Corona Extra Invites Consumers To 'Find Your Beach'

CHICAGO, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Corona Extra, the long-standing number one imported beer brand in the U.S., is expanding the Corona mindset to surprising places this fall with a new ad campaign that goes beyond the beach.

"White beaches, gentle waves, a guy and a girl relaxing seaside — these have long been symbols of the escape mindset associated with Corona," said Jim Sabia, executive vice president of marketing, Crown Imports.  "Our new 'Find Your Beach' ads encourage fans to find their beach, wherever it may be — expanding that Corona state of mind beyond the 'sun, sand and surf.'"

The debut TV spot, called "Moments," features a montage of scenes with people relaxing with their Corona Extras, but at fresh, unexpected places — from a mountain vista to a Big Sur cliff to a New York City rooftop.  The spot closes on a couple on the iconic Corona beach, with the new tagline "Find Your Beach."

"What we want 'Find Your Beach' to do is literally show that the beach is where you make it," said Marshall Ross, executive vice president/chief creative officer, Cramer-Krasselt, Corona's agency of record.  "We want to give literal, visual permission for people to take the Corona mindset with them.  Even to the ski slopes or the big city.  'Find Your Beach' is a kind of how-to guide for the Corona way."

Also unique to "Moments" is the soundtrack — the ad features an acoustic song called "The Secret Sun" by Grammy-winning songwriter, singer, guitarist and producer Jesse Harris.  Best known for his songwriting on Norah Jones' album Come Away With Me, Harris' lyrics perfectly reflect the Corona state of mind, unrestrained by time or pressures: Meet me by the sea again/Past the point the shoreline bends/Where the sand is soft and warm/And hangs upon your golden arm/And time won't move at all.  This exclusive song will be available in limited quantity on Corona's Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/corona), as well as for purchase on iTunes.

"Moments" will begin airing nationally on September 12 in the first week of NFL games on CBS, FOX and ESPN, and will additionally air on programming such as Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  Out-of-home executions will run in more than 25 markets, including New York; Los Angeles; Austin and Houston, Texas; Baltimore; Atlanta; Seattle and Denver.
