Ad Nut has much admiration for the multi-talented and dutiful daughters-in-law in what appears to be a big-budget period piece for eletricity utility Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) by Leo Burnett.

Two of the three daughters-in-law certainly have the looks and moves to please the most fearsome mother-in-law. But as this video shows, fear not if you are a kitchen noob. There are video tutorials for the adventurous, and if all else fails, food delivery is just a click or phone call away.

TNB earlier launched two teaser videos to give viewers a glimpse of the proverbial dragon-mother-in-law...

...and her hen-pecked husband.
