Given the current state of the economy, many Puerto Ricans have left the island to seek better opportunities in the United States. Those Puerto Ricans who have family on the island, sometimes don’t have the opportunity to return home for important dates due to lack of resources. We wanted to make it economically possible to make these encounters happen.
Storytelling is a powerful tool for content and we wanted to take advantage of it, therefore, we created a story told from the point of view of a father’s story and his desire to see his children, so that potential participants to imagine themselves surprising their parents, share content and participate in the promo.
To achieve greater visibility and impact we targeted messages in Puerto Rico and the US cities with the highest density of Puerto Ricans: Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and New York.
The main message was delivered in a video that told the real-life story of Willy, a father who had not seen his children together in a long time. Banco Popular made his dream come true on Father’s Day, gathering them all to celebrate.
To give more emotion to the video, we recorded the moment he believes to be in a video call with their children, when in fact they were hiding in his home preparing to give him the surprise of his life. This was the teaser that preceded the promotion.
