The Challenge
Maybank collaborated with the much anticipated Star Wars to take over the craze around the biggest Sci-Fi extravaganza. This partnership cost fortunes and we were only given RM 95,000 for 4 weeks to maximize participation for contest to win a trip to Star Wars themed park in London trip.

Insight, Strategy and the Idea
Most fans feel a strong nostalgia & they wished the STARWARS’ acts could happen in real. The movie resonated with people across generations hence was a family experience. Furthermore, media analysis suggested that Malaysian families spent a lot of time out of home especially in Malls. Agency suggested an innovative three prong “EXPERIENTIAL OOH WRAP” OF KLANG’S BIGGEST MALLS TO MAKE THE AUDIENCE BELIEVE “STARWARS WAS FOR REAL”.

Media Execution
1. The First & the Largest branded Movie Mural in Malaysia: For the first time in Malaysia, Agency executed a gigantic 55 by 40 feet customized Wall mural of Maybank Star Wars’ offer in the Midvalley Mall.
2. The first ever Activation Synchronization with OOH Mural: We synchronized our Middvalley Mural with the first ever StarWars flash mob in Malaysia. This was a live manifestation of their favorite movie right across Maybank StarWars wall mural.
