The deadly Coronavirus might continue to claim victims around the world, but that has not stopped creative Mexicans for crafting their own t-shirts with the legend Ya me dio el (I have contracted the) Corona Virus, a different kind of disease that comes from… drinking too much Corona beer.
In a jab to “President” Donald Trump, Corona Beer this week launched a new video on its YouTube page, which basically makes a point this blogger has been hammering pretty much all her [adult] life: America is not a country. America is a continent… And a big one at that…
We are the belly button of this world… and its lungs
We are hot blooded, we are poetry, art, and chants…
We are constant revolution
We are 35 united states
Americanos somos todos…
… and so on
The spot concludes by urging fans to join Corona’s fan page to show their pride about being American, or something to that effect. WATCH:
I hate Cinco de Mayo in the U.S., not so much because it’s a reminder of how clueless people are about Mexican history, but because it is also the time to market some of the stupidest, senseless food & drink concoctions of all times.
Well, actually I think Bud Light’s Lime-A-Rita and Straw-Ber-Rita are kind of OK. The name is cute and hopefully the mix will give a little taste to such a tasteless beer. But Corona’s “CoronaRita” wins the prize of the silliest, most senseless concoction (and moniker) ever.
If you are going to get creative with your advertisement, and use the top of two beer bottles as substitute for the letter “h,” you might as well want to spell check your copy, so that winners will “receive” prizes and giveaways, instead of “receive” prizes and giveaways.
