AirAsia’s Chinese New Year Boy and the Lion

Boy and the Lion

All kids love a lion dance and Chinese New Year is the best time to see them. In a fresh look at this age old tradition, AirAsia brings us this integral part of Chinese New Year celebrations, welcoming the good and keeping away the bad. The Boy and The Lion is seen through the child’s imagination as a young pilot, looking for the lion in the sky. We then see him inside an AirAsia aircraft, en route to his grandmother’s house.

The Boy and The Lion

The story continues with his enjoyment of the intricacies of Chinese New Year tradition. We feel his excitement as he participates in the important reunion dinner and recognise the symbolism of receiving a red packet from his father – giving him the luck he needs to find the lion. Of course, he will specially enjoy the money hiding inside.

The 3-minute video conceptualised by AirAsia’s in-house brand team, depicts Joshua’s excitement travelling to his grandmother’s house for the festival. It was scripted by AirAsia’s in-house brand team.

….. At AirAsia, we want to encourage our flyers to start the new decade with excitement and childlike wonder, letting it light the path to achieve double blessings of abundance, adventure and happiness for the new year. Riad Asmat, AirAsia Malaysia CEO
