That’s right, the legendary people at Corona have dropped this superb-looking bike on our doorstep, just days before Christmas. It’s deep blue (like the sea) paint job, brown leather seat and grips (that’ll age beautifully, just like your sun-soaked skin) are perfectly accompanied by a sweet coaster brake (for skids)… what more do you need?! Maybe a board under your arm, and an ice-cold Corona waiting for you on the horizon.
We won’t be giving it away just yet though, we’ll be holding off until the New Year to give it away to one lucky (18+) soul. That’ll give you plenty of time to think about why you deserve it, and to drop us a line with a story about ‘…where you’d rather be’ (on this bike). Email us, or comment below, with a few words about where this slick two wheeler will take you. While we don’t expect you to get as far as Mexico–well, maybe in your dreams–get creative and the most inventive, yet plausible, entry will win.
In case you missed anything:
We are giving away: A single speed cruiser with moustache handle bars, leather trim and blue body work courtesy of the kind folk at Corona. (It also comes with brakes, reflectors and a stand for those safety conscious readers and riders.)
Who can win it: NZ residents over 18 years of age – proof of age will be required if you are the lucky one
How do I go in the draw: Share a few words about where this bike would take you. Either post below or email us or comment on our Facebook page.
When: We’ll be drawing the winner on 24 Jan, 2013.
To get y’all inspired here’s a delicious video crafted especially by Taylor Steele (with Monster Children’s Chris Searl on stills) for Corona as part of their On Mexico Time from where you’d rather be campaign.
Corona Extra premieres new campaign…
ON MEXICO TIME from where you’d rather be
Celebrated surf filmmaker Taylor Steele and photographer Chris Searl created “On Mexico Time”, a fresh take on Corona’s successful From Where You’d Rather Be campaign. With their previous collaboration for Corona notching up well over a million views, they had set the bar high.
Filmed in Mexico over two weeks “On Mexico Time” took Steele, Searl and a handful of friends to all corners of Mexico, from Baja to the Carribean and Pacific coasts, surfing each amazing break along the way.
“I’m not going to lie, shooting Corona is one of the best jobs going around.
Drinking Coronas in Mexican beachside towns… the hardest thing is hitting focus” said Searl.
With Steele on directing duties and renowned photographer Searl on stills all they needed was a killer soundtrack…
Enter musician MT Warning who had worked with Steele previously, scoring the music for his latest feature film Here & Now.
During a stint at Corona’s other project of the moment, La Casa Artist Residency, MT Warning wrote and recorded an acoustic track called Sinking Sun. As it turned out, the chilled out tune was the perfect match for the visuals.
“La Casa is about fostering creativity. It’s about providing some time out from a busy schedule where artists can relax and hopefully be inspired. This track by MT Warning is the perfect example of what La Casa can generate and we’re stoked to be able to use it for On Mexico Time.” said Steele.
