P-P-P-eeing against the wind
I think by now a lot of Malaysians would have watched, and enjoyed, the DAP video parody of Oppa Gangnam Style. (If you haven't you can scroll down this page and there is a link there to it.)
So now let the real clowns come in....TADAAAAAAAAAAA...
The PPP (People's Progressive Party) and some NGO's including the Malaysian Consumers Development Board (LPPM) have lodged a police report claiming that the video tarnishes the image of the country leaders. What the FUCK!!! One of the complaining flers even said, "This is an insolent act which the people cannot accept..." Well unless you've been asleep the last couple of weeks you would know that a lot of people have not only accepted but also enjoyed the video. For whatever reasons, not limited to political ones.
The PPP chap claimed that the video clip produced by the opposition parties featured several cartoon animations that resembled Malaysian leaders. Really? The only resemblance to anyone living or dead that I recognised was the talented actress who played a big lady with a big hair-do and big handbags. With a little imagination you might think the character resembles Rosmah Mansor. But I don't hear her complaining. Do you? Maybe she has the sense of humour you don't.
Anyway, PPP and you other complaining flers, please remember la our leaders have much thicker skin than you give them credit for. And as for tarnishing their image...come on la! Nobody can do what has already been done to perfection. By the leaders themselves. So lighten up and try to get votes some other way. This one won't work la, thamby! You might want to try for a bigger flower garland?
