Yasmin Ahmad is the mastermind behind these wonderful TV commercials.

Want more? She’ll be directing a new film on 17-year-old Thaddeus Cheong who collapsed at the finish line during a selection race for the South-east Asian Games triathlon event in June 2009. He passed away soon after.

The film will be based on the book Go! Thaddeus! written by Thaddeus’ aunt, Belinda Wee. The book about the young hero was what got Thomas Chia, director of independent movie distributor Lighthouse Pictures, up on his feet to get the project going.

It will be released in August 2010 in Singapore and Malaysia and will be a lead up to the Youth Olympic Games. Watch out for it!
