And you can pretty much bet your last dollar that some "face" obsessed idiot will do precisely that, if for no other reason other than to grab some publicity themselves. Very sad that people can't take something meant in the spirit of fun to be accepted as such.

He should have known better ... Its a cert that there will be a private Prosecution on horizon ... If I was him I would start packing now ... Aufweidersen

it seems all the farangs like to do is trash their host country, expressing extreme cynical views about Thailand and Thai society. Very unfair.

 

Not a big fan of Prayut but we must remember the whole story. Without the Thai military stepping in the Red Shirt agitators would have pushed Thailand in acivil war. After weeks of disrupting Bangkok they start with burning down Central. Military did what it had to do. If anythong, it were the Red Shirts who forced what came next.

Besides that, Prayut did not a bad job all these years. As an environmentalist myself, i noticed he did some pretty good stuff with regards to the environment.

 

Even if you oppose so strongly, we live here voluntarely, we are guests. Why get involved in politics in such a negative way? Funny song for the farang but it m9ght be denigrating for at least some Thai. Dont like it here? Move to Vietnam. 

 

Anyway, thx to this farang sucker, life has just become a bit more dificult for the farang. 

What a sensible post. It seems you understand Thailand more than most of these clowns on TV.

Thailand is what it is and we as expats should accept that without bashing the country on every issue that comes along.  Great post !!  thank you.

 

very well spoken, and correct.

I'm sorry, but could you explain your thoughts on this?

 

Not trying to disrespect you, but how will this one foreigner's upload to FB/YouTube have any effect on how we live in Thailand?

Why ask if you already know, Steven. 

 

I don't bash Thailand at all. I bash bad ideas. If that offends you, don't worry - bad ideas don't have feelings.

Well if its a bit more difficult just move to Vietnam.

 

Are you seriously suggesting that a guest must like everything about Thailand or just leave? You think its ok that things people consider bad should not be spoken about?

'Channel 7 reported that contact with the legal affairs department of the National Council for Peace and Order and the Thai technology police had been made by reporters.'

 

This sounds like Channel 7 are snitches or grasses - stirring up trouble, wanting to get this guy into hot water. If that is the case, it's pretty disgusting.

 

In my opinion, the guy's video was amusing and well done, but he was extremely foolish to poke his lone head above the parapet in this way; actually, I think he must be pretty mad (in the sense of crazy) to have done so.

 

If this had been a Thai, I think the consequences would have been more serious. But as other posters have said, this chap may not yet have heard the last of the matter. It would not surprise me one bit if some nationalistic, junta-adoring, private (allegedly) Thai citizen does indeed take out a private prosecution against this comedian. He really should make plans to leave Thailand while he still can, I feel ...

 

 

Haha I think they already took some action without taking any, if you know what I mean. The authorities said they won't take any action, and yet two rozzers showed up at the bloke's place and demanded he took the video down AND posted an apology, before they'd leave him in peace. Sounds to me like he's already been given a 'warning'... heheh

It may very well be in this guy's best interest to leave Thailand for a while.

A serious miscalculation for certes..

 

Unless he decided to go down fighting..which he didn't.

I can't understand his Thai without the subtitles and I've studied Thai at intermediate level.

 

I am impressed by his Thai but he can't pronounce Thai that well when I listened carefully

 

I am also impressed by his creativity in producing the song although he can't sing well. LOL

The red shirts were protesting because the elected government had been removed by the military. What would you do if the military in your country kicked out the government you voted for and replaced it with one more friendly to them?
