9 best 2017 Merdeka ads you shouldn’t miss

2017 Merdeka Ads

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

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!
