But it turned out that Hayek was actually promoting her new
Netflix series “Monarca.” A video ad for the fictional product included visual
components like a snake, barrels in blazes, a bullet striking a glass of
tequila- the kind of things that marketers wouldn’t want to associate their
products with. In addition to this, the actress claimed that the tequila would
have a flavor of treachery “El Sabor de la Taricon,” another thing suggesting
that the product is actually fictional because real-life marketers wouldn’t
want to give their products a connotation like that.
In Netflix’s series, Tequila Herederos is a major product of
the Monarca Corporation, which initiated with simple bottling and distilling of
the beverage and later expanded to massive enterprises including hotels,
transportation, construction, and many other businesses.
The series was bold enough to highlight the fact that a
person needs to build connections within government officials, private
companies and even drug dealers in order to be successful in Mexico.
