Gong Xi Fa Cai! May the year of Wood Horse brings much joy, love and peace. Chinese New Year is my favourite festive season. It is the time when friends and families reunite. The long break also allows me to be a potato couch, munching on my favorite CNY snacks while watching the many interesting, funny, touching and heart warming CNY TV commercials.
I decided to compile 3 of my favourite Chinese New Year commercials and video ads for this year. Some of them are funny, some will make you reflect on yourselves and some is really convincing in selling their products.
1. PETRONAS “Young Hearts”
Petronas’s TVC inspires us to hold true to our values, appreciate our rich culture and the importance of family ties. We should always look at life with a young heart, and to be enthusiastic no matter how old we are.
2. KIA “Happy Chinese New Year 2014″
This year, KIA’s commercial is directed by funnyman Douglas Lim and the outcome was hilarious! However, they have really highlighted KIA’s new family like care program really well.
3) YORK Malaysia “God of Prosperity”
This is a really funny and creative ad. I especially like the tagline towards the end of the commercial – the prosperity god is here to stay when you have York at home!
We have just suffered a seven hour drive back to Kuala Terengganu today. The drive could be more comfortable if we are driving a better family car. Since we are in the midst of looking for a new family car, KIA’s new family like care programme really attracted us. They offer free car wash after every service process, multi point inspection which is a full vehicle health check everytime you send your car for service and there is even a new vehicle hand over policy – from day 1, kia service staff will keep you informed about your vehicle as well as any services that it undergoes.
