A Spanish language Tecate beer radio ad dubbed Disclaimer by Adrenalina, the ad producer, is noteworthy because of its comic take on the disclaimer sections found in many ads. The ad, which explains why wimpy men who lack character should avoid drinking Tecate, was recently recognized with a silver trophy at the El Ojo de Iberoamérica Festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In a rapid-fire format, the ad indicates that Tecate discourages wimpy men from consuming the Mexican beer. The ad points out that listeners who own dogs named Puchi, Tinkerbell or Princess, or call a girlfriend Baby or Little Smurfette haven’t got what it takes to enjoy Tecate. The beer promoters set out to reaffirm Tecate’s image targeting Mexican men living in the United States who favor the brand.
The Disclaimer Tecate beer radio ad was recorded at the end of January 2009 in Miami and New York at a dual studio recording session at RedCar, Miami with Paco Olavarrieta, in-house voiceover talent and chief creative officer, for the disclaimer portion of the spot; and at Bond, New York with Mexican actor Marco Treviño.
The Adrenalina team for the 2009 Tecate Disclaimer radio spot included Manuel Wernicky, president, chief ideas officer and managing partner; Paco Olavarrieta, chief creative officer and managing partner; Ivar Rodríguez, associate creative director; Daniel Roversi, agency producer; and Yonathan Bendesky, brand leadership.
The ad has been airing via national and regional Spanish-language networks Univision Radio, ESPN Deportes Radio and Lieberman Media since April 2009. According to an agency spokesperson, Adrenalina presented the spot to consumers in research conducted this year and the Disclaimer ad received the most laughs, with consumers reporting the highest recall for the spot and saying that the spot was most memorable for it’s humorous message and use of colloquial phrases.
“El Ojo is further recognition that our team’s creative work resonates among our colleagues in the global advertising community,” said Wernicky.
Adrenalina, the lead agency for Tecate and Tecate Light, recently embarked on its third consecutive advertising and marketing programs for the brands’ distributor, Heineken USA via Cervecería Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma (CCM) of Monterrey, Mexico. New creative for both brands is expected to roll out in early 2010.
