OUR BRAND STORY
LOL! You actually clicked to find out more about us at HEPMIL!
To be honest, nobody imagined that a funny SGAG meme, first created about McDonald's curry sauce shortage by two bored
twenty-somethings, would become what HEPMIL is today.
Over the years, the dream to bring LOLs to even more people has seen the HEPMIL family expand regionally, into Malaysia with MGAG, in 2015, as well as the Philippines with PGAG, in 2017. Those early meme days have now too massively evolved to encompass video, talent management, e-commerce, and even research.
Beyond that, the dream to empower and support more content creators, with the knowledge HEPMIL built over the years grew. So in 2020,
Hepmil Creators’ Network was launched. Today, we have some of the most exciting TikTok talents across the region under our network and counting.
The journey has been incredible, and there’s no denying how much more incredible it can be in the years to come. So here’s to bringing more LOLs, more entertainment, and more joy, to the everyday person like you and me, through the good times, and bad.
To those of you who stayed on and read till this part, wow thanks! Here’s a bonus fun fact since many have asked – What does HEPMIL actually mean? Is it, ‘HELP MI’ spelt differently? Does it mean, ‘HEP piness to MIL-lions of people?’ Nah, here’s a clue: Read it backwards!
Keep LOL-ing always,
