Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz announced that the details for Budget 2022 will be made in Parliament on 27th October at 9pm. This announcement was made on RTM Malaysia, complete with a trailer sequence.

In the trailer, Tengku Zafrul is seen speaking about time and date of the Budget 2022 press conference, with an overlay of a hyper-digital screen with the same details (and presumably, his Finance team).

The overlay on the right tickled many netizens’ funny bones.

However, netizens were not very impressed with the trailer, with many finding the design outdated and cringe.

Some even noticed that the trailer borrowed heavily from pop culture and media in the early 2000’s, include our local singer Datuk Sri Siti Norhaliza’s music videos from 2004.

If the trailer is meant to be believed, then perhaps Budget 2022 will focus more on digitisation and the future.
