Comedian Douglas Lim throws subtle shade at certain parties with new video

We see what you did there *winks*

MALAYSIA – Douglas Lim, one of the most respected and widely acclaimed comedians, once again made Malaysians howl with laughter over his newly released video on Wednesday (June 30).

In the video, Douglas played the role of an art teacher and told students that they were free to draw whatever they wanted. What followed next was a series of drawings that (lowkey) teased recent happenings and controversies which took place in the country.

ICYMI, here are some of the most iconic lines from the video and the events Douglas was referring to:

1. “Zuzu, you pun lukis bendera putih? Kenapa tiru Yat?”

Event: Following the loss of income and livelihoods, the #BenderaPutih movement was launched to help those in need. However, Housing and Local Government minister Zuraida Kamaruddin was accused of “hijacking” the campaign when she voiced her support on Twitter.

6. “Dino tak boleh jumpa cikgu kerana cirit-birit.”
