Today, BACARDÍ® rum unveils a fresh, new take on the brand with a 30-second TV spot, experiential House Party campaign and comprehensive digital, mobile and partnership strategy designed to connect with millennials on their terms, in their world, in their way. This is the first campaign launch since BACARDÍ revamped its advertising and marketing business four months ago and reflects the brand’s desire to dominate the category once again.
The TV spot, entitled “The Truck,” is an authentic take on a Millennial’s world, capturing the energy of their life. It features a group of friends letting nothing get in the way of hosting an amazing house party. Shot with a hand-held camera, the viewer is drawn in to feel like they are part of the story, experiencing the energy of this cross-country journey. It’s styled similar to a movie trailer, giving the audience a sneak peek into the brand world and house party occasion, then leaving you wanting to see and learn more. The ad represents the first work from BBDO and OMD, the new global creative agency partners for the Bacardi portfolio of brands.
The ad includes the tagline: “There’s Nothing in the Way,” a tribute to the brand’s history and irrepressible spirit, as well as a shout out to those who are busting through and overcoming obstacles in the real world.

In its 150th anniversary yearlong celebration, Bacardi celebrates its tremendous success as the world’s largest privately-held spirits company and the incredible drive and perseverance it took to get there following the illegal confiscation of its assets in Cuba on October 15, 1960 – 52 years ago. While that event was an extraordinary event in the Company’s history after nearly 100 years of being in Cuba, it became a critical turning point to propel the family-owned Company and its namesake BACARDÍ® rum brand to take on a greater international profile. This turned BACARDÍ into the globally recognized brand it is today. In fact, within 20 years following the loss of the Company’s assets in Cuba, BACARDÍ rum became the number-one premium distilled spirits brand in the United States. Less than a year after that, it was the number-one selling spirit brand in the world.
