It’s not much of an advertisement for ‘Thailand’s finest’, but it was only inevitable that this video of a policeman admitting he’s “mao nid noi” (a little bit drunk) has gone viral.
We have to say he does look a little the worst for wear, taking a half-hearted swipe at the camera and then wandering off.
Coconuts Bangkok reported Tuesday that the policeman in question has only recently taken to alcohol because his young daughter is sick, according to his wife. She added that he walks the way he does because of a back problem, not because he’s drunk.
“He walks like a drunk person because he’s suffering from spinal inflammatory disorders,” his wife said. “He can’t straighten his back. It’s very painful for him.”
