Sugar darts should definitely be a thing. And that’s just one of the crazy, yet fun, things that appear in Singapore Health Promotion Board’s recent YouTube video “Kungfu Fighter, Hidden Sugar”. If you haven’t seen it yet, we highly encourage you to do so.
It’s not surprising how it has become so popular in just a few days, thanks to its cinematic effects reminiscent of old kung-fu movies. It even has exaggerated technique names and effects, but that just makes it all the more fun now doesn’t it?
The video’s main goal is to show the sugar intake of different Chinese New Year food and drinks, and to make sure that people remember to eat in moderation. The video itself is about a badass kung-fu warrior who has to stop an evil wizard from making people eat a lot of sugar. The video’s message itself is akin to something we did ourselves only a few weeks ago.

The Government of Singapore really excelled in making such a fun video to carry its message across, of course the only way to truly teach people anything is through exaggerated action scenes and awesome effects. Well, not really, but it’s certainly a more fun way to do it and we hope that you eat less sugar than you really need to!
