With music, rap lyrics, monologue, and emotional saxophone, clip Forest prompts a lot of thought.
Artist Thanh Loc: ‘Humans’ cruel to mother nature’
Artist Thanh Loc opens the clip with a deep monologue. He said: “I am standing here, in the middle of a rainforest that has just been revived. But are these single revivals enough to make up for what we have lost?
The truth is that we are destroying much faster than building. Every second that passes, when we are enjoying modern life with outstanding facilities, the world loses an area of forest equal to a football field.”

Thanh Loc believes that people only “inn” on this dear Earth, but we treat this place not well. “We, humans, have been cruel to mother nature,” he said.
The artist asked the audience: “Where is the forest to help prevent floods? The football fields we take away every year will be exchanged for flooded villages. Many Vietnamese families fall into the scene of heaven and earth. If it is a family yours, what do you think?”.

Rapper Yuno Bigboi contributed a powerful message with the rap: “Cut down trees to have many colorful glittering sheets in your wallet, so that there is not enough oxygen to breathe in the air. If one day plants also have a language to speak, What’s the verdict on humanity when they all stand up and demand justice?”.
Upholding filial piety but making mistakes with mother nature?
In the green forest, singer Vu Cat Tuong sang: “Where is the shadow of the tree that is the roof of the house. Can we hear nature crying? Please turn around, turn around, turn around. Always uphold filial piety but make mistakes with mother nature. Run after change and forget about divine roots.”

At the end of the clip, Tran Manh Tuan’s painful saxophone blends with Vu Cat Tuong’s voice and Yuno Bigboi’s rap to call for action.
The clip ends with a monologue by artist Thanh Loc: “To respect what we have, to protect what’s left, and to not let anything disappear. Let’s sort out the garbage, and throw it away if we can. Please use paper sparingly.
Say no to precious furniture and products made from wild animals. Most of the amazing changes in the world start with someone.”
