Pizza Patrón’s Spicy New Promo Touts Tears, Testosterone and Romance

posted on February 11th 2015 /

DALLAS – Feb. 11, 2015 – Pizza Patrón today announced its ‘add jalapeños’ campaign, LLORAR Y LLORAR, named after a famous song sung by perhaps the greatest living singer in Mexico, Vicente Fernandez. It translates to ‘Cry and Cry Again.’

 

The campaign is centered upon adding jalapeños to one’s pizza for just 99¢. According to a recent scientific study, that action may contribute to some interesting physiological effects. In 2014, Time Magazine published an article about a French study titled Some Like It Hot, that showed men who love spicy food had higher testosterone levels and consequently better sexual performance. As a tribute to those findings, Pizza Patron’s campaign to add jalapeños to any pizza starts on Valentine’s Day.

 

“Pizza Patrón already goes through a lot of jalapeños each week,” said Andrew Gamm, brand director for Pizza Patrón. “Even so, we have dedicated a significant portion of our store lobbies to display the series of campaign posters featuring very colloquial headlines designed to heighten customer awareness of our ‘add jalapeños’ option.”

 

The dramatic point of purchase posters feature men and women crying and the headlines ask ‘Are you crying because’ … they cancelled your favorite novella, it was terrible call on the field, your girlfriend caught you on Snapchat –or– because you added jalapeños to your pizza.

 

The Valentines Day timing, combined with the famous song and the results of the French study make this promotion a lot of fun for everyone,” said Gamm.
