We're all heroes, according to property developer's rap song

With GreyNJ United, Thai property developer Ananda releases a rap to keep people upbeat as Thailand sees an increase in Covid cases.

'Urban hero' is a catchy rap tune delivered in a 45-second video from Thailand property developer Ananda and GreyNJ United. The video, featuring the vocal stylings of an aspiring rapper known as OG Bobby, aims to buck up the spirits of people in Thailand, which is living under stricter pandemic measures amid an increase in infections.

A grumpier writer might ask whether people want or need encouragement from a property developer. But you know what? People in places where Covid is continuing to notch up record infection rates need whatever encouragement they can get. So today, Ad Nut is content to bob Ad Nut's head and enjoy the rhymes.

Ad Nut advises you to do the same. Definitely don't go seaching for more uplifting rap from OG Bobby though, because you might end up finding misogynistic garbage.
