DOUBLE A PAPER PARTNERSHIP WITH PARAMOUNT PICTURES ROLLS OUT FOR TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON
Double A is rolling out and transforming how consumers see the premium copy paper brand with a new television commercial (TVC) produced and directed by Michael Bay, which features scenes and characters from Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
The TVC is part of the brand’s international partnership with Paramount Pictures’ theatrical release for the the third Transformers movie which includes Double A integration in the movie, the film-themed TVC and an integrated marketing campaign.
Bay will bring his experience as an award-winning commercial director to the TVC – entitled “Transforming Paper” – which will premiere in Malaysia in July 2011, simultaneously with Australia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and UAE.
Double A will also be launching a fully integrated national multimillion dollar campaign encompassing broadcast advertising, on-line content and outdoor media.
“The action-filled TV spot emphasises the high standard performance and qualities of Double A, while cuts and characters from Transformers: Dark of the Moon magnify the thrill. Working with Double A is such a great pleasure and I’m extremely satisfied with the outcome,” said Bay.
Double A Senior Executive Vice President, Thirawit Leetavorn said “The Transforming Paper TVC challenges the way people see copy paper and Double A will set a new benchmark with its high performance and ‘No Jam, No Stress’ qualities,” adding that “Double A is thrilled to collaborate with Paramount Pictures and Michael Bay. It’s an enormous opportunity for Double A to step onto the world stage.”
TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON is the third instalment in the TRANSFORMERS film series and will premiere in Malaysia on 29 June 2011, exclusively in cinemas.
