’s cake made and surprised Paul at his place of work to celebrate. Of course, they also documented the whole thing, posting a 90-second video to YouTube and the brand’s Facebook page. You can catch the video above, which marks at least the third effort from the Chicago agency for the brand, starting with “Shandymatic” last summer.
