Besides the food and public holidays, there’s one other thing that Malaysians look forward to every time a festive season comes around—the creative advertisements by some of Malaysia’s major corporations.
And Deepavali this year is no exception.
Petronas, who has been long known for their festive advertisements (especially the ones directed by the late Yasmin Ahmad), and Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) recently released their festive greeting videos. And both have won over our hearts.
Petronas’ video, Monochrome, centres on Naresh, a young boy who’s afraid that his father won’t accept what he’s passionate about, not realising that his parents love him no matter what.
Meanwhile, TNB’s video, Kurumbu Kudumbam, tells the story of Ramesh, a young man celebrating Deepavali at his wife’s hometown for the first time.
Watch both videos below!
Talk about hitting us right in the feels! Happy Deepavali, everyone!
