Miller Lite is bringing a limited number of its dark-colored Offline Cans to bars across the country to inspire more drinkers to take a break from social media and spend time with friends over a beer.
The limited-edition matte black cans will be available in more than 500 bars and taverns in 27 states starting this week. Miller Lite’s Offline Can will be supported by two new TV ads, social media and a point-of-sale marketing campaign that aims to inspire drinkers to invite friends for a night out over Miller Lite.
In select bars where the cans are available, Miller Lite will reward some drinkers for going offline with their own Miller Lite Offline Can, where permitted and while supplies last. Using Facebook’s new “SideFlix” technology, bargoers can invite their friends to join them in putting down their phones and “going offline.” If the group collectively puts their phones down for 30 minutes, they could be eligible to receive a Miller Lite Offline Can.
