FCB Kuala Lumpur and RHB Bank celebrate Malaysia's Merdeka Day with a rap music video

RHB.jpgFollowing the success of the "Apa yang di tunggu- tunggu setiap kali Raya" film that garnered over 5 million views, FCB Kuala Lumpur and RHB Bank have continued their collaboration with a new film to celebrate the country's Merdeka Day.

Titled,"RHB Syukur Merdeka" the film is done in a style of a music video and blends together local rap sensation Altimet's hit song '"Syukur" (Grateful) with scenes of the nation's progress. Its upbeat and catchy delivery was deliberately designed to appeal and foster appreciation in Merdeka amongst Millennial Malaysians. Released on RHB's Facebook page three days ago the film has already garnered over 300,000 views and a host of positive reviews from Malaysians.

As part of the campaign, Malaysians were asked to contribute lyrics by sharing on Facebook what they are thankful for as Malaysians. Over a 1,000 submissions were received in the four days after the call for submissions were made earlier this month.

"We too are 'Syukur' for the opportunity to shake things up with RHB and create work that's both fresh for category and relevant for the current sentiment towards Merdeka," said FCB's Syed Ferohaizal, Associate Creative Director and Syahriza Badron, Senior Account Director.
