and celebrate Hari Gawai.
There is a touch of comedy weaved into a powerful message of togetherness, when the four friends help Anang bring a buffalo named Jojo to the padi fields.
“Anang and her friends discover the values and meaning of determination, hard work and gratitude, which encapsulate the true meaning of the Harvest Festival, after Anang’s grandfather asks the children to take the buffalo to the padi field.
“The friends learned valuable lessons, to always appreciate blessings and never take for granted the hard work of others that have allowed them to enjoy such blessings,” said Petronas group strategic communications senior general manager Zahariah Abdul Rahman at the preview of the film recently.
She said Petronas, which has been releasing Gawai- and Kaamatan-themed advertisements for several years, wanted to highlight and uphold the values that binded Malaysians as a nation in every of its web film released for festive celebrations.
“We have started sharing this key message of striving for a better tomorrow together since our Chinese New Year’s campaign through the short film, It Came From a Tin Mine.
“And we will continue to promote and nurture this spirit in this short film, Siapa Jojo?, and other web films for other festive celebrations this year.
“Viewers will see the same five characters in our web films throughout the year.”
The Siapa Jojo? web film is available on Petronas’ official channel at www.petronasofficial.com, while the 60-second television commercial version of the web film will start airing on May 30.
