Here be monsters: This campaign makes retirement planning into a perilous journey

A couple in a paper boat gets menaced by storms, volcanos and a sea monster in an entertaining spot for the The Hong Kong Mortgage Corp by Triangle Marketing.

Avengers and Game of Thrones have nothing on this tremendously enjoyable adventure, at least in Ad Nut's book.

The spot is part of a campaign for The Hong Kong Mortgage Corporation (HKMC), a government-owned private company. Triangle Marketing devised the HKMC's strategy and branding, produced all the online and offline creative and planned and executed all the online and offline media. The campaign includes TV, online video on YouTube, Facebook, Google, Yahoo and MyTVSuper, plus live shopping-mall events.
