Reprise Digital, the full-service integrated communications agency within the IPG Mediabrands network, has released a digitally-led campaign with Bayer Malaysia’s Redoxon to set the scene for a healthy Ramadan.
The thematic film titled ‘Kuatkan imuniti, rezeki Ramadan dinikmati’ (translated: A strengthened immunity allows the blessings of Ramadan to be enjoyed) highlights the importance of keeping the body’s immune system strong during the fasting month. The campaign aims to create a healthier and more meaningful Ramadan and features Redoxon’s newly appointed Brand Ambassador, Lisa Surihani, a well-known celebrity.
Amir Faiz, Group Creative Director of Reprise said, “The film was inspired by Malaysian Muslims who work their hardest to achieve the ideal Raya celebrations with family. This can be seen in the intense moonlighting during Ramadan to earn a side income. As expectations run high to have the best decorations, outfits, and homes, it is a time of long hours and intense pressure to fulfil familial obligations. We chose to spread this message of health and boosting immunity in a light-hearted way through Seloka, embracing both the fun and pressures of the month.”
Seloka is a Malay musical genre, commonly used in a witty way for the storytelling of folklore and traditions.
Junie H’ng, ASEAN Brand Lead of Redoxon said, “Ramadan is all about observing faith and practising moderation in eating and personal habits. We want Muslims to know that Redoxon is here to help them stay healthy as they keep hustling to seek their ‘rezeki’ (good fortune). The Reprise team have successfully portrayed those messages by encouraging thought towards self-care this Ramadan. By taking Redoxon Triple Action daily which contains Vitamin C, Zinc, and now added with Vitamin D, one can maintain immunity and overall well-being to be empowered to find your blessings.”
Amir adds, “After a long hiatus of celebrations with the pandemic, there is an urge to make this year’s celebrations a huge affair. The campaign aims to show immunity as the currency to keep you going and extends its legs through social engagements with Redoxon brand ambassador.”
Alongside the film, the audience can engage with ‘Redoxon Petua Busters’ (Redoxon myth busters), highlighting common tips and solutions to strengthen immunity, without having to resort to typical traditional beliefs. To give back to the community and show appreciation to those hustling, the “Hustle Demi Idealfitri” activation allows Air Asia app users to exchange rewards points to sponsor a Redoxon Ramadan Care Pack for Air Asia’s riders.
The film was directed by Esham Shahlin and produced by Artisia Productions. It was released on 5 April on digital channels. View ‘Kuatkan imuniti, rezeki Ramadan dinikmati’ here.
