  • McDonald’s 

McDonald’s and fútbol have something in common: they unite people. The World Cup campaign series is a story of people from all walks of life uniting over breakfast and the world cup at McDonald’s. (Yes, being a World Cup sponsor, the restaurants can broadcast the games at the discretion of the individual locations.)The bilingual TV spots consist of three executions in which hardcore and novice soccer fans come together to enjoy the 2018 FIFA World Cup every morning over McDonald’s breakfast. As the tournament progresses our novice fans learn more about The Beautiful Game and even some Spanish along the way. World Cup commercials are seen very frequently over a one month period, so we created a series of spots that told a bigger story as a whole and rewarded the viewer with fresh executions throughout the tournament.The campaign will air in both Telemundo and Fox Sports throughout the whole month of the World Cup (6/14-7/15), so far only the first of the three executions has aired. See them all here titled, “Opening Round”, “Quarterfinals”, “Finals”.

Hyundai and Volkswagen Target Hispanics during FIFA World Cup

There’s more evidence that marketers are waking up to the economic and social power of Hispanic consumers, with car companies making plays at FIFA World Cup starting tonight in Brazil. Meanwhile, is the whole Hispanic thing in danger of fading away? Both global automakers plan advertising blitzes during the FIFA World Cup, according to Automotive News. VW will run commercials in English and Spanish on ESPN and Univision, while Hyundai has made its largest-ever Spanish-language TV buy to reach young Hispanic males, while promoting the hashtag #BecauseFutbol. In the U.S., football may be bigger than futbol, but the month-long World Cup actually garners Super Bowl-sized audiences over its entire run. And Hispanics spent $39 billion on new-car purchases last year.

T-Mobile to Put Univision in Your Pocket

Can you say “captive audience?” Univision and T-Mobile made a bold play to keep Hispanics in their pockets — or, really, it’s the other way around. Univision Mobile is a wireless service that will offer subscribers a mobile portal into content, including special exclusive offerings. Subscribers also get 100 minutes of calls to Latin America. They specifically target Hispanic customers with families overseas, and all include 100 minutes to call a mobile or landline number from the US to Mexico and Latin America. It’s a win for consumers with family or friends south of the border, and the phone and service are one non-stop ad for Univision.

Hollywood Hunting Hispanics

That’s per a panel of movie industry execs appearing as part of the Produced By conference in Los Angeles last week. The head of the National Association of Theater Owners said Hispanics are their most important consumer, and Univision’s Peter Filaci backed that up by saying that Hispanics represent 17.5 percent of the population, but contribute 19 percent of U.S. box office revenue.

And that’s with a dearth of movies featuring Hispanics. Think how much money they could make with a few casting tweaks. Said writer Gwynne Watkins, “Hispanic audiences have turned out en masse for movies that feature the rare Latino star or director. If the movies started to better reflect their audience, just imagine the possibilities.”

Are Hispanics Fading Away?

A flurry of soul-searching began last week after a study showed that 10 million Americans changed their race on U.S. Census forms between 2000 and 2010. The largest number of those who changed their race/ethnicity category were 2.5 million Americans who said they were Hispanic and “some other race” in 2000, but a decade later, told the census they were Hispanic and white — although they were balanced somewhat by 1.3 million others who hopped onto the Hispanic bandwagon. So … why?

A major factor is the pressure — and the growing opportunity — to blend into society and to identify with the majority, writes Mary Sanchez in the Kansas City Star. Click through to read her thoughtful analysis of race and ethnicity in America.

But Nate Cohn at the New York Times notes that this could be not so much an identity crisis as simply the result of a change in wording on census forms.

At least one thing is clear, at least: Folks in the U.S. prefer “Hispanic” to “Latino.” All this matters — a lot — to anyone trying to get a message to this desirable demo.

Dunk On

Last week, Dunkin Donuts launched a new Twitter handle, @DunkinLatino. According to Latin Times, the franchise will do more than just pump out promos in Spanish; it may create new flavors that are “on trend in the Hispanic community.” Dulce!

 At the end of 2011, retail and coffee house chain  Dunkin’ Donuts  had  10,083 stores worldwide, including 7,015 franchised restaurants in the United States. Dunkin’ Donuts has a substantial marketing program targeting the Hispanic demographic. Portada talked to Xavier Turpin, Director of Multicultural Marketing for Dunkin’ Donuts.

Dunkin' DonutsPortada: Is Dunkin’ Donuts preparing a 2013 “Que estas tomando?” campaign? If so, what are the objectives and the media which it is going to use?
Xavier Turpin, Multicultural Marketing Director, Dunkin’ Donuts.:”Yes, we will be continuing the “Que estas tomando?” campaign in 2013. The objective of the campaign is to highlight Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee and beverage excellence, and celebrate the loyalty our guests have to Dunkin’. The campaign will have coverage on both Spanish-speaking television and radio.”

What approach does Dunkin’ Donuts have to target Spanish-dominant Hispanics? What approach does it have to target English dominant Hispanics?
X.T.: “Our communications in Spanish are meant to be extension of the English language conversation with our guests. We aim to have continuous, consistent and comprehensive communication with all of our guests across languages. However, we do tailor our programming with the understanding that certain products or talent may resonate more with particular communities.”
We have introduced menu items featuring bold and exotic flavors inspired by the Latin culture in select markets, such as the Cuban Flatbread Sandwich and Café Con Leche in South Florida.


Does Dunkin’ approach doughnut sales marketing in a different way than it does coffee sales marketing?

X.T.: “Dunkin’ Donuts takes a 360-degree approach to marketing, keeping the consumer and how best to serve him or her in mind at each step of the way.”


How do you work with franchisees, particularly Hispanic franchisees in order to market your products to the Hispanic community?

X.T.:“We work closely with all of our franchisees to respond to the needs of our guests, and in some cases will tailor our menu items to resonate with particular cultures and communities.  For instance, in recent years, Dunkin’ Donuts has introduced both limited time offerings and permanent menu items featuring bold and exotic flavors inspired by the Latin culture in select markets, such as the Cuban Flatbread Sandwich and Café Con Leche in South Florida, Huevos Rancheros Wake-Up Wrap in Phoenix and Latin-inspired donuts in New York.”


We understand Zubi is your Hispanic agency, but who does Hispanic Media Buying and Planning?

X.T.: “Hill Holliday is our general market advertising agency and handles media planning and buying.”


Dunkin’ is present in several Latin American countries, including Mexico, Chile and Colombia. What is your strategy in those countries. Are insights in those countries, particularly Mexico, leveraged also to reach Hispanics in the U.S.?

X.T. “Dunkin’ Donuts currently has more than 300 restaurants across Latin America and the Caribbean, including more than 200 locations in Chile, Colombia and Peru, as well as locations in countries including Aruba, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama and Puerto Rico.  At every Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant worldwide, our priority is serving guests food and beverages that are fast, fresh and convenient. In each country we bring many of our long-time favorite menu items, along with offerings that guests in the region may be more familiar with.”


Note: Dunkin’ Donuts does not currently have a presence in Mexico. Baskin-Robbins does have 27 restaurants there.
