A 200-strong cast that reads like a who’s who of Hong Kong’s business, political and entertainment sectors – including superstar Jackie Chan and businessman Allan Zeman – has been enlisted to guest star in a music video of the Chinese national anthem. The star-studded video, just under three minutes long, is part of a project by a local group, the Committee of Youth Activities in Hong Kong, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China this year. In the video, a flash mob of community leaders and socialites converged on Golden Bauhinia Square on the Wan Chai waterfront, where the national flag-raising ceremony is held every morning and the national anthem March of the Volunteers is played. One scene showed Zeman singing the anthem in Mandarin. The Lan Kwai Fong Group chairman said in the video: “Singing the national anthem in Chinese, I felt very, very patriotic. I felt very, very good.” He could not be reached by press time on Wednesday to confirm whether he was singing or miming. There were also scenes where cleaning workers pause and face the national flag as a mark of respect as the anthem plays. Also featured are Western tourists taking pictures and exploring the square. In another scene, an elderly woman in a wheelchair attempted to stand up and sing the anthem as it was played. Hong Kong youth need more patriotic education to cure ‘sickness’ of separatism, say delegates to CPPCC Also starring in the video were popular Canto-pop singer Alan Tam Wing-lun, Hong Kong delegates to the National People’s Congress Wong Yuk-shan and Stanley Ng Chau-pei, former Hong Kong health minister Dr Ko Wing-man, and Kenneth Fok Kai-kong and his wife, retired four-time Olympic diving champion Guo Jingjing. New national anthem law overrules free speech in Legislative Council, official says According to the committee, other locations used in the video included the high-speed rail terminus in West Kowloon, the airport and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge. Fok, chairman of the committee, said: “I have to thank those who took part in the filming. The weather that day was rather hot, and not very stable.” “Some elderly [participants] had to stand for quite some time,” said Fok, a grandson of late billionaire and Beijing loyalist Henry Fok Ying-tung, in a TVB interview on Wednesday. “It was no plain sailing for our country these last 70 years … When we drink water, we should think of its source,” said Fok, quoting the Chinese idiom that means one should not forget where one’s happiness comes from and show gratitude for it. Hong Kong soccer fans risk paying penalty on Chinese national anthem law Fok said he hoped to think of more creative means to produce other activities to promote national education. Fok’s committee is formed by nine pro-Beijing groups in Hong Kong, including the Y. Elites Association and the Hong Kong United Youth Association, of which the key members are the so-called fu er dai , or “second-generation rich” – the scions of wealthy families.
