Greenrock's No Thanks! "Get with the Movement" Bermuda campaign music video has been making a stir on social media. Watch the full video at bermudasun.bm.


Original Press Release:

Greenrock and the Bermuda Marine Debris Taskforce have been campaigning to reduce single-use bags in Bermuda. An important part of that campaign is education to change people’s behavior. In order to communicate the key messages in a way that is fun but will stick in people’s minds, we have – with the help of many friends – made a parody music video.

 

The video will be launched at the Bermuda College this Friday, October 25th at 1pm in the Student Centre as part of the Bermuda College Spirit Day. The Bermuda College Environment Club is hosting the event, and guests include the Honorable Sylvan Richards, Minister for the Environment and Planning.

  • The music video is a parody of a popular recent hit and was put together with the help of many friends of Greenrock:
  • Words by local songwriter and personality Daniel Frith, who also sings and acts in the video as the incarnation of ‘A. Blinkin’
  • Vocal by amazing local singer Joy T. Barnum, and starring Stuart Kriendler as the shopper
  • Mike Hind is our ukele-master: with several small friends and local personalities in support
  • The video was filmed and edited by Milton Raposo
  • The producer is Mike Kisala with the help of Selange Gitschner
  • Lindo’s hosted the video filming and supplied key characters
  • The video was sponsored by Harrington Hundreds and Lindo’s
  • The KBB litter critter and the Greenrock Bag Monster both have starring roles

Greenrock President, Judith Landsberg commented, “The public is becoming increasingly aware of the fact that single-use bags are a waste of resources, but we hope that this music video will be a fun way to reinforce that message and help people remember to bring their own re-useable bags to the store and say ‘No Thanks!’ to single use plastic and paper bags.”

Come and be among the first to see the newest Bermuda music hit! Screen shots from the video are attached.
