DBS to Singapore: 'Huat ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh'

Campaign by TSLA and produced by Sweetshop aims to elicit screams of CNY joy.

A new campaign for DBS may be a punny homage to a Budweiser Super Bowl ad that became a meme so long ago that we didn't call memes memes yet. But that's not a bad thing. It's fun, and a welcome note of lightness for both DBS and the Chinese New Year season. Ad Nut also adores that DBS calls its person-to-person payment app DBS PayLah.

The ad is directed by Sweetshop’s Simon Cracknell and the agency is TSLA Singapore. The campaign comes along with a contest, with a chance of winning S$8888 (US$6600) for giving or receiving the most QR-based 'eAng Baos' or S$188 (US$140) in 10 daily drawings.
