Subway has launched its Ramadan campaign in Malaysia that has an emphasis on the importance of family.

The campaign, called “Satu kaki lebih mesra”, showcases people from different walks of life in a series of videos as they practice forgiveness despite the conflicts they face in their daily lives.

“Our mission is simple—we want to bring family and friends together this Ramadan. And now with the lifting of the restrictions, we can,” said Samad Mohd Shariff, Malaysia country director, Subway South East Asia.

In addition, Subway will launch a new mascot called Sabweh as part of the campaign. Designed by Ernest Ng, known for his ‘Don’t like that la bro’ comic series, the mascot will be featured on Hari Raya packets released by Subway.
