BBH Singapore launches third IKEA store in Malaysia with a series of 4 tvcs offering choice

IKEA_Now There's Choice_1.jpgIKEA_Now There's Choice_2.jpgBBH Singapore is teasing audiences with the promise of 'Choice' to launch IKEA's third new store in Malaysia, the biggest in Southeast Asia to date.
There are some things in life you can't choose. Like your mother-in-law or your daughter's boyfriend or even your wife's beloved cats. But a new campaign - for the IKEA Tebrau store in Johor Bahru - reveals that with a new IKEA in town, you can choose from thousands of home furnishing pieces to ease the many tensions domestic life brings.
A series of films - capturing everyday domestic life - were shot by renowned Argentinian film director Augusto G Zapiola, known for his subtle observational humour.

Nikhil Panjwani, Creative Director at BBH Singapore said: "Our actors, who didn't speak a word of English were getting instructions from Augusto who spoke mostly in Spanish. It was fascinating how just hand gestures and body language saved the day and nothing was lost in translation."
Said Augusto G Zapiola: "From the first call with the agency and client, I knew we were all on the same boat, free to experiment and collaborate during the whole process. I am really happy with the result."
The films will launch on TV in Malaysia this week supported by digital, print, outdoor and radio.
