When it came to looking out for each other in the months gone by, we found that Facebook was a vehicle. People were the fuel. This is the simple truth the campaign tries to capture. When times are tough, we truly can do more together than we can alone.
Executive Creative Director, Taproot Dentsu
At the core of this campaign is our brand belief that people can do more together than alone. Through this campaign, we are shining a spotlight on the real stories that have inspired us, and hope more and more of our consumers will recognise that people are indeed each other’s best resources. Sometimes all you need to do is reach out to the world.

When the going gets tough, the tough think of innovative ways to overcome adversities; then film and upload them to inspire others. With a little encouragement from Budweiser of course. This was the premise behind our online activation to find the kings who are ‘ruling the new’. Till date, we’ve received thousands of entries.
Creative Director and Partner, Animal
The ‘Rule The New’ initiative ensures that our partners and patrons are aware of, and well-equipped, with hacks to effectively conquer the new normal safely. We are delighted with the overwhelming response garnered till date, and the absolute creativity of each hack only re-instils our belief that together we will emerge triumphant.
