On Thursday (13 May 13) Miller Genuine Draft will strap cases of hard seltzer to a rocket and send the trendy low-cal beverage hurtling into space. Beer fans can suggest the seltzer brand that most deserves to be propelled from the planet.
"Miller makes beer for people who love beer," says Sofia Colucci, vice president Miller Family of Brands. "Other brands, including some of our siblings, make other things, too. That's great. We launch beers, and we launch everything else into space."
Bianca Guimaraes, partner and executive creative director at Mischief @ No Fixed Address, said: "Every beer brand is launching a seltzer, so it only felt right to do the same. We spent a lot of time debating if we should bury seltzers, shoot them off into space or drop them into the mouth of an erupting volcano. But sending them into a black hole seemed to make the most sense."
"For years, Miller has been an expert in brewing – from Lite to High Life to MGD – and we've never changed or compromised our love of great beer," said Colucci. "Because we're a beer. Not a seltzer. In case we haven't made that clear yet."
