PETRONAS' Heartwarming Ad Shows How A Small Act Of Kindness Can Uplift Someone's Spirit

This story is brought to you by PETRONAS.


With Deepavali around the corner, PETRONAS has released yet another heartwarming video titled Sikat Nasihat that takes us on a journey with a local barber, his beloved daughter, and his customers.

Manosh is a cherished barber in his neighborhood, and his skills go beyond haircuts. What makes customers keep coming back is his uncanny ability to connect with them on a deeper level. He always listens to their problems and offers advice and encouragement, helping them change their outlook on life.

Although he owns just a small barber shop called Superstar Cuts, his job brings him so much joy in life.

Meena, Manosh's daughter, is always amazed by her father's unwavering joy in providing haircuts, no matter who his customers are.

Watch the full video below:

From an eldest son who hasn't slept a wink in three days, to a man who just broke up with his girlfriend, the customers that step through the doors come with all kinds of life struggles. And yet, Manosh welcomes them with open arms.

With his friendly demeanor and cheerful spirit, he lifts his customers' moods each time they walk in his shop.

Just by having a little empathy and kindness, Manosh is able to transform their worries into smiles and relief. Not only do his customers walk out with a new look, but also a light heart and jovial mood.

However, his curious daughter Meena wonders how her father keeps it up, and finds simple joy just from cutting hair.

Meena grew up watching her father work his hairstyling skills on people from all walks of life. Sometimes, after school, she even helps out at Superstar Cuts by folding clean towels or cleaning up once customers leave.

But, still, to this day, there is one thought that lingers on her mind —? how her father finds such happiness from something so simple.

Curious to know what Meena found out? You'll have to watch PETRONAS' Deepavali video to discover it yourself!

This Deepavali, PETRONAS wants to remind us to always maintain an empathetic heart towards others, regardless of their background.

PETRONAS wishes all Malaysians a Happy Deepavali!
