By the cutest stalker ever in a Music Video. :p
Mu Tou Ren (木头人) is a band formed by 3 of my WDA Classmates and we collaborated to film a Music Video for their Original Song, Mu Tou Ren Gen Zong Ji（木头人跟踪记).
As the title of the song suggested, it's about a girl (yours truly) being followed by a geeky guy aka woodblock.

Mu Tou Ren Zhui Zong Ji came in SECOND in the Impresario 2013 Original Composition Category in March this year.
Impresario is an annual Nationwide Talent Search competition organised by CAC. It's founded in 1992. You can take part in categories including Dance, Original composition, Vocal and Vocal group.
Impresario has always been a highlight in NTU's calendar of events and has gained national recognition in its efforts to be one of the main channels of talent emergence in Singapore.

Zhi Hao, the guy holding the macbook, is in charge of playing of the song in the background so that we are able to follow the lyrics and rhythm of the song.

Try to spot where I took this photo from when you watch the Music Video later:

《木头人跟踪记》is an original song written by Daniel Ong (composer) and Lan Huishan (lyricist).
You'll definitely enjoy the Music Video.
Also, you'll be so tempted to share it with your friends because the male lead, who's also one of the singers of this song and the owner of Shubacs, is just too good.
Aspiring young man yet humble and friendly.

Here's a better description what Mu Tou Ren is about taken from their Youtube Video description:
The term《木头人》has two meanings:
1. The literal translation of 木头 is wood and 人 is a person. The term《木头人》refers to a geek who doesn't know how to express himself, pretty much lacking in social skills.
2. There is a childhood game called《一二三，木头人》. One person will back face the rest
and shout "一二三，木头人!", and then turn around. While the one person shouts that line, the others will creep towards him/her. But when he/she turns around, all of them will have to freeze on the spot, otherwise they will be out of the game. This game is similar to the scenario of what the boy is going through -- creeping up to the girl, but afraid of getting caught, which will result in his elimination from her list of potential suitors. The childhood game reflects his innocence, that he has no ill intentions.
The song is presented in a quirky manner to complement the silly yet cute thoughts of the geeky boy.
