Post-Production Technology Delivers Authentic Brand Ad Placement
Mirriad, a leader in computer vision and AI-powered in-content advertising, announced the integration of Mexican beer brand Tecate into artist Giovanny Ayala’s music video. The video’s release, timed to New Years Eve, features Tecate brand signage and product seamlessly integrated throughout Ayala’s latest hit ‘Pa’ Que No Te Anden Contando’ distributed by music label Gerencia 360, the leading representation for Regional Mexican artists.
This partnership represents Mirriad’s proprietary technology and its ability to deliver authentic ad integrations for brands and artists, all completed in post-production. Mirriad was able to execute this initiative within hours, which is completely unprecedented in the product placement arena. The efficiency of the tech enables advertisers to access content that would be otherwise unavailable to them, creating new opportunities for brands to connect with their core consumers at scale.

The social movements of 2020 have inspired more companies to lean into multicultural consumers and allocate larger portions of their advertising budgets to diverse content that resonate with these communities. Mirriad’s multicultural content portfolio gives brands the chance to put action behind these objectives in an intuitive and thoughtful manner. Mirriad’s core tech capabilities take targeting a step further to go beyond demographics to also match artists and brands based on the context of scenes within the content.
“It’s a priority for Mirriad to authentically align brands to not only the right content, but the right moments. And for me as a Latina, I want to ensure that we’re enhancing those moments to highlight the multicultural experience without the cultural gaffes and stereotyping our communities have been subjected to for years,” shared Maria Teresa Hernandez, VP of Brand Partnerships at Mirriad. “Tecate and Ayala are a great example of an authentic partnership of brand and artist that will resonate and enrich the relationship with their loyal audiences.”
