The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) recently launched the world version of John Lennon’s iconic hit, ‘Imagine’ starring a number of global artists and influencers, including Malaysia’s favourite animated twins, Upin and Ipin
Did you know that Upin and Ipin were selected to represent Malaysia as UNICEF Ambassadors in 2013? Not only are they the sole local representatives in the video, they are also the only cartoon characters featured!
The UNICEF ‘Imagine’ project was launched on International Children’s Day 2014 with the support of Yoko Ono, David Guetta, and people from more than 140 countries around the world.
‘Imagine’ highlights the plight of 28 million people from around the world who have been chased away from their homes due to conflict.
The video features UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors such as Shakira, Katy Perry, Idris Elba, Priyanka Chopra, will.i.am, Adam Lambert, Neymar Jr., and many more, together with people who also shared their own version of the song.
