Mars is responsible for SelvaRey’s bottle designs, all of which come from a single estate in Panama. He also directed and starred in the company’s campaign video.

Bruno Mars is not the only celeb to be seen in a drinks ad campaign of late. Doja Cat recently collaborated with PepsiCo in a Grease-inspired advert. Find out more on that here.
