A Thai woman who won her section of the television show 'Britain's Got Talent' is now better known in Britain than Thaksin Shinawatra. Yingluck does not get a look in.
Wachiraporn Tirpak's name is now on everybody's lips as 'Watching Raw Porn', which is how comedian Mike McIntyre pronounced it introducing her act..
More than nine million viewers last weekend saw her miming 'If you've got it. Flaunt it. Show your ass and let them know you're proud' while stripping down to a black negligÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©. She then did a quick change into a cabin attendant's uniform and started wheeling a trolley and wiggling her bum to an old British Eurovision Song contest flop.
I have to admit I was gobsmacked when I first saw this on the net thinking, well Thailand probably does not need stereotyping like this right now.... but then I could not help laughing. I mean she's got balls, not literally of course. Maybe she lost a dare in a pub. And my wife laughed.
Wachiraporn, 27, from Ayudhya, with a Slovakian husband, said she was a machinist and had been in England four years. She had not seen the Queen laughing and said she would like to perform in front of the Queen of England. Now there's ambition.
Of course at this stage of the competition it's not surprising she went through. This is the part for novelty acts. She had has such fierce competition as a pensioner balancing barrels on his head, and a one-eyed guy doing a belly dance to the 'Eye of the Tiger' - no I am not making this up. But she has apparently reached the semi-finals so maybe there's must be a lot more than what I saw on Youtube (linked below) Now she has to come up with some new ideas for her next performance..
So on the day Yingluck stands for the Pheua Thai Party go to Youtube for 'Watching Raw Porn'.
