MTR launches TVC for route between Lok Ma Chau, Shenzhen

Hong Kong's MTR has launched a cross boundary promotion for its Lok Ma Chau - Shenzhen route, connecting locals with one of Hong Kong's favourite shopping destinations.

MTR launches TVC for route between Lok Ma Chau, Shenzhen

This cross boundary promotion draws attention to the connection between Lok Ma Chou Station (LMC) and the Shenzhen Metro Longhua Line

The creative concept by Two Hundred Limited, the agency in charge of non-corporate business for MTR, is a play on the Chinese name for LMC. The two words 'Lok ma' translates to 'getting off a horse' in Cantonese.

Subsequently, the commercial implies commuters can get to their favourite restaurants, spas and shopping centres in Shenzhen by simply 'getting off a horse'. 

The TVC, supported online and through a series of print ads, also encourages people to visit the Shenzhen Zone of MTR Customer Forum and MTR Mobile iPhone App, which launched in October 2010, for guides and promotions.
