Would you like a Baby Shark-style jingle to educate young Singaporeans on the importance of green initiatives?
It’s an idea that Marsiling-Yew Tee RCMP MP Hany Soh raised in Parliament today (March 4).
During the Department of Communications and Information Supply Committee debate, she asked:
“Whether a collaboration with Mediacorp will be explored to introduce a cartoon series using rhythmic content similar to YouTube channel songs Baby Shark or CocoMelon involving mascots like Captain Green, Water Wally to attract and educate young audiences to become our young budding green champions.”
For those unaware, Captain Green is the frog mascot of Singapore’s Clean and Green campaign while Water Wally is the teardrop mascot of the national water agency PUB.
Past collaboration with PinkFong
A Baby Shark-style song to promote water-saving tips in Singapore is not unheard of, however.
In fact, in 2021, PUB teamed up with Pinkfong (the company behind Baby Shark) to release a danceable music video called “Turn off the Tap!”.
The clip features Water Wally, his sister Water Sally, and the pink mascot himself, Pinkfong.
