Andes Beer: Teletransporter


Many beer brands speak to men in a shared tone showing to them that they really understand their needs. Yet, up to know, all intentions where express by a message without and action plan. Andes, the leader beer in the Andina Region of Argentina, presents: Andes Beer: Teletransporter – a revolutionary invention capable of doing something almost impossible: men can now go to a bar and share an Andes beer with friends without having any problems with their girlfriends. Andes Teletransporter Booths have been installed at the main bars of Mendoza, Argentina. Einstein mentioned that teletransportation was impossible since objects could not conduct faster than light. Einstein was wrong!

Legal Notice: Teleportation does not cause any physical non psychological damages. It helps and encourages long lasting couples and friendships. To lie is a sin, teleport is not!

"Why lie if you can teleport?" You ARE lying.

I know the beer industry, and it's a hard category to distinguish yourself in, because let's face it - most beer are pretty much the same, BUT you have to take a stand on where you sit within the market.

I'll list beers that are internationally known...
Stella Artois is the unattainable, the precious beer that you would do anything to protect.
Heineken is the club beer - about high fashion and style.
Bud is irreverent and fun 80% of the time and talks of craftmanship the other 20%
Corona Extra is about a relaxed attitude, sharing special moments with friends.
Bud Light and Coors Light are about the party lifestyle.

This? Apparently it's about lying to your girlfriend/wife and nothing else. If that's cool with them, then hey - I guess that's their angle. And if all their other advertising is about that, then they've clearly stated where they stand in the market. If their other ads aren't, then they're struggling to find what they're about.

It's a great concept, and well executed, but it just doesn't sit right - and I'd wonder if the $ invested was worth the return.

I totally disagree. It's called comic hyperbole. Bud built their incredible success on the back of it, and in my opinion Bud is probably kicking themselves that they didn't think of this idea first. Men will see this concept, and think, 'That's hilarious. Andes Beer understands how I think'.

Increased market share and return on investment? - you betcha.

So what? It's all about LYING and it has nothing to do with this that "many people thinks this way".
Promising to the people, that their relationships will be better, even if men will (in better way) lie to their girlfriends is a LIE itself.
It appears as a good insight, but
EARNING MONEY using LIES and encouraging people to LIE is abominable for me.

People may like it, but it doesn't change negative factors of it.

No, no, no. You don´t know the product. I´m from Mendoza, Argentina. Here, Andes is the beer of the fun, the friends moments. That´s why all this brilliant campaign was very successful in all country.

You're blowing this out of proportion. Probably coz you're not the target (dunno) and most definitely cause you're not from the country/region. You don't share the same idiosyncrasy, the same insights and the same codes.

Andes is essentially about relationships. With friends and with girlfriends, it's about winning at the clubs with the ladies, but also having fun with your buds. It's about the classic (and I thought it was universal, apparently not) struggle of keeping balance between your girl and your friends. Of course in an exaggerated humorous tone. It's something man can relate too. And if you watched the commercials closely it's not about cheating or hurting people with your's about friendship and relationships, it's fun.

It's the typical male camaraderie where your friends drive you crazy when you blow the off for your girl, and the other way around. It's pretty common and universal.

I repeat maybe you're not the target, or maybe this doesn't work on other countries. But here, it works perfectly. Is insightful and very well executed. As many of their campaigns.

Sometimes people deserved to be lied to. A grown up is legally entitled to drink anytime with friends, and he/she doesn't have to make up excuses to anyone.

The idea is so brilliant. Very well use of the environment. And very much fun.

jajajajajaja this people talking about moral, lying and cheating are definitely not publicists, and all girls... so don't forget... you are not the target of this add... so, of course you wouldn't understand it and laugh about it...
lejos la mejor acción publicitaria en años...

Girls, just go out. Tell your boyfriends you go out. This invention is hilarious! Good for you guys. You really do need time with your friends. This is misleading though. It might not be true that there would be less broken up couples. People who disagree with this ad, have their rights to their opinion and the creators and users of this teleporter know it's purpose.

And of course the target market for this ad would be Laughing their beers out their noses but let the boys have some fun and the beer company amass profit. That's all they want. Not sure that's all they'll get.
