In 2016's Pride Day in Brazil, Skol made an unexpected move of releasing the film Road, a celebration of diversity. In this film, people who were never represented in a commercial in Brazil, the LGBTQ community, finally gained the spotlights and it was the first step into the brand's new positioning that aim’s diversity. Since the movie was released several other brands started focusing on the LGBTQ community as well.
“With a poetic analogy that the path to equality is long, but it's possible to make it easier, Skol raises the flag of respect and invites consumers to also declare their support.”
My point of view: This ad was one of the first ads in Brazil to talk about LGBTQ+ causes. Definetelly the first beer ad. We were very lucky that the client hold our hands and walk this path with us. It was a huge change for the brand and also for the advertisement industry in Brazil.
