BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — There's a brand new music video people are watching around Baton Rouge, because it features our mayor, Kip Holden!
It's all part of the mayor's promotion of "Healthy BR" an initiative designed to cut down on childhood obesity rates, and promote healthy living.
Teens from different high schools around the parish helped with the 80's style music video, that calls for exercise, no sugary drinks, and 10 hours of sleep for teens.
"But we are catching young people and then teaching them good eating habits and exercise habits as they get bigger in hopes of making sure that they don't have to face the devastation that some people are faced later on in life," Mayor Kip Holden said.
Two local movie theaters have agreed to show the music video during their previews to share its message with the greater Baton Rouge community.
