Nuts brand’s K-pop video teaches Chinese students that walnuts are good brain food

California walnuts filmsA brand of nuts has launched a K-pop style music video featuring Chinese internet stars to promote the brain boosting powers of walnuts as high school students in China prepare to take their exams.

In the three minute video for California Walnuts created by Grey Shanghai, struggling male students are paid a classroom visit by some flying nuts and a group of dancing school girls who sing about how walnuts are good for the brain.

The translated lyrics read: “Brain cells, brain cells, jumpstarting quickly, California walnuts, California walnuts, everybody. Come go nuts with me, love these walnuts incredibly.”

A press release from the agency reads: “5 local Internet starlets with a strong teen following were transformed into China’s very own overnight one-hit wonder pop sensation – the girl band known as the Recess Princess.”

“This debut hit single “Recess for the Mind” combines song and dance to deliver the message of how walnuts are an excellent source of brain food to help achieve higher test scores.”
