4 February 2014

For the second year in a row, the brand of Compañía Cervecera will write a song for the “carnestolendas” party and it will launch a limited edition of bottles and cans

- With the slogan ‘De Carnaval, aquí sabemos’ , (Here we know about the carnival) the campaign will feature Doctor Purpurino, who will diagnose the common symptoms of the carnival spirit

- For the first time, the new aluminium bottles will use thermochromatic ink to indicate the best consumption temperature

Santa Cruz de Tenerife, January 31st, 2014 - Dorada, official sponsor of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival, will collaborate again for the most popular and international holiday in Canarias with the launching of an original campaign featuring Doctor Purpurino.

With the slogan De Carnaval, aquí sabemos, Dorada has developed a campaign carried out exclusively by artists from Canarias featuring Doctor Purpurino, who will be in charge of diagnosing the symptoms of the carnival spirit, which possesses the people from Canarias, and he will also offer a cure based on the amusement and the enjoyment of the party.

In this case, the comedians López, Víctor Hubara and Carlos Pedrós, the theatrical quarter Abubukaka, Alejandro Rod, Oliver Escobar and Adrián Rosales, among others, have joined Dorada. They will also be joined by local musicians who will write a song for the carnival. Also, the agency and the production company are local.

Like in previous years, Dorada will join the Carnival with the launching next week of a limited edition of 224,000 aluminium bottles and 607,000 cans decorated with designs inspired by the Carnival. These designs will represent the symptoms diagnosed by Doctor Purpurino, like Compulsive Friendship, Contagious Laughs and Infectious Dancing. With this last design, Dorada  gives a nod to the Indianos de La Palma, as in previous editions.

The new designs incorporate important innovations, like the use of thermochromatic ink in the aluminium bottles, allowing the customer to know the best temperature for consumption.

This is the first time Compañía Cervecera de Canarias has included thermochromatic ink in its aluminium bottles, an innovative element previously introduced in bottles of other brands manufactured by the company.

On the other hand, this year the cans will have the three designs portrayed in the aluminium bottles.

Other events

To celebrate the launching of the new bottles and cans, Dorada is planning to carry out a contest via mobile phone that can be accessed through the QR codes of the Dorada containers.

The aforementioned contest, which will end on February 27th, will give the public the possibility of unlocking the symptoms gathered in the Dorada mobile microsite and also access direct prizes like a drawing for a trip to the Los Indianos Carnival.

Dorada will also be present in the celebrations of the Day Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the Los Indianos Carnival in Santa Cruz de La Palma with different events.
