The future of arranged marriage?



( – By: Malati Siniah

Will we finally see a world where ‘Likes’ outweighs values?

A new video going viral is giving netizens a glimpse into this new reality. The 2-minutes film titled ‘Berapa LIKE Kau Ada? shows a conversation in Malay between a mother and father speaking to their daughter on her latest love interest.

The conversation takes an amusing turn when the parents reject their daughter’s choice due to his poor social media presence. I have to admit curiosity got the better of me and halfway through the film I skipped to the end to find out which brand was behind the video.

To my surprise, the film was a promotional video for Publicis One. Earlier this year the agency announced its global move to operate all its brands including Leo Burnett, Arc, Publicis, Saatchi & Saatchi Arachnid and more under one umbrella group. In Malaysia Publicis One is headed by Tan Kien Eng.

The video, posted on Leo Burnett Malaysia’s Facebook page yesterday night has already received 160,163 views and over 3,000 shares.
