The Amazing Race: The Impossible GE14 Edition
A group of generous Malaysians took to social media and started a movement that would create history.

A video of Malaysians uniting together in order to get their postal votes reach on time has gone viral on social media.

The 11-minute-long video was posted by Astro Gempak on its YouTube page.
With less than 72 hours to submit their votes, overseas voters were faced with the impossible task of getting their votes back to their polling centres…

The Impossible GE14 Mission video captured the nation’s attention and went viral. With over 1.5 million views, it reached over 3 million unique users and over 1.1 million in engagement in less than 48 hours. The video was also shared by prominent people and groups such as Marina Mahathir, Mukhriz Mahathir, Hannah Yeoh, The Bersih organisation and many more.
