Tokyo Ginza Street Lands In Malaysia: An Escapist Fantasy With 7 Levels Of Virtual Reality Becomes A Global First – Best in Adtech/ Martech

How do you drive novelty and impact with urban affluent women who are stuck at home and cannot shop for their favourite beauty products at department stores, the main channel for this experiential category?

Insights shows that women play more casual games online than men, contrary to popular opinion. 

Using this insight along with the fact that digital clutter created by high-spending competitors needed to be broken, the agency decided to create a VIRTUAL REALITY experience of GINZA STREET TOKYO, that brought a category-first wonderland alive for our target. 

Malaysia is the first country in the world where Shiseido has launched a VR experience, and other markets are studying the agency’s work to adapt it.  This proves that Malaysian indeed boleh!
