Indomie celebrates its 45-Year anniversary with an ode to heritage in a campaign by Seven Sunday Films via MullenLowe Group Indonesia

Indomie.jpgCelebrating 45 years of feeding Indonesians their favourite instant noodles, Indofood brand Indomie has released a nostalgic commercial that tracks its much-loved local heritage from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and all the way through to the present day.

Produced by Seven Sunday Films via MullenLowe Group Indonesia, the campaign was shot by award winning director Mark Toia and follows a young man as he goes through the most important stages of his life: from 1972 as a boy (when Indomie first launched), through to starting his own business and seeing his children grow up.

The campaign idea also celebrates important periods in Indonesian history, including: the construction of landmark building Monas in the 70s; the victorious day in the 80s when Indonesian won the Thomas Cup; during the 90s when Indonesia suffered through the Asian financial crisis; and, in 2008, when the country was acknowledged as the original creators of Batik.

Seven Sunday Films executive producer, Rodney Vincent, says: "We are pleased with this beautifully composed Indofood story and we feel that the storyline and the characters spotlighted throughout will resonate with audiences all around the country. Long live Indomie!"
