Tiger Beer and Ogilvy release CNY short film

Tiger Beer has teamed up with Ogilvy Malaysia with a new campaign in the form of a short film this Chinese New Year.

While previously the beer brand has been focusing on beer promotions for consumers this year it has chosen a different tactic.

In line with Tiger’s ‘Uncage’ platform which seeks to inspire people to follow their passion in spite of societal expectations, the new film tells the story of a young man who dreams of becoming a successful tattoo artist – which puts him at odds with his father’s traditional viewpoints.

While the film avoids traditional Chinese New Year clichés in favour of telling a real, relatable story, it ends with a message that still resonates at this time of year – that family is forever.

Tiger Beer is a brand with a strong and youthful identity, both visually and in our core beliefs. Working with Ogilvy Malaysia on this campaign has been incredibly exciting, as we’ve been able to bring this identity to life through this fantastic new film. It’s great to see this tiger finding its voice and giving a full-throated roar once again.” said Jiri Rakosnik, Marketing Director of Heineken Malaysia Berhad.

“We think we’ve done justice to the brand with our new film, with its gritty realness equally inspired by the streets of KL and the 90s Hong Kong movies our generation has grown up with.” said Jarrod Reginald, Creative Director at Ogilvy Malaysia.

Tiger Beer’s Chinese New Year campaign runs from now until mid-February, with a range of promotions and millions of ringgit worth of prizes up for grabs. To find out more, visit www.facebook.com/TigerBeerMY
