CB Exclusive: Tiger Beer wants people to 'Sit Closer Together' in latest spot via Marcel Sydney

Screen Shot 2016-12-21 at 10.10.25 AM.jpgCB Exclusive - This month, Tiger Beer makes its own uniquely Asian mark on the global diversity debate with a 90 second film that follows the lives of eight very contrary Asians; a transgender "Kathoey", a champion female Muay Thai boxer, a Comicon fan, a retired man, a millennial, a high-flying entrepreneur, a young delivery guy and a Kung Fu Grandmaster. As bizarrely diverse as the group first appear, they're ultimately united over a shared love for a cold Tiger beer and a plate of street food.

Under the banner Sit Closer Together, the film is scored to the Louis Armstrong US classic "What a wonderful world", but this time reimagined in Mandarin.

Screen Shot 2016-12-21 at 10.10.48 AM.jpgThe film was shot in Thailand and China by The Sweet Shop director, Amos LeBlanc, who this year won the Cannes Young Director of the Year for a second time in a row.

Says David Nobay, Marcel creative chairman and the film's writer: "Tiger wanted to leverage their partnership globally with Asian street food, but do it in a way that said more than a bowl of steaming noodles. For us, what makes the street food table so unique and special is that it's the great leveler. It doesn't matter where you stand on the social ladder, you ultimately sit shoulder to shoulder in the street. Given what a fractured year this has been globally, we believe it's an important message. And a timeless one, too".
