You might think Namewee is singing a Thai song at first, but when you listen closely, the Malaysian artist is singing a mix of Mandarin, Thai and English.The 29-year-old uploaded his latest music video, A Thai Love Song on Feb 7 but it is already gaining a fan following.A comedic take on a Malaysian guy's love for a Thai girl, it also shows famous Thai landmarks like the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Democracy Monument, Khao San Road and Hat Yai.Playing himself in the video, Namewee, or Wee Meng Chee, sees a beautiful Thai woman (Chayanuj Boontanapibul) and falls in love. He then tries all means to woo her, with hilarious results.Just two weeks after it was uploaded, Namewee's hit has already garnered over 800,000 views on YouTube.This is one love song we can probably laugh to and even relate it as it also reflects Malaysian and Singaporean culture, mixed with a funny play on Thai words.Watch the video to the end to see the horrific twist.Click to the next page for the full lyrics.
