The Olympics resulted in a mad rush by brands to sign up local athletes, including Lee Chong Wei, resulting in a humongous clutter. He was 100 PLUS’s long time ambassador, we had to find a way to break the clutter while staying true to 100 PLUS’s “Out do Yourself” commitment. 

Celebrity athletes are presented in an aloof and unrelatable way, but 100 PLUS believed in celebrating their journey, spirit and personal stories making an “Out do Yourself” champion. With LCW’s upcoming wedding, we found the perfect match. Understanding that Malaysians love weddings, Media Agency recommended to bring Malaysians together in the biggest “sporting” event and we struck a social media first, the exclusivity to get Malaysia to walk down the aisle with LCW!

As the nation buzzed with wedding fever, 100 PLUS became the social wedding hub for LCW fans. Fans ‘out did themselves’ to participate in every step, from the Proposal, Wishes, Wedding dinner to the post wedding celebrations. 100 PLUS’s Twitter and Facebook handles were abuzz with exclusive contests, trivia, peeks and live video streaming of the journey throughout the nuptials as half a million Malaysians walked down the social aisle with Dato’ LCW. 

Malaysia’s first social wedding saw fan growth rate increase by 617% and the campaign reached 3.41 million organically, via likes and shares. The posts were the most liked and shared in 100 PLUS’s history hence increasing fan engagement by 427%. “Brand for Me” scores increased by 6.3%.
