Seen as a premium yet distant foreign brand, Apple wanted to build deep emotional connection with Chinese consumers in a distinct and meaningful way at CNY. To establish the brand’s human values behind the innovative technology, we celebrated precious family reunion moments through the film “Three Minutes” shot entirely on iPhone X. The film reached 138 million views during the holidays and made headlines as “setting a new standard for advertising.”

Intel Robot Hand X Shadow Play Experience
We invited Master Qin Ligang, the Chinese famous shadow play artist, to let the robot hand “Eagle Shoal” driven by the AI perform shadow play together on the stage of My Future, the first technology variety show by HNTV. We also filmed a documentary and published it online, followed by press releases and KOL social posts. Via this campaign which is full of novelty and entertainment, we bring public attention back to shadow play and seek more possibilities for inheriting and protecting traditional culture. Meanwhile, we change the public's Intel brand perception as the chip manufacturer, it's also the AI technology leading brand with social responsibility.
