  • Tecate Light / “One Bold Night”

descarga (4)Tecate Light has released its latest chapter of its “Born Bold” campaign in the form of the short film, “One Bold Night.”  Delivered in four easy-to-watch 60-second episodes, the new films depict the iconic Tecate Light Black Eagle experiencing an epic night from gritty, basement boxing match to penthouse party, all shot from the point-of-view (POV) of a friend’s mobile phone.Tecate Light fans are invited to continue where the film left off by submitting photos of their boldest night out with friends. The best photos submitted through the brand’s Facebook and Twitter channels using #OneBoldNight will be transformed into branded social media posts, with consumers competing for the most “likes” and “shares.”  The winner will receive a bold party from Tecate Light for them and friends, which will be filmed, edited and released as the epic conclusion to the “One Bold Night” film.The effort was directed by Todd Bellanca and created with Saatchi & Saatchi NY.  The new film complements the brand’s on-going social engagement strategy to create culturally relevant content, delivered in bold new ways that resonate with their bi-cultural Hispanic audience. The effort is being pushed through the use of YouTube’s new Playlist Card platform for the debut – making Tecate Light the first Hispanic and alcohol beverage brand to use this innovative technology introduced earlier this year as an evolution to YouTube’s existing “annotations” feature.
