Pop Band’s Music Video Parodies Junta Rule in Thailand | Global Voices

A famous pop band in Thailand has released a music video parodying the junta that grabbed power in 2014 and continues to govern the country despite its pledge to restore civilian rule.

The Tattoo Colour band’s new song ‘Dictator Girl’ (Phadet Girl) is about a young man narrating the rules set for him by his girl.

While not explicitly about politics, the music video made indirect reference to the continuing military rule.

The band was praised by fans and other Internet users for its bravery in depicting the country’s situation.
