As reported in Business Wire, DISH Network and DishLATINO will become the first US-based provider to sign an endorsement backing deal ith Mexican actor, director and all around star Eugenio Derbez.Â
â€œEugenio is an ideal match for the DishLATINO brand,â€ said Alfredo Rodriguez, vice president of DishLATINO. â€œHe has an authentic energy and a relatable nature unlike anyone else â€“ and in many ways is the embodiment of our brand positioning. He has worked tirelessly to get where he is, finding success in both English and Spanish, and we think this is going to resonate across the Hispanic community.â€
The storyline of the new series of television commercials centers on Derbezâ€™s journey to America. Known for a depth of characters and humorous takes on everyday life, Derbez combines his comedic appeal with the portrayal of his recent, real-life move from Mexico to Los Angeles, starting with the first commercial called â€œAeropuerto.â€ In an exclusive online spot, Derbez uses his trademark satire style in â€œEl Split Epico,â€ a spoof of the viral truck commercial of a high-speed balancing act.
â€œI hope that all Latinos will see a little bit of themselves and their experiences in my work with DishLATINO,â€ Derbez said. â€œI am eager to build a life for my wife and new baby here in the United States but itâ€™s so important we remain in touch with where we came from. I remain a proud Mexican and DishLATINO will help keep that connection strong.â€
Rodriguez added that, as the campaign evolves, Derbez will advocate in his own unique way the need for multigenerational Hispanic households to maintain a connection with their culture as they also embrace their new realities. Customers and fans will be encouraged to use #SiempreLatino on Twitter to share their experiences and further engage with Derbez and the new advertising spots.
Derbez will interact with the programming and technology that has made DishLATINO the leading Hispanic pay-TV provider in the United States. He will apply this experience by also providing creative input and direction to the messaging of ongoing efforts. Throughout the fall and early 2015, DishLATINO will roll out ads portraying Derbez in vignettes of his new life in America.
