A FORMER Democrat Party MP said in a Facebook post that the government should honour megastar Russell Crowe by giving him a plaque or a medal for sharing photos and videos of Bangkok and Phuket as mounting this sort of a publicity would have cost 200 million baht, Sanook.com said today (Oct. 23).
Mr. Thepthai Senpong, former Democrat Party MP from Nakhon Si Thammarat, said Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has thanked both Russell Crowe and his co-star Zac Efron who are here for the filming of the movie “The Greatest Beer Run Ever” but that is not enough.
Thepthai added that Prayut could appoint the “Gladiator” star an honourary tourism ambassador or a VIP presenter of Thailand’s tourism if he sees fit.
The latest photo the megastar shared on Twitter is with Pol.Sen.Sgt.Anirut Malee with the caption saying “Met my hero today. Police Officer Anirut !.”
He had watched CCTV footage of the officer talking to an elderly man who held a knife to his own throat because he was stressed out over personal matters. The police officer succeeded in persuading him to not commit sucide and the clip ends with the elderly man hugging him.
He had also posted photos of himself at the restaurant of Michelin star winner Jay Fai with this being his Lost in Bangkok episode 5.
