This is no different in the case of Malaysia Airlines who’s last Hari Raya ad, “Boleh Adik Ikut?” was very well received by netizens. The ad featured an adorable little girl trying various ways to of convincing her parents to bring her pet cat back to her ‘kampung’.

To date, the video has revived over 2 million views on YouTube and in response to that the airline recently released a follow up to the video with a message of thanks.

“Thanks to the overwhelming response and requests, we are releasing the official song from Adik, the Malaysia Airlines’ Raya 2016 video.We hope you enjoy an exclusive peek behind-the-scenes with the Jellybean and the cast and crew.”

The message on the airline’s official YouTube page read along with a karaoke version of the song, ‘Takkan Berpisah’ featured in their Raya ad.
