In time for the Chinese New Year holidays, McDonald’s launched a new brand campaign aimed at deepening its connection with consumers in Hong Kong, featuring Eason Chan singing Elton’s Your Song.
Created by DDB Group Hong Kong, the #LittleBigMoments campaign celebrates the small but magical moments that make life special. Showcasing the full spectrum of emotions, it focuses on moments of human connection.
“It’s been a real privilege to work with Eason Chan, and with the blessing of Sir Elton John, to create a campaign that is a love song dedicated to our customers.”
“Nothing stirs the heart like a great piece of music, and this is something our industry often forgets,” said Andreas Krasser, head of strategy & innovation at DDB Group Hong Kong.
“In this campaign we made the music the hero, with Eason Chan lending a home grown twist to one of the world’s most beloved songs.
“Since launching on the 15th of February, the brand spot has already garnered more than 2 million [views] across multiple digital channels, successfully reaching around one- third of Hong Kong people,” Krasser added.
The #LittleBigMoments campaign led with a 60 second brand spot, followed on February 20 by an additional three 15 second stories — each focusing on some of the moments portrayed in the brand piece, but also on some of Hong Kong’s favourite McDonald’s products, the grilled chicken burger and chicken nuggets, as well as the new egg and beef burger from Japan.
