The #AngkasTaraNa Music Video is Funny and LSS-Worthy!

One of my favorite profiles on social media is the Twitter account of Angkas, the leading motorcycle taxi platform in the country. They post a lot of funny content, even riding on current memes to make jokes about themselves, their followers, and the ridesharing industry. It may seem like they don’t have an online strategy but it worked to their advantage because they now have a distinct personality.

Now, Angkas has decided to level up by producing a music video for the song #AngkasTaraNa. It’s hilarious and LSS-worthy, but there’s something else that makes the song and the video special: the rapper, Trix Maceres, is an Angkas driver. The choreography was also developed by an Angkas driver, and many of the people in the video are part of the community, too.

LOOK: These Tetra Paks are Good for the Environment!

There came a point in time when we all realized that plastic is bad. In a terrifying article by National Geographic last June, they declared that 40% of plastic is used only once and is killing millions of marine animals each year. Their brilliant cover featuring a bag that looked like an iceberg was hard to ignore. Now, plenty of people live zero waste lifestyles, while even more refuse single-use bottles and opt to bring tumblers around.

But what if I told you that there’s a pack of water you can buy that’s responsibly sourced and recyclable? Yes, it’s possible and Tetra Pak has made it a reality with their new drinking water.
