Manulife deploys TV favourites in Hong Kong

THE WORK: 'The Hans' for Manulife Hong Kong by Mcgarrybowen.

Manulife Hong Kong promotes the tax-optimisation benefits of its products with this video by Mcgarrybowen. It stars Vivian Chow, whose presence is meant to remind folks of 'Han Mui', a frugal character she played in a popular 1990s TV series. She's joined by Rosa Maria Velasco, a popular TV performer who plays all four members of the Han family, each of whom has their own money-saving strategy.

Popular local celebrities, broad humour and callbacks to local culture: These are tactics that never go out of style in Hong Kong. And goodness knows people in that troubled city could use a chuckle these days.
