Chai Noon (Hi Res)

Two Indian mothers battle it out over who has the better daughter and only one is left standing....


This has to be the funniest short video EVER! Send it to the Oscars, I say! For those who cannot follow the accent ... well ... tough!

Thanks for posting! I don't know whether the viewing experience was smooth for you -- it's NOT smooth on my machine, but I posted the vid on my page in the hope that visitors could watch/listen at their ease on THEIR machines.

For me, the kicker was the two dads -- ! I REALLY laughed-out-loud then. As it happened, the first time around, I was interrupted while the video was running, so I heard a choppy version of the dads' conversation while I was talking on the phone. I was puzzled by what appeared to be a reference to "multiple sclerosis" -- and I hadn't heard the end of the mothers' discussion at all -- so you can imagine how the sunrise lit up my horizon when I heard the whole thing again, properly!

"She'll be alright, she's taking antibiotics."

ROTFLMAO!

Marginalien said...

Yep, the antibiotics got me right between the laff-buttons!

so now we know why antibiotics were called wonder drugs! hilarious. would strongly recommend that the video be put up for general large scale cyber viewing eg through www.metacafe.com gt

Well, it's an inspired bit of videography, no question about it -- am delighted that you continue to pass it around.

About mortality checks and telephone calls -- very possibly, I will be in the US in Nov. East Coast is my usual hang out but who knows? I may change my tactics. I'll send co-ordinates by e-mail.
