Song Wen went back to consider the deal. He still asked hisfriends about Wind and Rain VCD and Aiwa VCD. He found out that the boss behindthese two brands was a young man. He also found out that this young man wasextremely wealthy and have lots of connections.
If the Little Tigers were to enter the Chinese market, theywould need someone like this to take care of them. This way, the Little Tigerswill not be threatened in China like the previous time.
Although the endorsement fees were lower, if the popularityin China could increase, then they can charge higher endorsement fees for otherproducts. If the Little Tigers could get more endorsement deals in Chinabecause of their increased fame, they will make much more.
Song Wen reported back to his company, and the companyagreed. Even Jackie Chan’s endorsement fees in China were not high, what elsecan they expect for the Little Tigers? Also, Aaron Kwok was more popular thanthe Little Tigers in Hong Kong and China. If Aaron Kwok signed the deal, thenthe Little Tigers will miss this opportunity.
The next day, Song Wen signed the contract with ZhongQingxian. 6 million RMB for a 4 years endorsement contract. The amount will bepaid annually. Each year, the Little Tigers had to film a TV commercial andattend a promotional event. There were also print ads. The pictures of theLittle Tigers will also be printed on Lehaha’s milk tea paper cups.
Hmmm, the promotional event could be held at Tai HuaSupermarkets. The returns will be doubled. This was a great deal!
The female actress was also a young female artiste from TheLittle Tigers’ agency. Her fees were much cheaper. It was only 50,000 RMB peryear, and the contract duration was 4 years.
Feng Yu could not remember what happened to this femaleartiste in the future. That means she did not make it big in the future. So,there was no need to sign a long term contract with her.
After the issue of spokesperson was settled, they started tolook for people to film the commercial. The paper cups were also redesigned.
Feng Yu looked at the new paper cups. There was a picture ofthe Little Tigers with a cup of milk tea each, offering to the girl. The girlhad a shy look on her face.
Yes. This picture looks good. Every girl will wish they werethe girl in the picture. Even if only young female consumers like to drink thistea, the sales will not be low. Furthermore, this female artiste was young andpretty. She will be able to attract many young male consumers.
The filming for thecommercial started, and Feng Yu gave some suggestions. There was a storyline inthis commercial. 3 boys were wooing a young girl. But they should not befoolish looking. One of them should act attentive, one should try to be cool,and one should look shy. The 3 of them should not be running after the girlwith a cup of milk tea each.
There should also be several versions of the commercial andthey will pick the best footages to edit.
During filming, Feng Yu brought Li Na to the set. Li Na hadalways wanted to meet the Little Tigers. Today was the day where her wish cometrue.
When Li Na heard that she will be meeting the Little Tigers,she immediately skips school. Li Na also called Zhang Han to tell her about it.In the end, Zhang Han and Wen Dongjun also tag along.
“You invited the Little Tigers over? What commercial are youfilming? Is it for the cars?”
“Milk tea? What is that? Does it taste good?” Wen Dongjunimmediately asked.
“It should taste not bad. But it is still not produced yet.The cups they are holding are all empty cups.”
Wen Dongjun had a disappointed look on his face when Feng Yusaid that. It was a torture for him to not taste the milk tea after hearing it.
“Cut! Ok. It’s a wrap!” The director shouted.
The workers start to pack the lights and props. Wen Dongjunwas the first to run over. “Handsome Tiger, I really like you!”
Zhang Han grabbed Wen Dongjun and pulled him behind. He wasan embarrassment to them. Wen Dongjun was facing Thunder Tiger when he saidthat!
Luckily, the 3 members of Little Tigers were about the sameage as Wen Dongjun and the rest, and they were artists. They will not get angrywith their fans. They just treat it as a joke.
“Mr. Feng, your script for this commercial is veryinteresting. I am thinking of going into acting in the future.” Well-behavedtiger said.
“You will be able to act in a top-rated drama, like QiongYao dramas, in the future.” Feng Yu said with an ‘I know you will make it big’look on his face.
Without Well-behaved tiger acting in <My FairPrincess>, the drama would not be as exciting. Although Well-behaved tigerwas still young, his role in the drama was likable by many viewers.
“Thank you for your kind words.”
“Feng Yu, can you let us take a picture with them?” WenDongjun shouted.
“Photographer, can you help us take a picture?” Feng Yuwaved to a photographer at the set.
Feng Yu was the boss, and the photographer did not dare toreject him. He immediately ran over. But he held the camera for a while withoutpressing the shutter.
“Sir, you are too tall. The picture will look weird. Can youdo a half squat?”
Wen Dongjun pointed to himself. Me? Half squat? Damn! All Iwanted was a picture with the Little Tigers, and I still need to squat down? Isit my fault for being tall?
Feng Yu tried to hold back his laughter. Who ask you to eatso much and grow so tall? Serve you, right!
Li Na and the rest were not those crazy die-hard fans FengYu saw in his previous life. Although they were happy to meet their idols,there was not screaming or grabbing.
Feng Yu looked at the 3 members of the Little Tigers duringthe photo taking. They were well behaved, and their eyes were clear. Feng Yuwas satisfied with them. If anyone of them had designs on Li Na, he would nothold back!
Feng Yu invited everyone to have dinner together, and theLittle Tigers agreed. Li Na and the rest were overjoyed. They could chat withtheir idols longer.
During dinner, Li Na asked softly: “Can we hear you singnow?”
The Little Tigers looked at each other and then look attheir manager, Song Wen. Song Wen nodded. This question was considered veryrude because it will lower their status. But they could tell Li Na did not haveany ill intentions and Feng Yu was around.
The Little Tigers sang <Love>. They did not dance andjust sang. Feng Yu got to admit that these 3 Tigers had good vocals.
Feng Yu suddenly remembered a song. This song was mostsuitable to be the song for the commercial and suits the Little Tigers’ vocals.
“I suddenly remember a song I composed a few days ago. It isa song that suits you all. I will give this song to you all.”
When Feng Yu said this, the 3 members of the Little Tigerscould feel Feng Yu was trying to take care of them. But the song? Their songswere given to them from their company and were carefully selected fromthousands of songs. Song Wen gave a look to the Little Tigers. No matter whatManager Feng’s song was, they must praise it. They must not let Manager Fengfeel embarrassed.
If this song was nothing special, then they can send it tosome famous composer to edit it slightly and record it in their next album. Butif the song really sucks, then Song Wen will have to fend it off. The LittleTigers could not refuse, and their manager had to step in and be the bad guy.
“You compose another song?” Li Na’s eyes were shining likelittle stars.
Another? The Little Tigers looked at each other. It can’tbe. This Manager Feng had composed songs before? The song he wrote was good?They could tell it from Li Na’s eyes. Even when Li Na first met them, she didnot have this worship look in her eyes.
“Yes. I have written it for you. But I do not have a guitarwith me. So, I will just sing it straight.” Feng Yu looked at Li Na with lovingeyes.
