During festive seasons, many heart-warming videos churned out by
wealthy well-meaning corporate companies can be seen on the TV or being shared on social media platforms. The common themes of CNY videos are mostly based on long awaited family reunions and other sentimental stories that often feature people of the older generation with touching story plot. These CNY videos are usually aimed to tug at our heart strings and make us go ‘awwww’, as we think about our own families and friends.
Well, I for one have had enough of that.
Instead of watching videos that will make us overly emotional and teary eyed because of some completely fictional characters, here are some locally made CNY videos that is made with a lighter touch to tickle you silly.
1. Tenaga Nasional Berhad (2014)
2. Unilever Homecare (2015)
Fun fact: The 2 main characters in this video, Benji and Uncle Chuan are actors from Malaysia’s highest grossing hit film, “The Journey” which has a gross of RM7.6 million!
3. Prime Minister CNY Wishes (2013)
If this doesn’t crack you up, I don’t know what will.
When the PM comes to bai nian, you know it’s a bigger deal than Cai Shen Ye himself.
4. Hotlink (2015)
When your aunties and grannies go all ‘Iggy Azalea’ on you.
5. Digi (2011)
What’s funnier than 1 yellow man? Why, a whole family of them, of course.

There’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition, right?
