Malibu Rums Makes a Statement With its Pink-Themed Marketing Campaign and Cocktail Can Design

Are you tired of boring marketing campaigns and product design?

You should. Without a proper marketing plan, things can get ordinary – and it’s nearly impossible to stand out in today’s marketing world without any real excitement in your marketing campaigns.

You help make bold statements and stir excitement with your campaign, we’ll look at Malibu’s Pink-Themed Marketing Campaign.

So, what is this campaign about?

Imagine wearing pink on a Wednesday and getting a FREE Malibu Strawberry Daiquiri! That’s what’s happening! Malibu teamed up with “Mean Girls” to celebrate pink, confidence, and Wednesdays. Customers are to show up pink at the cinema, sip a delicious cocktail, and possibly win cool prizes.

What Makes this Campaign Unique?

The campaign has generated so much buzz in the marketing space. So we’re dishing out 5 reasons why this is so:

1. Wednesdays Just Got Pinker

Wednesdays have become even more amazing. Malibu is turning Wednesdays into a pink paradise, in a creative adoption of the famous quote, “On Wednesday we wear pink” from the classic Mean Girls movie. In this campaign, moviegoers show up to the cinema rocking any shade of pink, and bam! They receive a free can of Malimbu delicious Strawberry Daiquiri. This strategy is a fun and interactive way to engage the audience.

2. A Blend of Pop Culture and Cocktails

Liam Murphy, brand director at Pernod Ricard UK, aptly describes the collaboration as more than just cocktails–it’s a statement. By aligning with the pop culture phenomenon of Mean Girls, Malibu creates a unique connection with consumers. The campaign not only offers an extraordinary experience, it also invites moviegoers to be part of something historic.

3. Making Fetch Happen at the Premiere

Being a key partner for the exclusive gala-night premiere of the Mean Girls film adds a touch of glamour to Malibu’s campaign. The association with the premiere at the Ham Yard Hotel, London, not only amplifies brand visibility but also positions Malibu as an authority in the world of entertainment partnerships.

4. Free Pink Delights at Showcase Cinemas

The strategic choice of Showcase Cinemas as the venue for the free ready-to-drink offer ensures that the campaign reaches a wide audience. By providing consumers with a tangible and delicious reward for their pink attire, Malibu creates a memorable experience that transcends the cinema screen.

5. Digital Engagement and Exclusive Content

In addition to the cinema campaign, Malimbu extends its campaign online. The brand grows its online visibility by giving away Mean Girls-related prizes and sharing exclusive cocktail recipes. Also, the playlists on their websites amplify the brand’s digital footprint. This move engages consumers post-cinema and also creates an online community around the collaboration.


Malibu’s pink-themed campaign stands out for its creativity, interactivity, and seamless integration with popular culture. The campaign has established the brand as one that knows how to make a statement.
