Orange has answered our question that we have been thinking about for a long time about their Ramadan collaboration.
Orange has achieved huge success when it collaborated with the famous singer Hussein Al-Jasmi and we were wondering if there will be another collaboration this Ramadan since both work with each other beautifully. The answer is No. Orange collaborated with the stars Nelly Karim, Mona Zaki, and Dina El-Sherbiny.
Since Ramadan came in the spring season, Orange decided to create an advert that is cheerful and colorful and it is inspired by the beautiful icon Soaad Hosny since she represents this beautiful season with her songs.

The advert represented the everlasting debate between different generations that the holy month of Ramadan is different from one generation to another! The advert is funny and cheerful and both the actors have put a smile on the viewers’ faces.
The question here is, did the advert deliver its message?
There’s no denying that the advert has almost zero negative feedback but did it actually succeed to promote the new offer?
On Facebook, the advert has 236K views and 5.3K reactions, while on YouTube it is the number one trend with over 1 million views.
