A television commercial for the Mexican beer Corona transformed the sleepy blue and white-washed village of Mykonos into a fiery blaze of pastels and color, never-before seen on the island. The shoot lasted two days and used more than 150 residents of the island.
Many of the white houses and buildings were painted in different colors of pastels— matching the colors of Mexico. The premise of the commercial is that Mykonos is magically transformed into Mexico when two bottle sod Corona beer are served to a couple at a traditional taverna.
The commercial was shot by Green Olive Films and Red Magma Media, for Corona’s global ad campaign.
