  • Why I like it: I love manifesto advertising, a great many of my favorite ads ever are manifestos. Many of us may look at this beer ad and think “It’s too generic. It doesn’t say anything about the product. It doesn’t give you a reason to choose it versus the competition. It’s a bunch of cliches that don’t really connect with the beer, etc.”. But I really believe 22 year old guys and girls in Paraguay (the target of this ad) will look at it and say “hell yeah!” A manifesto is a statement of belief by a brand, and this can be so powerful because, when you’re in a commoditized category like beer, beliefs are infinitely more important than functional benefits. Trust me, for a 22 year old, beer is basically beer. It’s all pretty much the same. Nobody cares about your hops, or your brewing process, or even your refreshing quality. But if you’re talking to the heart, if you’re talking at a deeper level, if you’re saying something that others aren’t…and you mange to connect?…this will make a huge difference.
