Miller Lite offering free beer if you unfollow them

News

(CNN) — Miller Coors wants to buy you a beer, but you have to unfollow the Miller Lite brand first.

It’s part of a new campaign debuting in a commercial spot airing Tuesday in game one of the World Series.

The premise is “a few friends are better than a few thousand followers.”

The brewer says it got the idea after learning half of all drinkers aged 21 to 27 say they meet with their friends fewer than a few times a month.

So even though it may seem counter-productive, encouraging people to go out may be good for the company’s bottom line.

To get in on the deal, you have to take a photo proving you unfollowed Miller Lite on Facebook or Instagram, then text it to the company.

You’ll then get a link telling you where to upload your receipt, and Miller will credit your Pay-Pal account the cost of a beer.

It’s good until November 29th, or until 118,000 free beers have been handed out.
