A candidate that will ‘talk that talk’

Lim recently took to Twitter to encourage his constituents to reelect him for GE15, where he was Kepong MP during the 2018 election.

In a twist that nobody saw coming, it featured a TWICE poster along with a superimposed image of him.

Aside from that, he also included several hashtags in the background such as #P114, #LLE4Kepong, #pakatanharapan, #roadtoperdanaputra, and ‘SPECIAL PRU15 SINGLE: Formula of Winning LLE + TWICE’

To add on to the amusing and unconventional campaign poster, Lim wrote out his manifesto using the titles of TWICE’s hit songs.

U ask, u get. TWICE and I will rock GE15. I am the candidate that will ‘Talk that Talk’ and will do my best for Kepong residents. I will do my best to ensure that the people of Kepong always ‘Feel Special’

Some even created memes to poke fun at the campaign poster.

On the other hand, some were displeased to see Lim using K-pop for political purposes, saying that it should be kept separate.
