Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The legal restrictions for advertising alcohol in Switzerland are immense. By playing with the medium the restrictions can be bypassed in a creative way.
BACARDI Mojito is the first ready-to-serve Mojito in Switzerland: it contains rum, mint and lime in the proper proportions. In short: BACARDI Mojito is like freshly mixed. And in order to reach our young target group, we did exactly the same with popular songs.

Creative Execution
In cooperation with a hip radio station we launched a show called “Mash-up”. The concept: two hits are put together in a surprising way. For example, “I’m a Believer” by the Monkees and “The Trooper” by Iron Maiden.

Results and Effectiveness
Two months after the start of the campaign, BACARDI Mojito already held 44% of the market share for ready-to-serve drinks, and 27% of 18-29 year-olds in Switzerland had bought the product at least once.
