Cathay’s first global campaign in three years is a celebration of humanity’s innate urge to move, starting from our very first heartbeat. Called ‘Feels Good To Move’, every piece of content is an irresistible call to get moving.
Created by Publicis Groupe Hong Kong, ‘Feels Good To Move’ consists of a diverse content system where each touchpoint is fuelled by energetic and playful observations about how much we humans love moving – this very fact is the reason for being for the entire travel lifestyle industry globally. It kicks off with a film that explores how good it feels to move in all situations in life, big and small, set to a cover of Junior Senior’s classic track ‘Move Your Feet’ and directed by Pierre Dupaquier (We Are From LA).
Edward Bell, General Manager of Brand, Insights, Marketing at Cathay, says: “‘Feels Good To Move’ goes straight to the heart of why Cathay exists as a premium travel lifestyle brand – a brand that aims to enable us to live the premium travel lifestyle, every day. Since our beginnings, Cathay has always been about forward progress. Restlessness is in our DNA. This campaign is a celebration of how good it feels to move.”
Natalie Lam, Chief Creative Officer at Publicis Groupe APAC, adds: “We’re all born with a restless urge to move, never truly staying still even if we're supposed to. Rolling around in our mother’s belly, restlessly waiting for class to be over, those moments where it feels good to shake a little in a yoga class, just because staying completely still is against human instincts. Thinking about the next move in life, or dreaming of the next trip, when you’re still enjoying the current one… This urge to move is exactly why we travel, how we make progress, and why a world-class brand like Cathay exists in the first place, and keeps progressing — to facilitate humanity’s urge to move forward.
“This global brand campaign is an amazing opportunity to defy the category clichés of beautiful destinations and travelers, and look back into the very reason why humans want to move — simply because it feels good. We are very excited to bring a new way of looking at airline creativity together with our brave clients at Cathay.”
Cathay will soon invite people to capture big and small #FeelsGoodToMove moments in Hong Kong, a city that never stops moving. The most beautiful moments (and movements) will be broadcast on the streets of Hong Kong and across Cathay’s social channels.
