Top Spot of the Week: Director Wayne McClammy, Droga5 Generate "Hit Single" For Dos Equis
In its latest campaign out of Droga5 New York, Dos Equis is bringing its “interesante” point of view to all the stuff that makes summer great, from weddings to pool parties to ‘80s night at the local bar.
On the latter front, Wayne McClammy of Hungry Man directed “Hit Single.” In this spot, a loving tribute to timeless summer jams and 1980s’ MTV Spring Break live performances, Bonnie Tyler’s 1983 hit single “Total Eclipse of the Heart” is transformed into a ballad about the trials and tribulations of ordering Dos Equis and appetizers at a crowded bar--all to encourage drinkers to make every moment interesante.
