PETALING JAYA – The National Day video where Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai plays two roles is trending on YouTube.
A check by The Star found that the six minute-long video short entitled Citizens, produced by Pete Teo and Liew Seng Tat, is holding the number two spot on YouTube’s trending list.
The video was only beaten to the top spot by Taylor Swift’s new music video, while content related to the SEA Games dominated the rest of the list.
As of 2pm Wednesday, the video has amassed 124,775 views with 224 comments and 803 likes.
The video was released on Monday in conjunction with the upcoming National Day celebrations.
In the video, Liow portrays himself as Transport Minister, having a no-holds-barred conversation with a citizen, also played by Liow, who has grouses about the way the country is run.
The film was not Liow’s first as he has previously acted in other 15Malaysia and Hari Malaysia shorts, also produced by Teo. – The Star
