Weekend Fun: Lifebuoy owns the ‘red packet’ this Chinese New Year

Watch the ad film conceptualised BBH Shanghai here

Lifebuoy took ownership of the traditional celebration during Chinese New Year (19 February) to re-establish its 'germ-free' promise. 
 
An campaign conceptualised by BBH Shanghai saw Lifebuoy creating ‘red packets’ (hong bao), in which elders offer money to their loved ones as part of  the festivities, and distributing them. The envelopes have been made from anti-bacterial soap, so that after the exchange of (currency) notes, they can be used as soap. In effect, the campaign elevates paper soap to be a seamless part of the celebration.
 
A note alongside the video (above) on the campaign claims that each year, US $ 5bn is exchanged during the festival, carrying with it an exchange of germs – for which the Lifebuoy ‘red packets’ offer a solution.
