"Allergic to Farangs"

Often, when foreigners ask for directions in English Thai people are petrified to reply, too unsure of themselves to utter a word. They needn't be.

A Facebook user who goes by the name Krunoom Asean (Young Asean Teacher) has made a cover of a popular Thai song, with alternate lyrics about Thais being afraid of learning English grammar.

Krunoom Asean wrote that Thai people will no longer be allergic to farangs (foreigners) after listening to this song, which he sings in T'english, or English with a Thai accent.

The original song is "Allergic to Bangkok" by Thai rock musician Nakarin "Pang" Kingsak, featuring folk singer Takkatan Cholada.
