There's nothing better than the original. And Jacob's Original Cream Crackers are as OG as it gets!

With Hari Kebangsaan just around the corner, Jacob's is celebrating the real OGs of Malaysia in this sweet ad, and we love it:

Showcasing the best of Malaysian originators, you're definitely gonna get all your patriotic feels flowing

1. There's nothing quite like hearing Tunku Abdul Rahman chanting "Merdeka!"

More fondly known as Bapa Kemerdekaan, or the Father of Independence, Tunku Abdul Rahman was Malaysia's very first Prime Minister! After fostering a deal with the British colonial powers at the time, Malaya had gained independence on 31 August, 1957. He also presided as Prime Minister during the formation of Malaysia in 1963!

2. Nicol David, the squash queen who united a nation with her unparalleled finesse in the court

Propelling to global fame in 2006 after being named the World's Number 1 female squash player, Nicol David is also known as the longest reigning Number 1 ever, totalling a whopping 112 months. Nicol David is also an eight-time World Champion and five-time British Open Champion.

3. P. Ramlee graced our silver screens with his singing, dancing, and acting throughout Malaysia and the rest of Southeast Asia!

Regarded as one of the most prominent icons of Malay entertainment, P. Ramlee is a very familiar and respected name in any Malaysian household. He first graced the silver screen in the year 1948 in 'Chinta', a Singapore-based romantic drama directed by B.S. Rajhans. 

Ramlee was among the most popular actors in Asia, with his fandom even spanning as far as Indonesia, Thailand, and Japan! 

4. Farah Ann showed the world that Malaysia had what it took to compete against the very best in Artistic Gymnastics

Farah Ann Abdul Hadi has become more of a recent icon in Malaysia, representing our nation on the world stage in artistic gymnastics. Having bagged one gold, one silver, and two bronze medals at the Ukraine International Cup earlier this year, Farah Ann is a formidable opponent for anyone in the gymnastics world, especially in Southeast Asia.

5. There's no fear like the one pimps and drug pushers had of A. Chandramalar - Malaysia's badass, super-cop Woman of Steel

Chandramalar became the first woman in Malaysian history to attain the role of Deputy Commissioner of Police. She led her own task force in various raids on drug dens and prostitution rings, often known for her signature move of knocking down the front doors of various crime establishments with just one kick!

At times, she would even go undercover in gambling circles and brothels to really get up close and personal with the criminals she was destined to arrest.
