Bacardi's First Person Viewpoint Zombie Cocktail Film Will Get You Thirsty for Nightmares

Bacardi's First Person Viewpoint Zombie Cocktail Film Will Get You Thirsty for Nightmares

Halloween costume and party planning has already begun, and BACARDÍ is packing a punch with its latest creative campaign full of frights and delights.

All summer, BACARDÍ celebrated its campaign, “Do What Moves You,” but come Halloween, they’ll make people move in a different way: making them jump out of their seats with a spooky new Halloween cocktail film reminiscent of old school horror flicks.

More than your top-down recipe video, BACARDÍ’s Halloween cocktail film draws inspiration from horror classics like The ShiningThe RingSaw and Psycho – so viewers can really get in spirit as they mix up libations fit for the occasion.

The film transports viewers into a first-person POV of someone inserting a mysterious video tape (aptly marked with the brand’s bat logo) that plays instructions for the creepy BACARDÍ Zombie cocktail using jarring, horror-inspired props and camera techniques. The tension really escalates when the character from the tape suddenly appears in the living room with the viewer, creating a thriller within a thriller. A very delicious, very haunted Halloween cocktail waits on the other side for viewers who dare to watch the full video.
