Hakka CNY clip ala LMFAO getting popular


A Sabah-made Chinese New Year video greeting in Hakka is the latest clip to have gone viral with close to 300,000 views within 10 days.

Photographer-cum-artistic dance assistant Skyler Liew, 30, who directed the music video, posted the 3.35-minute clip on YouTube on Chinese New Year midnight, without any expectation.





“I was surprised it became so popular. The music video was nothing serious as we did it for fun and for the sake of making people (Malay­sians overseas) feel at home,” he said.

Using dancers from the Synergy Dance Studio here, owned by his brother Christopher, and shot using a Pentax DSLR camera, the video was filmed at various locations around the city a day before Chinese New Year.


The music video featured nine people including a 13-year-old boy, donning white singlets, blue jeans, black boots and sunglasses, dancing to a parody of the American electro pop duo LMFAOs song and video, Sexy and I Know It.

The tune was sung in Hakka by the main singer in the clip Helmsly Chong Jin Fu, 21.

Skyler got the idea for the clip after hearing Chong singing the song in Hakka in his car.

Christopher, 30, who choreographed the dance with Skyler, believes the video was a hit because it connected with Malaysians, especially those who spoke Hakka.

Skyler said he received calls from Malaysians living in the United States and Britain, congratulating and thanking him for the short video.
