Tiger Beer 2022 campaign supports local artists through NFTs

Once every 12 years for the year of Tiger, Tiger Beer initiates a global UNCAGE campaign through various local activities.

Globally, Tiger Beer has partnered with South Korean football icon Son Heung-Min to ignite a global movement and encourage fans to set aside their fears and achieve their boldest ambitions in 2022.

Son has declared that for The Year of the Tiger, he is inspired to win a major trophy for his country. The Tiger Brand Ambassador has shared a series of emojis on his Instagram expressing his targets for the year and has incited fans to share their own bold goals too. All fans have to do is respond to the “My Year, My Goals” Instagram “Add Yours” story sticker feature, created by Tiger Beer with their own ambitions for the Year of the Tiger.

For Malaysia, Tiger Beer’s local Chinese New Year (CNY) campaign - The Year We ROAR Together - aims to encourage fans to go all out to pursue their dreams and goals. Most noticeable is the 3D Tiger motion picture at the mall’s entrance.

Traditional Asian Street installations with a contemporary twist at the Connection area have been installed and will stay until 15th February 2022. The public can participate in the game booths and win exclusive Tiger merchandise.

Year of the Tiger Ang Pow packets will be available when purchasing RM88 worth of HEINEKEN Malaysia products at selected outlets in Pavilion KL, while stocks last.

Engage with Tiger’s Augmented Reality ‘Roaring Greetings” in various QR code touchpoints along the Connection area to interact virtually with a Tiger and generate CNY greetings that can be shared digitally. At the same time, stand to win exclusive Tiger Mahjong sets with two weekly winners from now until 15th February 2022. These QR codes can also be found on Tiger’s limited-edition cans and other touchpoints like the ‘Roar Together’ murals and print ads during the festive period. 

Championing local artists

As part of the campaign to support local artists, Tiger Beer has commissioned the Tiger “Roar Together” art installations by three up-and-coming artists of diverse backgrounds – Thomas Powell, Sheena Liam and Pamela Tan at Pavilion’s main entrance from 10th January 2022.
