1. Air Asia – This one really tugs at the heartstrings, we follow the journey of a single dad taking care of his daughter from her first day at a kindergarten to sending her off to the airport embarking on her new career as a stewardess.

2. Digi – “What did the chicken get for his exam? EGG-cellent!” Dad jokes, so bad their actually good. Using the winning combination of cute kids telling jokes in front of the camera, Digi launched a YouTube video titled ‘Kids tell #EpicDadJokes’.

3. Grab- Can you imagine if grab added helicopters for us to book on demand? The start up made this dream a reality in its latest father’s day contest by offering 15 lucky winners a free helicopter ride around KL city.
