Since its founding in 2017, myTukar has grown to encompass 2,600 registered dealerships, 10 retail centres, 23 inspection centres, 5 workshops and 2 refurbishment centres.
Everyone loves a good drama. But only if they’re watching it. And that’s why myTukar is ensuring that the theatrics are only happening on-screen and never in real life, in 3 digital shorts that tap into typical drama cliches with some… not so typical endings.
Look forward to a makjang Korean family drama about a son’s true love and his unaccepting mother; then switch it up with a classic Thai horror tale that will have you screaming in fear once you find out what’s really, truly hiding in plain sight in the garage; and lastly, finish it off with a Hong Kong love triangle that has you wondering if the female lead will end up choosing what’s really best for her.
By tapping into our audience’s love for drama, we disguised our ads as genre films to let them know that any drama you get from our brand is strictly advertorial. For quality used cars that are fuss-free (and drama-free!) and As Good As New, myTukar is the number one choice.Katherine Teo, Carro Regional Head of Marketing
The 3 digital shorts are the result of a multinational effort.
They were fully shot on location in Malaysia, with teams from Singapore and Malaysia working on it, as well as a native cast and crew who flew in from Thailand and South Korea.
Since its founding in 2017, myTukar has grown from a shop lot at Glenmarie and has expanded to over 2,600 registered dealerships, 10 retail centres, 23 inspection centres, 5 workshops and 2 refurbishment centres.
myTukar also achieved an impressive year-on-year revenue growth of 85% in 2022, coupled with an astounding 215% growth in their retail sector.
It’s been an absolute honour to grow together with the company and to build a marketplace powerhouse that isn’t just about buying and selling cars – but one that includes key offerings within the car ownership lifecycle, such as aftersales, insurance, financing, and extended warranties. We’ll continue to place our customer’s interests first above all and I’m excited to scale up our capabilities.Derrick Eng, myTukar CEO
