Luck, good fortune, wealth, honesty, prosperity, hard work, peace-loving, generous, indulgent, patient, reliable, sincere, with a good sense of humour and understanding. All positive, wholesome adjectives to describe someone who was born in the Year Of The Pig. According to the general masses that is.
Interpretations can land in many different directions, and in the case of Graph Studios, decided to highlight the bad habits of Malaysian’s under the guise of babi. Of course, babi is as synonymous a swear word as sh*t, and f*ck, and in a purely satirical effort, showcases our people’s most ‘babi’ behaviour, with major culprits including double parking, fong fei kei (last minute pull out from plans), taking up priority seats in public transportation, not giving signals on the road, and many more. We really have to fix ourselves as a nation.
In the meantime, enjoy the marvelous effort put together by the studio in ‘The Year Of You.’
