Estrella Jalisco took on negative stereotypes on Facebook about Mexicans by creating pages, groups and sites to celebrate its country's heritage, altering the search results to be more positive

One of Anheuser-Busch InBev‘s Mexican imports, Estrella Jalisco, is taking on Facebook‘s search generator to spread a positive message about its country. Along with a team of Mexican-American artists, the brand sought to replace the negative auto-generated search results when “Mexicans are…” is typed in to Facebook’s search bar.

Before Estrella got to work on generating pages, groups and websites to celebrate Mexican heritage, some of the top autofill answers generated were “loud,” “lazy” and “ugly.” After the brand’s efforts, the answers included much more positive words like “passionate” and “caring.”

To accompany this internet cleanup, Estrella Jalisco released a video campaign in promotion of the effort, called “Share for Good,” which encouraged mindful social media practices. The brand hopes to combine a celebration of its heritage and a message of positivity with a social media activation and brand promotion.
