  1. 1. American Latinos Online A Lifestyle Profile for Wing Latino Captain Morgan Pitch 2006
  2. 2. Project overview Objective: Grey’s Wing Latino Hispanic was looking for lifestyle insights of young adult American Latinos who “lived” online to develop a strategy for a new business pitch on Diageo’s Captain Morgan Spiced Rum brand. Problem: Where is this Hispanic online community? Do you remember what life was like before Facebook? Or at least where communities came together? Solution: We’ll create the community. We developed the idea of “creating” a Hispanic reality show, and to “cast” for show “participants” - who were to become our study respondents. Execution: Very simple - a “casting call” post on Craigslist across 25 US markets. Results 1)  200 personal diaries 2)  Wing Latino was awarded Captain Morgan US Hispanic Advertising account, along with other Diageo brands: Smirnoff, Johnnie Walker, Crown Royal and Jose Cuervo.
  3. 3. “The Casting Call” West London Garcia production company in New York is developing a national reality television show on America’s REAL, young, bilingual Hispanic-American men - ages 21-29. We need you to provide name, photo, and age and please answer the following basic questions for us to follow up on. It’ll only take two minutes, and it’ll help us find the right people for the show. Give it a shot – you never know. What do you do (job/school, etc)? And what do you want to do? Describe your current nightlife – be honest, it’s all good. Give us a party story or two – Tell us how you hang and who you hang with. Give us the ‘all access’ night of your life. Describe your fashion style. If you win a $1000 gift certificate to spend on clothes, how and where would you spend it? What kind of car do you drive? If you won a car of your choice in the lottery – what would it be and why? What kind of music do you listen to? What do you think are some developing trends or artists in music? Can you briefly tell us about your lovelife? How about your lovelife goals? Do not give real names, but feel free to be as specific as you would like about this area of your life. Details tell us more about you. What's your definition of a 'legend' and why? Can you give us an example? What do you have to do to become a legend? If you have one more minute, tell us why you'd be good for a reality show. Don’t forget to tell us what city you live in.
