Take it from Jero the cat: Distance can't prevent togetherness

Reprise Digital's Ramadan film for Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) is a bit different this year, but no less sweet.

See the above video with some subtitles here.

Ramadan films from Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) in past years have tended toward high concepts and lots of effects. This year's entry from Malaysia's electric company, titled #SemangatRayaEpikFantastik, is for obvious reasons a different type of video. But the message perhaps comes through more clearly because of the change in form, which accentuates the ability to be together in spirit no matter the circumstances. 

One element that remains constant is the presence of Jero the cat, who has been a regular in TNB’s festive films for four years. There's also a singalong video.

Ad Nut gathers ads from all over Asia and the world for your viewing pleasure, because Ad Nut loves you.
