Tai Hing's new 'My hero' campaign is funnier than ever

Tai Hing's new 'My hero' campaign is funnier than ever

It’s been two years since Tai Hing Roast Restaurant launched its new brand campaign, which transformed local singer songwriter Eric Kwok into a superhero.

The latest ad, ‘My Hero II’ is a followup campaign in the same vein. This time the brand takes things a step further with its resemblance to Marvel’s Avengers and a Captain America look-a-like armed with a wok that doubles as a shield. The silhouettes in the opening of the ad also seem to pay homage to 007.

What might be clever about the timing of ‘My Hero II’ is its lead up to the release of Captain America: Civil War in May. Tai Hing will be riding the wave of the film franchise’s movie marketing combined with its own as the Marvel characters and Tai Hing’s spinoff stay top-of-mind.

Tai Hing has also been active on social media and is producing funny skits and behind-the-scenes videos that complement the core campaign and ad. The brand is also running a competition to find out who peoples' favourite character is. 

 Ad Nut likes a good brand ambassador because Ad Nut is also a good brand ambassador.
