Singapore National Day Parade 2006 TV Ad

The video’s description from YouTube…

TV spot for Singapore’s National Day Parade 2006 set to the sounds of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.

If it sounds familiar, it’s probably because you have heard it last in ‘V for Vendetta’, when the eponymous protagonist blows up the British Parliament to the music.

Not sure if the people who made the ad did it intentionally or saw the irony in what they did.

You decide. Note also the use of fireworks also conveniently present in V for Vendetta.

Thank you Agagooga for pointing me to the link and the video’s description.
