We take a look at five of the funniest, cutest and most moving Merdeka commercials.

There have been many Merdeka commercials produced over the years in what has become a veritable tradition. In a way, they help us reflect on how far we’ve come as Malaysians and what makes this country what it is, While most have a jingoistic flavour that treats the spirit of nationhood as some of lofty ideal, the best commercials take a different route. Using humour, drama and unexpected points of view, these five win our hearts and inspire our spirits. Have a great 57th Merdeka Day, everyone!
