Just when you thought the P65 MPs' rap took the cake, along comes the Media Development Authority with theirs.
I could not have made a funnier video if I tried.
I wanted to laugh but my ribs still hurt from the bicycle accident.
Agagooga has the full lyrics, if you desire to rap along.
Back in 2004, Director Royston Tan made "Cut", a short film about censorship in Singapore, which was derided by Dr Lee Boon Yang, the Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts.
Dr Lee said:
"I think it is unhealthy for public officers who are carrying out their duties to be subjected to unwarranted ridicule even if it is just for a laugh, more so when such decisions were taken only after extensive consultations. The producer may think it is funny, but I am afraid I do not appreciate such unbecoming attempts to undermine the standing of a public institution."
I think it is a major step forward for a public institution to turn the tables on parodies like Royston's by creating their own videos.
Oh, you may wanna watch Royston's short film in the following 3-part Youtube clips. I think you will agree with me, after watching both videos, that the MDA one is way better.
