Dr Pepper Snapple Group this week is launching “Vida23,” a multifaceted effort to attract young Hispanic consumers to its Dr Pepper beverage.
“Just like the unique 23 flavors in Dr Pepper, Vida23 is designed to give consumers more out of every day,” said Monica Morales, Dr Pepper brand manager for the Hispanic market, in a statement. “Hispanic young adults are living the best of both worlds: they’re bicultural and bilingual. Unlike previous generations, today’s young Latinos literally have one foot in each culture and Vida23 celebrates their way of life.”
TV and radio spots will kick off the campaign, featuring a song created specifically for the effort, called “La La La Life/Vida23.” The song was written and performed by Cucu Diamantes and Andres Levin, founder of the band Yerba Buena. The song is available for download at www.vida23.com, the Web site for the campaign. Here, consumers can also re-mix their own version of the song, and download ringtones as well.
Spanish language TV spots will air in Dallas, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Texas, and Sacramento, Calif., on Latino targeted Telemundo, Univision and MTV3. Radio airs in those markets, along with Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Fresno, Calif., El Paso and Austin Texas. The radio stations were chosen for their reach to 18- to 34-year-old bicultural and bilingual Hispanic consumers.

A Southwest regional tour, starting this week and featuring a mobile dance club, also supports. Consumers will be able to play games, dance and upload photographs when the mobile “Club23” visits Dallas, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Phoenix, Fresno and Stockton, Calif. Other efforts tying into the campaign include two sweepstakes: “Tu Ride23,” for a chance to win a new vehicle; and “Familia23” for a chance to win a family fiesta.
“The young Hispanic consumer drives a large share of volume for Dr Pepper,” said Morales. “The Hispanic population is already large and expected to reach 60 million by 2020, growing three times faster than non-Hispanics. This program is aimed to connect with . . . Latino consumers, and invite them to revel in life to the 23rd power.”
