All-New 2019 Toyota Vios Launch

Thursday, January 24, 2019

As Never Before, with A Grand Music Video UMW Toyota Motor releases its first ever music video starring the All-New Toyota Vios, Malaysian celebrity Shukri Yahaya and beatboxer Shawn Lee

Sportier and more advanced than its predecessor, the newest generation Vios was officially introduced today through its very own music video, a project created to defy convention and reignite Malaysians’ desire for this ever popular urban sedan. Featuring Malaysian celebrity Shukri Yahaya and beatboxer. Shawn Lee, the music video has been appropriately titled “As Never Before” and promises viewers a brief yet inspiring and authentic 2019 Vios experience.

“The first ever Toyota Vios was introduced in 2003 and today, we are proud to present our All-New Vios – a car that has undergone vast improvements to take driving experience to the next level. Just as we consistently bring innovation to our cars, we wanted to do the same in how we communicate to our customers. We wanted to move past the norm and because music is a universal language, we embarked on a creative journey to produce a catchy music video that speaks directly to the hearts of our consumers while showcasing the enhanced qualities of the All-New Vios. We pride ourselves on being different from the rest of the competition, and hence, are celebrating the new Toyota Vios, As Never Before,” said Mr Ravindran K., President of UMW Toyota Motor.

The inspiration began from the brand itself with its new brand premise “All About The Drive” for the All-New Toyota Vios. It inspired Toyota to create marketing ideas beyond conventional mediums and leverage on digital content that came in the form of musical entertainment. The first attempt for Toyota and the Vios, the music video is an amalgamation of the car’s aesthetic design, on-road drivability and performance as well as the new image. “As Never Before” relied on placing special cameras on specific points on the car to shoot the music video, giving the brand the opportunity to highlight the car’s optimum styling, performance and drivability when manoeuvring tight corners and sharp turns.

“This was a bold move for Toyota. By pushing the boundaries of what a typical car commercial looks like, Toyota has cemented its place among inspiring brands. The entire production, from its inception, required approximately three months and over 50 people to complete. It was a quite an interesting challenge but at the end of the day, it was all worth it. We hope Toyota doesn’t stop here and that the creativity will be kept alive,” said Rajay Singh, one of three renowned film directors to produce this video.

““As Never Before” is by far the largest scale music video for UMW Toyota Motor Malaysia not only in terms of production scale but overall creativity and effort as well. We also added magnitude to the music video by having two of our leading drivers of Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) to represent the brand and complete the image of the All-New Vios. Right from day one, Shukri Yahaya and Shawn Lee had the perfect chemistry as they were the only two driving together since the inception of Toyota Gazoo Racing in Malaysia and they have held their own in several races in the Sporting Class,” said Akio Takeyama, UMW Toyota Motor’s Deputy Chairman who is also an accomplished TGR racer himself.

Shukri Yahaya, whose journey with Toyota motorsport began in 2017-2018 season as a TGR racer, said that he was excited to be a part of this project and is immensely proud of the collective effort invested to create this music video. “This isn’t a project I’m accustomed to but it is close to my heart given my nostalgic history with Toyota. The spirit of the 2019 Toyota Vios is to exceed expectations by recognising trends and innovations, and ultimately be something better. This music video personifies that, and we hope our fellow Malaysians will be motivated to be better as well,” he said.

Also a fellow TGR racer, beatboxer Shawn Lee added that the nature of how the music video was shot makes it even more impressive, solidifying it as a memorable event in Toyota’s marketing history. “It was an honour to have been a part of this music video. Beatboxing and entertaining has always been and will always be my passion, but this project has elevated that to another level. What makes this project special is the creative ability to fuse music and automotive to create something fresh – I certainly look forward to being involved in more of such projects,” said Shawn Lee.

Uncage New Beginnings this Chinese New Year with Tiger Beer

Friday, January 11, 2019

Chinese New Year is the time of year when we usher in new beginnings with our family and friends. A new chapter of life is unveiled as we step into the new year with a renewed outlook on what is to come with the promise of good health, prosperity, and joy. Tiger Beer, Malaysia’s No. 1 Beer 1 , welcomed the Year of the Pig with a grand launch attended by HEINEKEN Malaysia Berhad’s management team, trade partners and members of the media.

The venue was of utmost decadence adorned with lanterns and motifs reminiscent of old Shanghai with a modern twist in spirit of ushering the new. Upon arrival, guests got to ‘pluck’ angpows containing a lucky draw ticket from the gilded Tree of Wealth before opening the doors to new beginnings. The event began with a stunning lion dance performance, led by ZhuBajie (a popular character inspired by Chinese novel Journey to the West), to invite luck - with each of the five lions in the colours representing the brands of the HEINEKEN Malaysia portfolio – Tiger, Heineken®, Guinness, Anchor and Apple Fox.

With the festive mood at an all-time high, HEINEKEN Malaysia Managing Director, Roland Bala, commenced the event with his speech and awakened the dragon for a mesmerizing dragon dance performance. Guests had the opportunity to participate in the Yee Sang tossing ceremony to usher in new beginnings with their wishes for a bountiful year ahead followed by a dinner with unique dishes specially for the festive season.

Speaking at the event, Roland said, “The festive season is a time for us to usher in the new with a renewed spirit as we leave behind the old. HEINEKEN Malaysia wants to celebrate this auspicious beginning with our loyal consumers to make this Chinese New Year a memorable one. This is the time of year where we celebrate with family and friends, hence, this year’s Chinese New Year campaign is packed with opportunities for consumers to win simply by enjoying the range of award-winning brews in our portfolio.”

During the grand event, guests were able to participate in a range of auspicious games and activities as they ushered in the new year - from tea leaf and Chinese palm reading, to welcoming the year of the Pig with intricate Chinese paper cutting and personalized calligraphy, there was something for everyone as they embarked on their journey into the Chinese New Year.

Consumers can usher in the new beginnings and be rewarded this festive season with Tiger Beer – all they have to do is enjoy their favorite brews from HEINEKEN Malaysia’s portfolio. Until mid-February, consumers who purchase any big bottle of Tiger Beer, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout or Heineken® at participating coffee shops, food courts and Chinese restaurants can check underneath their bottle caps for three different characters - “福” (Fu), “禧” (Xi) and “猪” (Zhu) - representing the different prizes to be won. One bottle cap marked “福” (Fu) allows consumers to redeem an angpow worth RM88,888, one cap marked “禧” (Xi) can be exchanged to redeem an exclusive Tiger Beer Mahjong set, and collecting 15 caps marked “猪” (Zhu) will allow consumers to redeem the exclusive Prosperity Bowl set – be sure to keep a look out to start your collection today!

The exclusive Tiger Beer Mahjong sets are also available to be purchased at participating supermarkets during the month of January. With the purchase of three cartons of HEINEKEN Malaysia products - inclusive of one carton of Apple Fox - consumers can own the Tiger Beer Mahjong set for only RM99 while stocks last.
