Ensemble turns me on for Astro

Ensemble Worldwide has taken on a cheeky approach for Astro’s latest ‘Turn Me On’ campaign, aimed to demonstrate Astro’s viewing experience from On demand, On channels and On the go.

The ‘Turn Me On’ campaign looks to light the spark between Astro and its customers, launched with a playful music video featuring the theme song ‘Turn Me On’ inspired by Backstreet Boys’ ‘90s hit song, ‘I Want It That Way’.

Through romantic expressions within the lyrics, the song entices Malaysians to spice up their viewing experience for an immersive and seamless journey by exploring 3 ways to Turn Me On or begin a new relationship with Astro.

Phang Mei Jeng, General Manager of Ensemble Worldwide told MARKETING Malaysia, “Creating this campaign was so much fun, as the video gave us an opportunity to get playful with rewriting the lyrics, the choreography and the shoot. The double meanings and innuendo have turned some heads and got people talking on social media platforms.”

The 360 campaign runs from 26 Sep – 30 Nov 2020 across TV, radio, DOOH, digital and on-ground activation to further engage with Malaysians.

Besides the music video, the 3 ways to ‘Turn Me On’ choreography will be used in collaborating with influencers to launch a dance challenge on Instagram Stories.

A ‘Turn Me On’ radio contest will further reward listeners who call in after the Turn Me On song cue to correctly answer a simple question.

Christinne Lim, Director, Marketing at Astro adds, “This campaign shows customers three main ways to enjoy our service – Channels browsing for viewers to catch their favourite scheduled content; Video On Demand, allowing viewers to stream over 50,000 of their favourite shows anytime; and Astro GO, a stream-anywhere service, accessible across four devices simultaneously.”


The full-day Malaysian Media Conference on October 23 showcases 20 speakers and panelists and will be held at the Sime Darby Convention, which adheres to the highest COVID-19 protocol standards. REGISTER HERE: https://marketingmagazine.com.my/event/malaysian-media-conference-2020/
