Entitled 'A Shot Worth Taking,' the campaign celebrates the tequila brand’s history as a shot-taking, boundary-pushing brand, inspiring fans to adopt this same mentality. It includes online video advertising, social media content, and OOH executions, as well as television advertising slated to launch in 2018.

The campaign features several real-life shot takers identified and selected through their own crowdfunding pages. Hornitos provides each individual with financial support, in exchange for the digital media spotlight, as they take their so-called shot in life.

The group includes aspiring Mexican-American hip-hop artist Zairah, who Hornitos moved from Alaska to Los Angeles so she can pursue her dreams. Other real-life spotlights are shined on drag show producer Marc Singer, Hollywood stuntman Kyle Williams, as well as aspiring denim fashion designers Phillip Landrum and Phil Lee. Sara Alize Cross, a former fashion industry professional who took her own “shot” by switching her career to filmmaking, directed the campaign, while the Community/La Comunidad created and produced the digital and social media campaign.
