Describe the objective of the promotion.
Distribuidora Marte launched Red Stripe in Guatemala on a very small scale. With no advertising budget and only this promotion we needed to give the beer a wise brand character and promote the trial.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
Due to the small-scale launch, Red Stripe became a great beer hard to find. Knowing that, your last Red Stripe should be kept safe and away from your friends, but ready for you when more needed.

With every six-pack came for free a 'last Beer Saver': A fake radish and beetroot organic soy juice carton with no base. This 'Last Beer Saver' was designed to cover your last Red Stripe in the fridge camouflaging it into something your friends would never drink.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
With no budget for advertising a secret on how to save your very last and hard to get beer not only gave Red Stripe a witty Brand Character, it also positioned the product as a beer so good that is worth protecting.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
•One month promotion sold out in 1 week (3,000 6-packs)
•As much as we tried to keep the secret, it finally came out becoming a Trending Topic in Guatemala's Tweeter
• But the most important result was definitely the thousands 'Last Red Stripes' saved!
