Čipsis un Dullais - become a music video star
The musical duo have released a new song titled “Pašbūšana (Vēstules II)” (“Being with yourself (Messages II)”) and they want you to be one of the stars of the official music video. Taking inspiration from the current situation and lyrics from the “depths of the internet”, the song talks about love during quarantine asking, as the chorus goes: “But are you reading my messages?”. Simply film yourself getting comfy at home, or if you're feeling brave, singing the chorus, and send the video to the group's Facebook page by April 30!
