The 13-member K-pop group also stars in Lazada’s latest 11.11 short film, which transports the Lazada Happiness Ambassadors into Lazada World, a dynamic and fantastical realm filled with larger-than-life everyday objects and exclusive 11.11 rewards. Playfully dancing along to a special rendition of global hit song “Low” by Flo Rida, SEVENTEEN embarks on an adventure filled with surprising discoveries at every turn.
Speaking as a group, SEVENTEEN said, “Shooting Lazada’s 11.11 film was a fun and refreshing experience, and we are excited to be a part of the upcoming Lazada 11.11 Super Show. As the regional Happiness Ambassadors for Southeast Asia’s leading eCommerce platform Lazada, we look forward to create even more meaningful experiences with everyone. Please continue to show support and love for Lazada and SEVENTEEN!”
In the Lazada 11.11 short film, Lazada’s pioneer brand ambassador and beloved mascot, Lazzie, makes a special cameo dancing the iconic shuffle moves alongside SEVENTEEN, sporting a new, refreshed look with blue and purple hues for their mane and an adorable snout in the shape of Lazada’s iconic heart-gram.
Lazada will also launch a region-wide TikTok Hashtag Challenge, inviting consumers to join in a fun and creative showcase by curating their own version of the shuffle dance moves from the Lazada’s 11.11 film in a freestyle 20-second TikTok dance video.
