This is hilarious, it made my day.
Mario Maurer, as you know, did a film coming out soon with ‘Mai’ Davika Hoorne, titled ‘Pee Mak…Phra Khanong’, it’s a parody of the classic horror story of Mae Nak, the young woman who in Thai folklore dies during a difficult childbirth while her husband Mak is off fighting a war in early 19th century Thailand. She becomes a ghost along with her child and tries to maintain a relationship with her husband when he returns from the war. When neighbors try to warn Mak that Nak is a ghost, she kills them all. It’s a classic, I have heard this story since I was a kid. There has been many, MANY rendition of this ghost story to film, to cartoon, to etc.
‘Pee Mak…Phra Khanong’ is produced by GTH productions and is coming out this March 28, 2013.
The part that got me laughing in the teaser was when Mario as Mak was explaining how to pronounce his name to his two friends.
Mario: ‘The truth is, my name should be pronounce like MARK. There is only person who calls me that is Daddy, but he returned to the United States of America with the missionary already.’–Like what! That scene starts at the 1:05 time mark.

The loneliness is killing her.
