Fess up, guys. Namewee’s (黃明志) catchy hit, “Thai Love Song” (泰國情哥), is one of your guilty pleasures.
Yesterday (21st December), the controversial singer released the remake version of the song, much to the delight of fans. In collaboration with Beijing duo Chopstick Brothers’ (筷子兄弟) Xiao Yang (肖央), the music video for “Thai Love Song 2017” features Chinese entertainers Xiao Shen Yang (小沈陽), Qiao Shan (乔杉), Chang Yuan (常遠), Alan (艾倫), as well as South Korean babe Clara Lee (클라라).
While the music video for the original track, which was released in 2013, has reached more than 11 million views on YouTube, the new remake has been viewed over 93,000 times in just 1 day.
The music video opens with Xiao Yang introducing his group as Neighbours in a typical Thai club. He then dedicates the song to Clara Lee, who is the club’s bartender/waitress. After that, the boys can be seen singing and dancing to the song passionately onstage while trying to pick up girls.
In Namewee’s post, he wrote, “‘Thai Love Song’ has become ‘Chinese Love Song’. The female lead is Korean, so this song is technically ‘Korean Love Song’. What is this cross-country love song…(Remember to watch till the end).”
