Client: Shell Helix
Tomaz Mok, co-founder, Match:
Given an extremely cluttered market in China, a brand needs a way to truly resonate with Chinese consumers. This unique social campaign “Drive On” highlights the 51st world heritage site Kekexili, with the filmmaker Lu Chuan, whose movie once brought to the public attention of this conserved area 15 years ago. The journey is introduced by Lu Chuan, revisiting his personal guests who helped to make the movie famous. The buzz continued with live-telecasted on-ground activations. A unique place, a creator and his supporters, a memorable and meaningful journey; indeed, it’s a beautiful brand-activation campaign.
