MullenLowe Singapore has been selected to develop the next Graciousness on Public Transport campaign for Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA), following a competitive pitch,
The campaign will feature iconic characters including Stand-Up Stacey, Move-In Martin, Give-Way Glenda, Bag-Down Benny and Hush-Hush Hannah of the Thoughtful Bunch, the annual campaign reminds and nudges commuters to take action to spread graciousness for a more pleasant everyday journey across the country’s MRT network. MullenLowe Singapore has been tasked with developing the latest iteration of the popular campaign.
“The annual Graciousness on Public Transport Campaign started in 2009 to promote acts of thoughtful behavior on public transport, such as giving up seats, queueing in an orderly manner, and moving in for a more pleasant commute. These characters are just like the everyday commuter, trying to do the right thing to make the travel experience on public transport more pleasant.”
Paul Soon, CEO MullenLowe Singapore added, “It is always exciting to have the opportunity to work on Singapore icons like the Thoughtful Bunch, who through the years have developed a close affinity and relationship with all who live and commute in Singapore. We intend to continue to build on what has already been so successfully nurtured by Agnes and her team by extending the emotions that all Singaporeans should feel when they take the steps to be thoughtful.”
The campaign will launch in the 3rd quarter of this year and will run for 6 months island-wide, across out-of-home, digital, and social.
