Unite for Food
Both parties also urge Netflix to run #BersatuForMakan, which means Unite for Food, as part of the famous Street Food Asia series, through a petition.
The video was even made in the same format and style as the aforementioned show. This way, it will be more convenient for it to be included in the series.
“Instead of producing another web film to pull heartstrings, we decided on something unique: A longer format 30-minute film that’s also ready-made for Netflix. It was the right opportunity to work on an idea like this, so we seized it,” stated Fishermen Executive Director Andrew Tan.
According to Lee, the company feels fortunate to have partnered with BFM who stands by a daring idea to bring Malaysian together through unity and identity. He added that they are extremely happy to see people’s overwhelming response.
Instead of sulking, the makers of the video acknowledge that Netflix is a great platform to raise awareness of Malaysian culture. They also cleared up that the video was not meant to make the streaming company angry. At the end of the day, they are all still Netflix subscribers.
