In an age when digital clutter and noise is making it harder than ever for brands to be heard, Bank Mandiri used celebrity voice navigation on Waze from Badminton gold medalist and rising star athlete Jonatan “Jojo” Christie to communicate its message in a way that would truly resonate with on-the-go Millennials in Indonesia.
Cutting through the noise and reaching Millennials
Bank Mandiri, one of the largest banks in Indonesia, looked to increase awareness and relevance among Millennials, a high-potential segment for the bank who are saving, investing, and planning for the future.
A familiar voice leads the way
Bank Mandiri needed a way to cut through the noise and stand out from the crowd, especially with a fickle audience. With that in mind, Bank Mandiri teamed up with Waze and Badminton gold medalist Jonatan “Jojo” Christie, a popular figure with local Millennials. With Christie leading the way, Wazers could hear turn by turn directions and integrated brand messages through the voice of a revered personality — driving admiration and awareness for Bank Mandiri.
Partnering with Waze is a fun yet meaningful way for us to engage with the millennials who rely on their mobile devices for everyday needs.

Game, set, match — Mandiri wins!
Throughout the course of the campaigns more than 70K Wazers navigated with Jojo’s voice, clocking close to 500K hours over 8.5M km, or more than 5 hours per day helping Bank Mandiri to break through the noise to connect with Millennials on their journeys. Thanks to this innovative partnership, the campaign was honored with the Bronze Smarties award at MMA Indonesia.
