CHICAGO, Feb. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Who can beat Tony Hawk? Pacifico, the adventurous pilsner-style lager, has teamed up with the skateboarding legend to find out. Together, they are hosting “Pacifico’s Tony Hawk Pro Skater Challenge,” a livestreamed event and sweepstakes that calls on fans 21+ to share their scores in the bestselling game for the chance to win Pacifico-branded prizes, including the ultimate gaming setup.

“Pacifico is not only my go-to beer for celebrations, but they also understand my culture. I believe life is all about following your passions and pushing your limits,” said Tony Hawk. “See if you have what it takes to beat me at my own game.”

On Thursday, Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. EST, fans are invited to tune in to the 30-minute livestreamed event airing across IGN’s website, YouTube, Twitter and Twitch channels where Tony will share his favorite tricks, Easter eggs, and more, as well as set a high score during a two-minute session. Blending his virtual and real-life personas, Tony will show fans his gaming tricks while hanging on the Pacifico yellow couch, placed directly inside his personal half-pipe.

“Tony’s a great fit for Pacifico because he embodies what we call Living Life Anchors Up, following what’s important in life and freeing yourself from the things that weigh you down,” said Alex Schultz, Senior Director of Marketing for Pacifico. “It’s incredible how he’s inspired and brought together gamers and skaters, making him the perfect partner to share Pacifico and our way of life with the next generation of 21 and up gaming and action sports fans.”

How fans 21+ can enter for a chance to win gear:
From Feb. 18 to March 4, fans 21+ can enter the challenge by sharing their own Tony Hawk Pro Skater scores. The actual scores will have no bearing on entry, meaning fans can submit scores higher or lower than Tony’s for a chance to win.

One lucky grand prize winner will receive the ultimate Pacifico-Tony Hawk prize pack valued at $5,000, featuring a gaming console, a 55-inch 4K smart TV, a Tony Hawk-signed copy of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 and more. Thirty additional fans will win a co-branded Astro A40 Headset.

About the Pacifico Brand Family
Pacifico Clara is a golden, drinkable lager beer with rich smooth flavor, imported from Mexico. The beer was started by three Germans in Mazatlán, Mexico in 1900. As the story goes, Pacifico was originally “imported” to the U.S. by Californian surfers who visited Baja, loved the beer and brought it back to the U.S. to share with other like-minded individuals. Those surfers epitomized the essence of Pacifico – independent spirits who followed their own path – and their spirit is carried on by the brand to this day.
