An advertisement on how to do good deeds during Ramzan despite the spread of Covid-19 and while maintaining a safe distance is receiving a lot of praise on the internet.
The Surf Excel advertisement that was released in Pakistan starts with a boy asking his father how to do good deeds during lockdowns to which the father replies, “if there is a will to do good deeds, there is always a way.”
Check it out here:
The rest of the commercial shows how the boy, with other children, performing multiple acts of kindness while ensuring they were a distance from each other. From packing meals for a security guard to getting groceries for an elderly neighbour and sending a thank-you card to a medical worker, the children perform a number of kind deeds.
The advertisement has been doing the rounds of social media platforms since its release and has been widely praised. Take a look at some of the reactions here:
