The month of Ramadan is considered sacred and Muslims observe fast (Roza) during this period. This holy month has a great value and gives a message of harmony and peace.
The fast food chain McDonald’s Singapore has come up with a beautiful and heart-warming ad on Ramadan. Showing the true spirit of Ramzan, the ad has already gone viral for all the good reasons and people from all across the world are moved with the emotional message.
It showcases the story of a McDonald’s delivery boy – how he carries out his duties honestly while keeping fast, fulfills his work commitment and completes all the deliveries no matter whether lift is out of order, helps other people on the road when he himself is tired and hungry and finally gets his fast opened by a customer only who reminds him that it’s past 7pm and the time of Iftar. The ad is full of amazing moments that will move you!

McDonald’s Singapore’ spokesperson revealed the purpose behind the ad in an interaction with The Straits Times,
“We wanted to celebrate Singapore’s community spirit of human kindness, sharing and togetherness during this Ramadan month, and what better way than to do it through the lens of our McDelivery riders – who connect our brand with our customers, door to door. It’s our small way of appreciating those working tirelessly behind the scenes to deliver meals and enabling the bonding and sharing moments during this occasion.”
Social media users also loved the ad and this is how they reacted:
Teared up at the end. Something I actually miss about Ramadhan in Singapore: people who respect and not mock your beliefs. Loved the ad, McDonalds Singapore! https://t.co/pgxDXvgoLK

I loved the guy helping everyone while he was tired, hydrated and hungry. And that man who offered him food to open his roza stole my heart.
