Singapore – Just months after the release of its ‘A Bolder Tomorrow’ campaign, Tiger Beer has launched a new campaign called ‘The Brewery, Uncaged’, which dramatises the beer’s brewing process centred around a retro-modernist theme.
The campaign, once again conceptualised by Publicis Groupe’s Le Pub, doubles down on the 80s nostalgia that is trending again amongst Gen Z. Bold, simple, sometimes over-the-top but also somewhat familiar, said campaign is steeped in cues from that iconic decade but with a modern layer to the styling and music.
Tiger Beer has also reinvented and modernised the classic ‘Eye of the Tiger’ track with a rap from Mega Ran, a globally-renowned DJ, rapper, and producer. Famous for fusing hip hop and gaming and for his endearing ‘nerdcore’ lyrics, Mega Ran’s songs have debuted on the Billboard Top 200.
For Sean O’Donnell, global brand director at Tiger Beer, the campaign perfectly dramatises the brand’s attitude towards perfecting the brew in the boldest possible way, with a reinvented soundtrack to match with it.
“Explaining what makes a great beer can be a generic and boring story that’s not very exciting for most consumers. But there is boldness rooted in Tiger Beer’s attitude – since 1932, we’ve been unstoppably bold, challenging the odds as a beer that was not supposed to exist in the tropics and is now a winner of global awards, conquering 60 markets and counting,” O’Donell said.
Meanwhile, Cyril Louis, executive creative director at LePub, commented, “From the first shot, it’s clear this is not a typical beer commercial; it’s all designed to entertain a new generation. A mix of styles takes elements of the past mixed with today’s culture to create something unique and entertaining while showcasing the Tiger brewing process, quality ingredients, and award winning credentials.”
The campaign is part of the latest 360-degree credentials campaign from Tiger Beer, which will run in all Tiger markets globally across TV, print, digital and online channels.
