Profile of the Tampico Beverages Piñata Bash’ Campaign

Below is a profile of the current Tampico Beverages Piñata Bash' Campaign. Read an interview with Tampico Beverages' VP of Marketing Marta Gerdes here.

Young (Hispanic) Adults

Content: Built on a theme of "irresistible fun" geared to appeal to Tampico's multi-ethnic young adult brand following, the campaign brings back a traditional Hispanic cultural icon -- the piñata -- in a cool new urban, contemporary and relevant way. A piñata is a colorful papier-mâché or other type of container that is decorated, filled with toys, candies and other goodies, and then broken open in celebration.

Participants may enter the sweepstakes by personalizing a digital piñata and sharing it with a friend who breaks the piñata, or by breaking a piñata that a friend has shared with them. Each combination of piñata "maker" and "breaker" represents one entry as a pair of contestants. People may enter as many times as they want, both as a "maker" or "breaker," but each entry must be different and submitted separately. Playing "Pinata Bash" is easy: From now until September 3, 2012, go to, click the sweepstakes promo, follow the instructions and go to town on a piñata. Prizes include: Grand Prize: each member of one winning "piñata maker/breaker" pair will receive one 2012 Fiat 500, each with an approximate retail value of $18,000 ($15,500 base cost plus up to $2500 in customization options selected by the grand prize winners, but subject to availability).

Agency: Roar Media (PR and Digital Media Buys). The campaign was developed by Roar Media along with Macias Advertising in Miami.
