PETRONAS has released their heartwarming webfilm for Hari Kebangsaan and Malaysia Day, which shows off Malaysians' strength in diversity <3
It's during these difficult times when we need to be there for each other the most. PETRONAS' video highlights the importance of staying united despite our differences, and to realise that we all carry the same hope for a better Malaysia.
Wanna know what the best part is? It's in the form of a music video, yayy! Titled Demi Cinta, this uplifting song about unity and togetherness is sure to make you beam with pride, and make you feel soo proud to be Malaysian.
Watch the full music video below:
First, we are introduced to the struggles being faced by the characters, which are situations that some of us are all too familiar with :(
From having to shut down their business for good to losing their jobs, they have no choice but to accept this harsh new reality.
The music video further highlights the difficulties faced by those working in the tourism sector, as well as those who are responsible for the wellbeing of their employees
Once again, we can see how the situation has taken a toll not just on employees, but on employers as well. Facing these hardships takes everything we have to keep moving forward, despite the circumstances.
No matter how difficult it gets, we are reminded that we don't have to face these hardships and challenges alone
Together, with our friends and loved ones by our side, our perseverance and determination will ensure a better future, for ourselves as well as the younger generation. Slowly but surely, we can make our way to a better Malaysia. :') As long as we stay united, we can accomplish anything!
The overall message of this heartwarming music video is presented beautifully by Malaysian singing sensation, Vanessa Reynauld :D
In the YouTube video's comment section, Vanessa thanks PETRONAS for giving her the opportunity to work with them on this project.
"I'm so honoured to be a part of this National Day project! I hope all of us can relate to this very touching story. Selamat menyambut Hari Kebangsaan ke-64 to all Malaysians! SELAMAT HARI MALAYSIA!
"Together, we will get through these challenging times because we love Malaysia," she said.
