Cathay's 'Let's Get Moving ;P' Campaign Celebrates Hong Kongers' Unique Love for Keepsakes

Cathay's 'Let's Get Moving ;P' Campaign Celebrates Hong Kongers' Unique Love for Keepsakes

As travelers return to the skies, Cathay is celebrating with a campaign called ‘Let’s Get Moving ;P’, which gives a gentle wink to Hong Kongers’ unique quirk of keepsaking. 

From slippers to pens, it’s no secret that many people in Hong Kong have Cathay-branded items in their homes as treasured reminders of past travels. This phenomenon happens for two reasons: Hong Kongers genuinely feel proud of the Cathay brand, and Cathay products are so beautifully designed, they’re worth keeping forever.

To inspire people to get moving again, Cathay wanted to celebrate this unshakable bond by using actual data taken from Cathay flights to unearth its most popular branded items – and making them the stars of its new campaign. That eye mask that helped you through jetlagged nights; the deck of cards that broke the ice; the pen that jotted down memories on cloud nine all feature as the airline’s most popular borrowed items in a campaign created by Publicis Groupe Hong Kong.

Edward Bell, General Manager, Brand, Insights and Marketing Communications, explains: “Our research showed that in Hong Kong, many people have some Cathay items tucked away somewhere. We found this encouraging and inspiring as we tend to keep mementos of those things we value and want to remember. So, we decided to build on this and ask all these keepsakes to come to life and encourage us all to ‘Let’s get moving’.”  

Some of Hong Kong’s most renowned influencers and celebrities are now coming clean about their favourite Cathay items, while on social channels, Cathay is inviting Hong Kongers to get their own hoarding stories off their chests. Social content featuring the film’s characters as well as a new line of covetable merchandise are in the works.

“There's a deep bond between Cathay and Hong Kongers over all the trips taken in the past 70 years. Every pen, deck of cards, cup or eye mask we have at home brings us back to the fond memories of each trip. We love the idea of celebrating flying again with this universal truth, telling the story through the lens of these ‘keepsakes’ between the airline and its customers,” says Natalie Lam, Chief Creative Officer, Publicis Groupe APAC & MEA. 

‘Let’s Get Moving ;P’ targets everyone who has a little piece of Cathay at home – wink, wink. It launches in Hong Kong throughout April and May.
