Those of us who thought TikTok was primarily about Korean singing cats are in for a spot of re-education in Lucky Generals’ first campaign for the all-conquering Chinese social media site.
The Yorkshire Tea agency seems to return to its favourite county with a tale of ordinary folk changing their lives via TikTok – ‘It Starts on TikTok.’
So in the multi-media campaign there’s Russ aka @hardestgeezer, currently running the length of Africa for charity on TikTok, and Nik aka @madewithmudpottery, a potter who makes ‘dignity mugs’ for people with special needs among the TikTok creators featured. No mention of data-gathering as far as we can see, it’s all very wholesome.
Head of marketing Harry Wilson says: “TikTok is a place to be inspired and discover new things. Every day, our community prove that a dose of inspiration can go a long way. It Starts on TikTok is about celebrating the extraordinary moments that spark when communities come together.
“We hope this campaign inspires people to discover a new hobby, search for that recipe or even turn their passion into a career. We have loved bringing It Starts on TikTok to life with Lucky Generals.”
TikTok as ‘Last of the Summer Wine,’ now there’s a thing. But Lucky Generals just about pulls it off.
MAA creative scale: 6.5.
