Crazy Rich Asians The Movie is coming out soon, and suffice it to say that the hype is real. After all, it’s a Hollywood movie about Asians in Singapore…

What could possibly go wrong?

Aw, c’mon, that’s just a one-time thing.

Alright, two-time.

It’s not even that bad.

I think.

But anyway, moving on. So with anticipation for Crazy Rich Asians reaching fever-high pitch, parodies have sprung up one after another, with Youtube channels keen to milk- join in the CRA fun.

And local Youtube channel Night Owl Cinematics is one such producer.

Featuring top-notch cinematography and aesthetic visuals that match the original frame-to-frame, this is one parody you’ll be forgiven for thinking is the real thing.

Sibei Rich Asians

And look who’s here. Michelle Chong, the artiste behind loveable personas such as Premium Ah Lian (why is she always changing BF ah?), Leticia and numerous more, has jumped onto the bandwagon with her own rendition, and this time she has handpicked Ah Lian to star in the video.

When I saw Ah Lian in the trailer, I expected lots of Hokkien words and jokes, and suffice it to say…

I wasn’t disappointed. Not at all. I mean, just look at this scene opener.

Rich Boyfriend: “So we’ve been dating for over a week now, and I think it’s time people met my beautiful girlfriend. How about we take an adventure West?”

Ah Lian: “Wow! Paris? Good. I want to eat the… baguette.”

Rich Boyfriend: “No, I meant Bukit Timah…”

Seriously? I might be no particular slang advocate, but…

LMFAOTTADO (Laugh my fat ass off the table and die outside).

Typical Ah Lian

For the entirety of the two minutes I was watching it, I felt hard-pressed not to laugh. I mean, how can you not, especially when Ah Lian’s so darn superficial it hurts (because truth hurts), and the whole set-up just seems so comical in retrospect.

What’s more, the ending fits so squarely into the character’s persona, that I really can’t help but be amazed at the holy grail that’s Ah Lian.

Vulgar, smexy and flashy… what more can you ask from a girl, really? 

But of course, there are parts I didn’t exactly chortle at, and as you might’ve guessed it they’re the commercial parts.

Granted, Michelle Chong did include them in a way that isn’t just undisruptive but actually fits into the plot (though it can hardly be considered world-changing), but even so, I still found it hard to appreciate such blatant product placements.

Not that we can complain though. If you’ve ever seen our videos you would know that we’re 101% guilty of that too. No, 201% because clients ask for them, and we need to pay the bills (plus the boss needs a new BMW).

Crazy Rich Asians

Just a quick backdrop about the movie, in case you’ve never seen the description and took it at full literal value:

Rachel Chu is happy to accompany her longtime boyfriend, Nick, to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. She’s also surprised to learn that Nick’s family is extremely wealthy and he’s considered one of the country’s most eligible bachelors. Thrust into the spotlight, Rachel must now contend with jealous socialites, quirky relatives and something far, far worse — Nick’s disapproving mother.

Moral

Here at Goody Feed, we like to end off every article with a message so that you’re not walking off empty-handed (though you literally are, but let’s not go into specifics). As such, the moral of this article is that…

You can make a parody out of anything, and on rare occasions, you can actually do a better job than the original did.

So the next time you’re parodying your boss…

Just know that you might just do a better job as a boss than him. Learn it from me.

“OI, YOU THINK YOU CAN BECOME THE BOSS AH?”

Oops, gotta go. See ya.
