‘The tagline is about mentally shifting gears,’ said CME-KHBB/Chicago co-creative director Marshall Ross. Ross worked with art director Dan Bryant to create the campaign.
TV ads, completely devoid of copy, feature a tropical beach scene and lend a sense of escaping the real world. In one, a hand casually reaches over and drops an empty Corona beer bottle into a office-type ‘out’ box. The hand then reaches into the ‘in’ box to retrieve a cold Corona. In another ad, a guy ignores his cellular phone. In a third, the guy and his female companion fly a kite.
Print ads feature a globe and bird’s eye view of North America. A Corona bottle is superimposed over the country of Mexico.
Corona, distributed by Barton Beers, Ltd., Chicago, in approximately half of the country, will advertise in 34 markets.
