These are the two videos that people are talking about recently. The first one is the original Japanese commercial, and the second is the new National Day song music video.
News reports stated online responses:
Contributor goolen2001 said yesterday: "National Day advertisement also want to copy other advertisement? Shame on you.
Goolen2001 added: "The advertising agency wants to earn money only. Lazy to use brain."
Fellow contributor krankiepants said: "It's sad to see such things happening."
However, pbcjohn79 defended the video's creators: "It is an honest mistake. Let's move on."
The journalist does know that pbcjohn79 was likely being sarcastic, right?
(On an unrelated note, I thought the Chinese version of the NDP 2008 song, sung by Joi Chua, was better.)
