MSIG launches an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure film in its latest ‘Help Me Leh’ campaign
MSIG Singapore’s latest marketing campaign lets consumers decide on what happens to the lead character in an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure film.
Titled ‘Help Me Leh’, the film follows the various decisions that its male protagonist, Chris, has to make as he finds himself in sticky situations involving the two important women in his life – his mum and his wife. It is a story that many couples can relate to easily and empathise with the lead character. The content is delivered in localised humour to introduce the topic of insurance without it being too serious.
“Videos are often created as a one-way communication. Here, our viewers get to decide on how the story will play out which makes it more engaging for them to watch on. The unique storytelling format also helps to bring better recall as they are in control of the character’s decisions,” said Mr. Steven Leong, Senior Vice-President, Consumer and Digital Distribution, MSIG Singapore.
As the campaign title suggests, viewers are asked to make the choices for Chris’ life. At each open-ended scene, Chris will appeal for viewers’ help before the next turn in the story. With seven major storylines, the unexpected ending of each plot helps to contextualise the importance of general insurance protection as the story unfolds, according to the viewer’s choice. At the end of each story, there are also bite-sized tips to help viewers better understand what insurance covers.
To reward viewers for completing all seven stories, MSIG is giving away $5,000 worth of prizes in a sure-win rewards program. Each participant is entitled to a reward comprising of either S$50 shopping vouchers or an exclusive promotional code for selected MSIG products.

“As we move through life, general insurance helps to provide a financial safety net so we can take care of our loved ones beyond the material and financial things in life. Making the right choice with the right insurance protection, can make a difference to your situation. Our latest marketing campaign seeks to bring across this message in a light-hearted manner and has anchored it creatively through an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure film,” Mr. Leong added.
