Leap Days don’t happen very often. Somewhere around once every presidential election year or so, apparently. Because they always seem to land somewhere around the end of February, it’s a great excuse to escape the dregs of winter and escape to sunny shores in Mexico, Florida, Panama or Hawaii. Sadly, not all of us can get away February 29th and we’re stuck “enjoying” all the pictures of tanned legs and cold beers coming across our Instagram feed.
This Leap Day, Corona Extra offers a remedy: The Fakecation. Fans who visit coronausa.com/fakecation will find downloadable “Find Your Beach” background photos of tropical getaways (Private Beach, Secluded Waterfall, etc), and instructions how to insert yourself (or your beer) into the image. Crop it just right and make your friends jealous with your sunny escapades. Pro tip: Your fingertips make good substitutes for the classic knees/hot dogs social beach image. The folks at Corona have even posted a How To video on the topic.
Even better: the Fakecation can turn into a real vacation if you’re lucky: From February 24 through March 7, fans (21 and over) who post their photos on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) with the hashtags #CoronaFakecation and #Sweepstakes will be entered to win a $4,500 travel voucher through their travel agent.
