Advertising war! in malaysia!

Yeah, i have to say the P1 advertising campaigns are fresh. filled with sexual innuendos? hell yeah!The recently concluded CUT the wires campaign was aimed at wired broadband customers from streamyx. Of course, in malaysia, the lingo of “POTONG” or CUT refers to circumcision, which is mandatory to all muslim boys.


P1 salvo aimed squarely at TM Streamyx broadband (wired) customers...

Well, the campaign was really everywhere. TV, Billboard, magazines,blogs,fb, everything that P1 can stake their logo at! Roughly 3-4 weeks after the campaign, TM finally responded with a tongue in cheek ad, aimed at mocking not only P1 wimax service but also their CEO!

  1. If they only spend the same money on improving their services…

  2. Totally agreed. I almost wanna blog about it. P1 trying to monopolise in Networking Business by asking ppl/existing streamyx users to change to P1.
    Very old and selfish method.

    Malaysia needs variety of Competitors so that it benefit the consumer.
