Carlsberg wishes all a Smoother Year and Longevity this Chinese New Year with limited edition cans, collectibles and up to RM888 Ang Pau
SHAH ALAM, 28 December 2021 – As Malaysians resiliently navigate back to normalcy after being impacted by the pandemic and floods, Carlsberg Malaysia wishes to lift their spirits by delivering smoothness and longevity through its ‘Coming Together for a Smoother Year’ 2022 Chinese New Year (CNY) campaign.
As a brand that promises quality and innovation for every occasion, Carlsberg’s intuitive festive campaigns bring together consumers with moments and celebrations that resonate across all walks of life. This coming CNY campaign is no different as it aims to bring families, friends and dear ones far or apart together in celebration of a better year ahead.
Aspiring to be Probably The Best Beer, Carlsberg is ushering in the annual festival with limited-edition CNY cans that accentuates the essence of ‘smoothness’ and ‘longevity’. True to the brand’s CNY tradition, the creative concept behind the beautifully designed Carlsberg Danish Pilsner and Carlsberg Smooth Draught cans exquisitely combines the modern identity of Carlsberg with traditional Chinese auspicious icons to wish beer consumers a year of smoothness, longevity, and prosperity.
Complementing the Carlsberg Danish Pilsner’s iconic green can is the Chinese character ‘Fu’ [福] emboldened in gold against a rich red background to celebrate wellbeing and abundance which transcends a healthy, happy and auspicious life.
Wrapped around the silver and white Carlsberg Smooth Draught can on the other hand is a symbol of smoothness in the form of ancient Chinese Treasure ships, portraying smooth sailing and prosperous times ahead.
The prominence of the colour red and gold on both the limited-edition cans and 24-can festive packaging magnify the festive spirit and exudes auspiciousness, which is Carlsberg’s way of wishing everyone a year of smoothness and longevity. Both the limited-edition cans are beautifully designed and curated in collaboration with the World’s No.1 expert in Feng Shui and Chinese Metaphysics, Dato’ Joey Yap. His signature is featured across all Carlsberg’s CNY festive packaging whilst his readings on each Zodiac fortune are also featured exclusively on Carlsberg’s playing cards.
“As we usher in the new year, we want to uplift spirits and encourage all our consumers to look forward with optimism and positivity. It’s been a while since we’ve been able to meet-up, catch-up and look ahead with joy and cheer. We hope that our campaign themed ‘Coming together for a smoother year’ encourages consumers to stay positive in embracing a smooth sailing year ahead and a long and healthy life. Together we will prosper and emerge stronger,” said Stefano Clini, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia.
