Throughout the month of June, Sauza Tequila will travel to New York City, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Chicago, with a squad of sizzling hot firemen—replete with a shiny blue fire truck in honor of its Sauza Blue Tequila— evoking the spirit of the brand’s 2012 “Make It With a Fireman” campaign. The firemen will be ready to rescue passers-by with random acts of kindness and provide tips on how to make the most refreshing margarita. Television star Ali Fedotowsky will send the Sauza Tequila fire truck off in style in New York City on June 18, its first stop on the mobile tour.
“Given the success of ‘Make It With A Fireman,’ we thought hitting the road and bringing these sexy firefighters to Sauza fans would be the perfect way to bring the campaign to life,” says Vanessa Jenkins, Senior Director of Tequilas at Beam Inc. “Sauza Tequila is all about creating fun, memorable experiences, and what better way to put a little excitement into the summer season than by spending the day with a few smoking-hot men in uniform?”
The Sauza Tequila Regional Rescue Tour rolls out on the heels of Sauza’s wildly popular “Make It With A Fireman” campaign, in which a handsome fireman comes to the rescue—with an adorable beret-wearing kitten in tow—demonstrating how to make the perfect margarita. Since the campaign’s online debut in April, it has received more than three million views and has generated an impressive buzz and fan base within the blogosphere.
