Ho Ho Ho... The Malaysian government's TV3 station people must have patted themselves on the back for using the latest computer generated (cg) production techniques in producing this advertisement for the Hari Raya celebration. Hey, why don't we try something in the mould of 'Avatar'? That would be cool, they thought. Little did they anticipate that it would whip up a storm of condemnation from the Malay-muslim population. The ad was subsequently pulled off the air amidst a flurry of police reports made against it for insulting Islam.
A blogger added his thoughts on why Malays reacted the way they did.
