Describe the campaign/entry
Norte, Tucuman’s Number 1 beer, needed to increase its brand preference. And it wanted to do it through a promotion.
The Problem:
In general, every time a man wants to go to the bar for a beer with his friends, a girlfriend comes up with a different plan, like tickets to the theatre or dinner with her parents.
The Stategy:
A good deed is the only irrefutable excuse. That’s why we used it as a tool to help boyfriends go to the bar without having to hear a single complaint from their girlfriends.
The Solution:
The Best Excuse Ever. An initiative in which for every Norte beer boyfriends had at the bar, the brand allotted 1 minute of good deeds. And a Norte team was in charge of repairing schools, restoring monuments, improving parks and cleaning up lakes.

Describe how the campaign/entry was launched across each channel in the order of implementation
- TV
- Outdoor / Press
- Internet
- Ambient. The bottle tops were accumulated at the main bars of Mendoza.
- Meanwhile, throughout the city, the good deeds started.
- Viralization of the Case from the PR effect.
