DDB China's Huangdao Leads Nationwide Charge on Graduate Positiity
China Central Television (CCTV), the predominant state television broadcaster in mainland China has launched a nationwide campaign through its own multiple channel network, to encourage China’s fresh graduates to stay upbeat in 2016 as the Middle Kingdom braces itself for an economic slowdown, which will affect employment, especially amongst fresh graduates. The campaign, “I am 23!” will be launched on the state broadcaster’s 11 most popular channels and online video sites to underpin their brand campaign. The agency behind this campaign TVC is Huangdao (a member of DDB Group China).
The television commercial unveiled a successful Chinese 'Lao Zong,' a vernacular loosely translated as, 'Boss Man' in Mandarin, to epitomise the power of management forces at the very top, the forces who have the ability to hire and fire.
His statements were flashy, proclaiming his riches and successes, elaborating on his business diversity and global operations.
On the flip side of the TVC, a team of 23-year-olds, declared in positive tones, “I am 23!” The underlying message being that youth is their greatest asset. The youths featured included a BMX champion biker from Jiangsu, Zhejiang, a young fashion designer, an organic farmer and even a rising star in the Chinese military.
“We are honoured to work on this TVC for CCTV. Our Group hires a diverse team of young, local talents from all over the mainland. Even the team that worked on this campaign could resonate with it,” said Adams Fan, Executive Creative Director, Huangdao.
