So much for the bad blood between this blogger (i.e. yours truly) and Hispanic Heritage Month. Goya has launched a new campaign which is actually a fun way to show America what I HAVE BEEN SAYING, like, FOREVER: That not all Latinos are fond of fútbol, abuelas or conservative values.
The following spot, crafted by Dallas-based Dieste, kicks off with a hilarious take on a Latin stereotype that is way too common in this country:
[NARRATOR’S VOICE] They say if you know one Latino, you know all Latinos: We only think of fútbol and nothing but fútbol.
Pan out to a scene where dad & kid are having breakfast (¿huevos rancheros?) and kid blurts out: “Dad, I want to play hockey.”
But perhaps my favorite part is around the subject of language, where you can get away by saying, well, they all speak Spanish… REALLY? Think again:
Frijoles > Habichuelas > Porotos > Judías*
*Yes, judías. Go Google it or something…
Our client GOYA celebrates Latin diversity with their new campaign: Ode to a Mix. Let’s celebrate our heritage with unique flavors. If it’s Goya… it has to be good! pic.twitter.com/B8MuA0bj7a
