SAR-lah oredi

By | July 9, 2003

If you ever need evidence of government propaganda, look no further. Right here in Singapore, local celebrities are falling over themselves to become the unofficial mouthpiece of the various authorities.

What is amazing about “SAR-vivor Rap” by Phua Chu Kang is that it adds a new dimension to the definition of propaganda. A new dimension because it manages to mock the citizen’s intelligence (“Use your brain, Use your brain, Use your brain”) while drilling home the message through corny lyrics like “SARS is a virus that I just wanna minus” and “Be safe not SAR-ry”.

Truly amazing.
