Recently, many Malaysian drivers had to do a double take after looking at the unique billboards featuring Datuk David Arumugam and Datuk Vida by the highways. As part of Dairy Champ’s 2017 campaign, Alleycats’ singer, Datuk David Arumugam and founder of Vida Beauty, Datuk Seri Hasmizah Othman or better known as Datuk Vida, have been chosen as the ambassador for the brand. On the ads, Datuk Vida’s face was creatively embedded into an ais-kacang with the evaporated milk pouring from top that resembled a crown. The ais-kacang was covered in pink syrup because pink was Datuk Vida’s favourite colour. They didn’t skimp on the condiments such as corns and beans as well.
