Can Hotel Jen be a catalyst for creative thinking?

From Singapore: ‘#NextJen' for Hotel Jen Tanglin by DigitasLBi

This is the first piece of work we've seen by DigitasLBi since Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts appointed the agency as its global AOR. It tries to draw guests to the refurbished Hotel Jen Tanglin in Singapore.

In a press release, DigitasLBi describes the launch ad as a "film" that "invites guests to be part of the new concept, making the hotel a platform for a new generation" of people who apparently engage in activities such as cycling vertically on walls, combing mohawk hairstyles and spraying 'OK-lah' graffitti. Ad Nut is calling the ad what it is—an ad.

That said, Ad Nut likes that Hotel Jen is trying to set itself apart as the new 'ideas hotel', a catalyst and incubation space for creative thinking. Perhaps Ad Nut will book a staycation now.
