Why do we even need a fun pack song?

Why do we even need a fun pack song?

The fun packs for 2011 National Day Parade (NDP). Some Singaporeans whom RazorTV spoke to gave mixed comments when asked what they thought about the NDP fun pack song. -- ST PHOTO: JOSEPH NAIR EMBARRASSING. Ridiculous. Weird. Innovative. These were some of the comments from Singaporeans when RazorTV asked them what they thought about the NDP fun pack song. When asked if we needed a song to publicise the fun pack, many felt the money could have been spent better, while others wondered why a song by a western singer was chosen over local artistes. Sung to the tune of Lady Gaga's hit, Bad Romance, the lyrics of the song were modified to highlight items found in this year's NDP fun pack. Online feedback to the song has also been vociferous, with more veering toward the negative rather than positive. Check out RazorTV for these reactions.
