Videos of the Year 2009!

I do not know who googivani is but after seeing googivani's youtube here, I almost had another heart attack! A good one I might add.

I do not understand the German language but the creation and creativity of the subtitles for video featuring Hitler (or is it HitLee) deserve a salute from each and every Singaporean. Heil googivani! Heil googivani! Hail googivani!




Having written "11 days or 56-man hours" in my previous blog based on what I've read in the msm, it shocked me to see the video of President Sellapan Ramanathan doing his utmost to put the lid on. It seems to me this is the most awkward job he's done since his ascension.

While watching the video I felt sad seeing him struggling to remember the meetings he had and keep reading from one paper/prompter to another on the table to get the show going. He seemed very nervous to me. Whenever he had to say "Jobs Credit Scheme" and "Special Risks Sharing Initiative" it was pretty discomforting to see his eyes darting from one note to another. It must be difficult for him too.

Instead of damage control, I think the powerful elites have dug themselves a bigger hole that's almost impossible to cover! As much as the editor of ST and Sister Chua tries to add on the spin on ST today (read here and here), this ludicrous PR stun is a huge negative blow to the image of the government.

The frustration and disappointment of alky made him write "Our president’s attitude reminds me of one of those building security guards who are supposed to keep watch and yet falls asleep while on duty in the middle of the night. Just sitting in the booth there for show only and waiting for his shift to be over in the morning." in TOC. Read here
(comment #8)

For what it's worth, I think having the President doing the press conference was a bad call. It would have been better if he did not. I may be wrong but his nervousness and lack of confidence which showed when reading from the notes gives me the impression that it was rehearsed.

In doing the press conference, he has inadvertently made the candle of President Ong Teng Cheong burns brighter. Much brighter! God bless his soul.

Addendum:
Oops, seems the HitLee video by googivani is no longer available in youtube due to a copyright claim by Lighthouse Pictures. However, thanks to reader Anon who commented on February 21, 2009 9:06 pm, I have re-linked the video to LiveLeak here. As videos such as this are so hard to come by, I most grateful to the guy who put it up at LiveLeak.

Interestingly, there's another clip here (same video but with different subtitles that's just as awesome!) by alexleecheeseng. (If you can't see the subtiltes, turn captions on by clicking up arrow at bottom right of youtube screen)

Have a good weekend!

The URL link leads to no HitLee video. Can you "fix" it (pun intended)?

Is the translator really capable of doing his job?

On the other hand they probably wanted someone who really can't do a good job.

Mr President Sir.

It's Jobs Credit Scheme not Job Credit Scheme.

Did you read the advanced information papers wrongly?

Have you given approval to the wrong scheme?

The Youtube URL no more works.

But here is another Liveleak URL which still shows the same video.

Yes Mr. Fish, there are many videos
out there that can vie for being the best.

But I believe the best is yet to be for Singaporeans only.

It has to be the video on many shedding crocodile tears when the oldfart kicks the bucket. lol
