1800® Tequila, the world’s most awarded tequila brand, launches a new campaign that celebrates the best taste in tequila and in life.
The campaign is directed by filmmaker and photographer Ricky Saiz and features 10-time NBA All-Star and entrepreneur Carmelo Anthony and award-winning global Latin superstar Ozuna, who come together as the brand’s newest tastemakers.
The campaign consists of a collection of cinematic-style films directed by visual storyteller Ricky Saiz, who was previously at the helm of music videos for Beyoncé, including Beyoncé: Yoncé and The Carters: Apeshit. Each campaign storyline centres around the brand’s ultra-premium expression, 1800 Cristalino, as the catalyst that transforms everyday moments into tasteful next-level experiences across music, sports and art.
The first spot takes place in a barber shop starring global Latin superstar Ozuna. He patiently waits in a styling chair as his hairdresser pours him a glass of 1800 Cristalino. Capturing the attention of everyone in the salon, Ozuna spins around in his chair with a glass of 1800 Cristalino in hand and a grin on his face. The shop ambience immediately levels up to a party with customers and hairdressers raising a glass to celebrate the best in taste.
The second spot stars 10-time NBA All-Star and entrepreneur Carmelo Anthony, sitting courtside and enjoying a basketball game. Carmelo nods to the sideline waiter for a neat serving of the brand’s ultra-premium expression, 1800 Cristalino. The eye-catching crystal bottle draws the attention of the arena. As Carmelo reaches for a glass, his team makes the winning shot into a crystallized basketball hoop. He commemorates the victorious moment with a toast with friends around him.
“As the most awarded tequila in the world, 1800 Tequila is passionate about representing the best taste in tequila and in life,” says Lander Otegui, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Proximo Spirits. “Tequila is the fastest-growing spirits category in the U.S., and as the leader in super premium sales, we know our consumers are choosing 1800 because of our liquid superiority and our passion for meaningful collaboration with a range of cultural tastemakers. We toast to 72andSunny, our new creative agency of record, our collaborators Carmelo Anthony and Ozuna, and Ricky Saiz, our campaign director, for elevating the 1800 Cristalino experience for drinkers.”
