Dr Mumbo

Parody video alert: This is Singapore

So it seems that YouTube star Hirzi Zulkiflie has decided to join forces with the actor and singer Ryan Rifat, in order to produce this film just in time for Singapore’s National Day celebrations on Thursday.

Dr Mumbo is told that it’s a hilarious pastiche of Childish Gambino’s This is America video.

The United States original hitting the headlines in May, thanks to its social commentary on gun crime, and garnering more than 360 million views on YouTube as a result.

Being the contrarian that he is, Dr M is not sure though that ‘hilarious’ is the right adjective to describe the This is Singapore effort.

But what does he know anyway? You decide for yourselves.
