Creative Singaporeans have run a catchy retailer’s theme song through the wayback machine to put their own retro spin on it.
Singer-songwriter Jerry Galeries has blessed fans of Don Don Donki, aka Don Quijote, with an ‘80s version of the Japanese discount store’s theme song accompanied by a lyric video packed with old-school camerawork.
“Don Don Donki Theme Song but it’s 1987[.] Brought to you by Toh Keng Karaoke,” he wrote Saturday, giving a nod to popular karaoke outlet Teo Heng KTV studio.
The addictive theme is widely recognized for being played on loop through the speakers of all 10 stores in Singapore, where more outlets are on the way.
The three-minute video, complete with VCD-level quality issues, was cut with snippets of Singapore, including a Don Don Donki store, subjected to psychedelic filters and paired with wacky transitions and accompanying musicians.
The original version, Miracle Shopping, was performed by Japanese singer Maimi Tanaka.
