A PROPERTY agent will spend five days in New York living the life of his favourite superhero through a contest organised by Antabax, the official sponsor of the Amazing Spider-Man 2.
The “Live Like Spider-Man” contest had thousands hoping to win the money-can’t-buy experience valued at RM50,000.
Wong Chee Wing, 34, was chosen based on the strength of his slogan and his ability to rally friends to his cause.
Wong will undergo training at a top secret academy to master Spidey’s skills. He will work with elite trainers to learn a blend of Parkour, Capoeira, acrobatics and stunt work.
Once trained, he will have the opportunity to head to New York to demonstrate his skills in Times Square.
The entire experience will be captured on film.
“I have always loved Spider-Man and I have been using Antabax for years, so when I saw the contest online, I went all out to win by working hard on the slogan. I have never been to New York and I look forward to making Antabax and Malaysia proud,” said Wong.
The second and third place winners were Ahmad Izuandy, 33, from Grik, Perak and Leeanne Siong, a 21-year-old student from Petaling Jaya. They each won RM1,000 and an Antabax product hampers.
Antabax had organised various promotional activities with product giveaways, Spidey movie marathons, mascot appearances at shopping centres and special product promotions leading up to the premiere of the movie.
Lam Soon Edible Oils Sdn Bhd household and personal care division general manager Francis Ng said, the similarities between Antabax and the Amazing Spider-Man added a new dimension to this sponsorship.
“While Spider-Man is committed to fighting crime, Antabax is committed to fighting germs and to protect and care for users,” said Ng.
