Spotify gets personal with Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia

A fast-paced Southeast Asia campaign—from Six Toes Singapore, Sweetshop and director Damon Escott—glories in youth subcultures in Jakarta, Bangkok and Manila.

As part of its 'Only you' campaign, Spotify is releasing three attitude-packed spots that get specific with the music and culture preferences of young people in Jakarta, Bangkok and Manila. (The video player above will cycle through all three spots.)

As a squirrel who spends most days holed up in a tree watching the world's advertising, Ad Nut has absolutely no idea what musical styles or artists the people are referring to—which is as it should be! Nonetheless, the vibrant and enthusiastic people, along with the fast-moving cinematography and the soundtracks, make for a pretty intoxicating mix. You be you, young people!

The campaign also includes specific playlists for each market, which Ad Nut will now try to seek out.

Ad Nut is a surprisingly literate woodland creature that for unknown reasons has an unhealthy obsession with advertising. Ad Nut gathers ads from all over Asia and the world for your viewing pleasure, because Ad Nut loves you.
