Tiger beer amps up Dragon power
In Chinese culture, the dragon is deemed to be a strong and desirable zodiac symbol. When coupled with the spirit of the tiger, they represent a formidable force. This is why Tiger Beer is encouraging consumers to recognise their courageous achievements and set even bolder ambitions for the Year of the Dragon. With a series of exciting promotions and activities filled with unstoppable ‘huat’, the ‘Cheers to a Bolder Tomorrow’ campaign was officially launched at Sunway Velocity Mall recently.
Last week, a video of a larger-than-life tiger and dragon coming together in KL city was spread across social media, sparking curiosity among netizens. It was revealed that Tiger Beer was behind the viral stunt and wanted to inspire Malaysians to uncage their inner courage to embrace their boldest ambitions this year.
Tiger Beer is taking over the concourse area at Sunway Velocity Mall KL until Jan 28, Gurney Plaza Penang from Jan 24 until Feb, and Ipoh Parade in Ipoh from Jan 23 until Feb 9. Shoppers can win exclusive merchandise when they take part in a variety of on-ground games. At the official media launch, members of the media got an exclusive first look and tried their hand at the activities.
Kicking off the official launch, Roland Bala, Managing Director of Heineken Malaysia Berhad, and Willemijn Sneep, Marketing Director of HEINEKEN Malaysia, set the tone for the evening with the crowd as they excitedly chanted the campaign tagline, ‘Gan Gan Chong’ before the launch animation video was played.
“CNY is a time when we come together with friends and family optimistically hoping for a prosperous year ahead, and Tiger Beer wants to be part of the celebration with everyone. With attractive nationwide activations and promotions, we want our loyal consumers to experience the formidable force of the tiger and the dragon as they ‘Cheers to a Bolder Tomorrow’ by setting ambitions even bolder than before,” said Roland Bala, Managing Director of Heineken Malaysia Berhad.
