Who would have thought that by uploading a video of himself dancing on TikTok, a young man managed to attract the attention of a well-known manufacturing company?
Recently, social media was abuzz after a video of TikTok user, Shazani Shamsor dancing to the iconic Beras Cap Rambutan ad song made its way online.

To date, the video has garnered 1.7 million views and over 7,500 comments from netizens on TikTok. In this case, a lot of them couldn’t help but be entertained with his expressionless dancing. Interestingly enough, Syazani also received a direct message from the rice company on Instagram. They offered to give him and his family a sack of rice for free as a gift!
In an interview with VOCKET, the 19-year-old spoke about receiving the offer from the folks at Beras Cap Rambutan following the unexpected success of the video. The company said that they wanted to reward his creativity in coming up with the TikTok post.

Syazani, on the other hand, initially refused the offer and requested for the rice to be given to those in need instead. After discussing with his family, however, he decided to receive the “honour”. “If I had rejected the offer, it may seem like I was being rude. My parents asked me not to refuse the gift. So, I eventually agreed,” he told the portal.
Do you think we could get a free iPhone gift if we came up with a TikTok clip for an Apple ad? It would be great if we could get the latest iPhone 12 for free. 🤩
