While well-intentioned, questions about salary, career, social status and looks often place young people in a difficult situation. This year, they will be able to call on witty tips from a Facebook application that aims to arm users with smart and instant responses to dodgy questions.
The campaign, by Host Singapore, launched on 19 January on the Heaven and Earth Facebook page. It kicked off with a film co-created with Night Owl Cinematics, Singapore’s YouTube stars.
“We wanted to create a campaign based on rich insights that our customers can relate to,” said Andrew Jeffrey, marketing manager at Coca-Cola. “The Facebook app not only acts as a useful survival tool during CNY, it also entertains users along the way.”
“This is branded content at its purest,” said Dan Gibson, MD of Host Singapore. “We're building on the brand's ‘Stay calm and keep going’ platform in a way that’s both entertaining and useful to consumers.”
As at 28 January 2014, the video has garnered a total of 118,450 views and 2655 likes on YouTube.
