Malaysian Advertising vs. Australian Advertising

Please wait a little longer as I'm currently Photoshopping the Day 2 Melbourne photos, kay? :)

At the meantime, let's talk about the media in Australia - Advertising :) Ever since I enrolled into a Degree in communication, I become more aware of the advertising and public relations industry, as well as Journalism too.

And I tell you - It seems like Malaysia's best advertisements only show up during festive seasons, ESPECIALLY from Petronas/ Proton, and so on. Overall, there are only a few decent TV commercials that are truly creative. Some only are just being a slideshow to the audiences.

These are Malaysia's best, to me:

Petronas ads in 2007, this is a tribute to the late Yasmin Ahmad.

Wanna take a look at Australia's ads?

Vegemite- One of the top brands here. 

Pink's V8 Supercars ads

These 2 ads will be enough to tell you how competitive the Australian advertising industries are. And most of the other commercials are similar to their formats! Yep, I like the Vegemite ad the most. I might have a chance to taste one tomorrow :) 

P.S - The best advertising commercials in Malaysia were usually done by Leo Burnett (if I don't add the festive season themed ones)

Michelle: I bet you like it. xD Even the tour guide in Melbourne promoted it also xD

Kwong: yea, I did saw a lot of creative ads, but some are like slideshows and presentations. The best is Digi and Petronas.
