It is tradition of #HappyBeautifulYear at Watsons. The largest health and beauty retailer in Malaysia and Asia ushers into Chinese New Year with a star-studded campaign video set in an opulent style of 1940s Malaysian Chinese and “East Meet West” culture infusion featuring local celebrities, popular social media influencers, and an original musical score. Of course, the storyline of this video comes with a twist – Watsons style.
“Every year, Watsons’ Chinese New Year music video has to be one of the highly anticipated campaigns across Malaysia. Following the success of our previous #HappyBeautifulYear, we are proud to bring back #HappyBeautifulYear as part of Watsons own tradition. This year, we welcome 2019 with a beautiful message of reconciliation and family togetherness. It’s about putting aside our differences to celebrate Chinese New Year together. Watsons is proud to showcase the music video that is produced and directed with the most original, comical storyline with a charming song arrangement. We believe it will be one of Malaysia’s favorite videos to watch in this festive season,” said Caryn Loh, Managing Director of Watsons Malaysia.
The celebrities appearing in this star-studded video include JinnyBoy, Amber Chia, Pink Tan, John Tan, Justin, Han Xiiao Aii, with cameo appearances by Watsons own Malaysia’s Top Influencers (Fasiha, Eva and Daniel), Rubini Sambanthan, Eldison Lim and Gary Hau.
Styled by renowned fashion designer, Beatrice Looi, the wardrobes drawn the inspiration from Haipai, an avant-garde but “East Meet West” culture from Shanghai back in 20th and 21st centuries. These wardrobes were a hit amongst Malaysian Chinese in the 1940s.
#HappyBeautifulYear tells a musical story of siblings’ rivalry over trivial matter. The drama begins when a younger sister is seen donning the eldest sister’s outfit, makeups and accessories without permission during the family reunion dinner.
The music video later ends with a beautiful message of putting aside differences and unites with one another for a time of togetherness and good wishes to everyone.
Caryn added, “At Watsons Malaysia, we aim to promote and celebrate inner beauty among our customers and looking the best during this joyous festivity. The choice of putting aside differences and coming together as family and friends reflects one of the “inner beauty” qualities that we all have within us. We hope that by sharing across such compelling message to everyone, customers who shop at Watsons will have a more meaningful and unique experience with their loved ones.”
