The Works Launches One Night In Mexico With Run DMC’s ‘It’s Like That’

Lovers of Mexican food are being urged to ‘Up your taco game’ with the launch of a contemporary range of taco meal kits from Goodman Fielder, accompanied by a campaign from The Works featuring Run-DMC’s classic hip hop track ‘It’s like that’. 

Google Trends data shows the boom in popularity of Mexican food with searches for tacos now ahead of traditional favourites spaghetti and roast chicken. The One Night in Mexico taco meal kits, which includes varieties such as Flame Grilled BBQ, Lime and Jalapeño, Mexican Spice and Smokey Chipotle, offers Australians a fresh new take on Mexican direct from the supermarket shelf.

The Works was awarded the launch campaign for One Night in Mexico by Goodman Fielder. Damian Pincus, founder and creative partner at The Works said: “Australians love of Mexican food is outpacing traditional family mealtime favourites and One Night in Mexico is a new alternative for those seeking a contemporary taste of central America. It’s a privilege to be given the opportunity by Goodman Fielder to launch this brand into market and this campaign encourages Aussies to up their taco game in modern and cliché-free way.”

Kinda Grange, general manager for Goodman Fielder grocery added: “We’re very proud to launch this Australian innovation into Mexican Foods. One Night In Mexico was created after seeing an opportunity to bring the exciting, fresh and delicious food experience found in modern Mexican restaurants today into the grocery store, and help make it easy for anyone to make and enjoy at home. We believe One Night In Mexico offers a great way to up your taco game, and enjoy a fresh new take on Mexican at home.”

The campaign includes a 30-second commercial with 15-second cut down, digital, social and shopper marketing. Goodman Fielder’s media agency, Slingshot, has struck an agreement to integrate the brand into the hit Network Ten show The Bachelorette featuring Sophie Monk.
