During every holiday we enjoy watching the best of the festive adverts, that have become more like an art form rather than just ads. We think they should be heartwarming but not heart-breaking, beautifully made and capture something essential about life in Malaysia now or in the psat. This year, these Raya ads made it through our strict criteria!
This beautiful clip draws a lovely analogy between life and the samping. “To tie the samping, you need another pair of hands”. And who can resist a grandpa-granson duo like this.!
DBKL Janji Amin
It looks like a heart-breaker but all ends well. This one has some cool footage from the traffic control room, creating a striking contrast to the kampung.
Mudah – Goodbuy Good Buy
In the age of konmari and selling and buying online, we can all relate to this story line that resembles Toy Story.
Petronas Misi Riuh Raya
Petronas stays true to its reputation as the producer of beautiful festive ads. This Raya you can keep your tissues in the box and enjoy the jolly family preparations.
Raya Chin by MStar
This one apparently has gone viral but left us wondering. Is this the norm at the workplace? Perhaps with a bit better communication things would have been a lot better?
