2017 marks a milestone for Malaysia. This year, we celebrate our 60th Merdeka and we host the 29th SEA Games as well. It’s almost a tradition now-the slew of brilliant ads we get to catch during “Merdeka season,” much like how we do during major festivals like Hari Raya, Chinese New Year and Deepavali.
This year, there’s an eclectic mix of ads from different sources-telcos like Celcom, Digi and Maxis; MNCs like Petronas; and even controversial but talented performers like Namewee.
I can tell you this. They’re fantastic. I pick the Top 10, and they’re listed in no particular order.
Emma – Celcom
We Stand United – Digi
RHB Syukur Merdeka x Altimet – RHB
Piala Taman Thomas – Petronas
Sebuah iklan Merdeka 2017 dari Maxis 4G – Maxis
Selamat Hari Kebangsaan – Astro
#JanjiMerdeka, Malaysia’s 60th Merdeka Celebration – MRCB
Merdeka 60th Theme (Ali AhKao dan Muthu) – Namewee/Dato’ David Arumugam/Aniq
OK, technically this isn’t an ad. But it’s so good!
