Patrón Tequila tapped famed director Guillermo del Toro for a nearly three-minute video short promoting their collaborative tequila product released in July, according to a press release provided to Marketing Dive.
The video has a cinematic quality and features del Toro’s classic gothic style. In it, he sits at a candle-lit desk narrating the process of making tequila with comparisons to spiritual rebirths, a common theme he invokes in his directorial work.
