Corona is a beer which represents all those moments in which you escape your daily routine. The new positioning Experience the Extraordinary reflects the brand’s optimism and its passion for bringing people together across the world at those special moments. The objective for online consisted in creating a concept that allowed users to create their own unique experiences.
To get the user to participate actively in an extraordinary moment: “the first virtual Loi Krathong”, created by Corona.
Users launched thousands of lanterns into the virtual sky to wish for good luck for New Year. On 31st of December 2009, these wishes invaded the most important websites of the country.
Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Under the “Experience the Extraordinary” concept, Corona positions itself alongside unique, distinctive experiences. The first virtual Loi Krathong was created to celebrate the arrival of 2010. Just as in this legendary Thai festival, hundreds of lanterns with good wishes are released into the night sky, on the web, users could also write down their wishes for the New Year. This initiative grew beyond recognition: wishes could be written for others as well as for oneself. These will be launched into cyberspace every full moon.
The Promo / PR Ad titled LANTERNS was done by JWT advertising agency for product: Corona Beer (brand: Corona) in Spain. It was released in the Dec 2009.
