So Bad.. It’s Good – Bad Jokes Battle Showcases the humourous side of the Indian culture
Mah Sing ‘Dee-Pun-Vali’ is a creative effort that aims to showcase the lighter side of the Indian culture. The video starts off pitting two teams against each other in a bad-jokes show-off. The team that manages to hold in their laughter throughout the duel would be crowned winner. Team Mah Sing was represented by Vijaydran and Sheena Raja Bahadur while their opposition was team Comedian represented by Prakash Daniel and Harvinth Skin.
The first round had each team tell their opposing number bad jokes or ‘puns’ which are tied to the Indian culture or Deepavali. Vijaydran was pitted against Prakash Daniel and Sheena was up against Harvinth Skin in one-on-one bouts.
The second round, titled ‘If Rock Bands Had Indian Names’ was an even bigger laugh fest as the teams were read out the names of famous international rock bands who have had their band names changed to sound more Indian, such as ‘Lingam Park’ and ‘My Capati Romance’.
Team Mah Sing emerged the victors after the 2 rounds, as they managed to keep their cool better than the other team. The bad-jokes battle was a light hearted affair, as both team Mah Sing and team Comedian were in high spirits throwing puns at each other. The video ends with Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum, Mah Sing’s Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Ho Hon Sang and a cast of the Mah Sing team wishing everyone Happy Deepavali.
