Certainly one of the most touching CNY ads I have seen so far
Barely 48 hours after being uploaded, a video in conjunction with the upcoming Chinese New Year festival - with a Kelantan touch - is making waves on the internet.
The heart-warming video produced by RealArt, tells the story of a nasi lauk (a popular Kelantan dish) seller Kak Ton, whose son, Mat had died of cancer.
Suffice it to say that Mat had left a touching note, lest we spoil it for you.
The video was earlier shared on the Facebook pages of Harakahdaily and PAS Murshidul Am Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Nik Mat, and attracted more than 3,000 'like' clicks.
“This is certainly the best video I have ever seen. Why can’t our television channel produce something like that?” writes one.
“(This one) beats all Petronas festive advertisements,” said another, referring to the company's penchant for long festival TV ads.
“This is the 1Malaysia we are looking for,” says one.
Despite receiving 99 percent approvals from viewers, there are also some who feel it was unrealistic.
One viewer describs the video as a wake-up call.
“I'm going to teach my friends and family that right way, respect each other every religion and every race. A negative thought does not bring u anywhere but a positive ones will. If you think this is an imaginary video then for you it will always, always be only an imaginary video.
"To change the world, in this case Malaysia, we need to think positively, that's the first giant step.”
