Using City Culture to Sell Noodles – Mysterious Chongqing

As the idea of localisation builds in China, brands are starting to leverage China’s famous city cultures.  Both Chongqing and Chengdu, both huge cities in the South-west have started this trend, due to their spicy food, unique wildlife and reputation for enjoying life.

Recently, Uni-President (统一) launched a interesting culture-based Campaign to launch a new “Sharing a City” packaging promotion for noodles.  The campaign focussed on post-modern narrative of travelling and exposing the city of Chongqing – a location known for being spontaneous and passionate.   Using a creative concept of city map, the campaign presented Chongqing as a place best navigated through your senses and emotions.

To promote the video-based campaign, Uni-President launched a series of online posters based the theme of “exploding your visual perspective”  (嗨爆你的眼球).  See below.

The wonderfully eclecletic world of Chongqing city

The noodles are the hero, as they bring together a guy and girl through a series of serendipitous moments, all created by the irresistible fragrance of the fresh noodles.  The cast is chaotic, and very Chongqing, giant pandas, crazy fish, flirtatious locals, trams, mountains … all shot together through clay-based stop animation.

Great to see the richness of local city cultures being expressed by brands.  Localisation is on the rise again in China, a natural expression of China’s rich and diverse culture, as the mega-nation finds its feet, and has the confidence to tell the wonderful little stories as well as the big ones.

Take a look at this very creative campaign
