UNICEF’s “Imagine” video features Upin & Ipin
The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) recently launched the world version of John Lennon's classic song “Imagine”, featuring Malaysia’s most famous animated twins Upin and Ipin, alongside some of the biggest stars in the world.
As the UNICEF Malaysia’s national ambassadors, Upin and Ipin got to contribute a small part in the music video, singing the lines “Imagine all the people…” in their cute Manglish accent.
The twins who were chosen to represent Malaysia as UNICEF Ambassadors in 2013, are also the only animated characters in the three and a half-minute long music video.

This world version of “Imagine” shines a spotlight on the 28 million children around the world who have been driven from their homes due to conflict.
