M Video: “Oohoo! Farangs show the Thais how to plow with a buffalo!”

Thai TV featured a segment that showed seven westerners in a buffalo plowing contest.

Up and down they went doing it in a traditional way – these guys needed no tractor!

It was a competition in the village of Ban Pan Rua in Surin in Thailand’s north east.

Competitors came from Iceland, England, Scotland, Austria, Canada, Holland and Switzerland.

Emerging victorious was Kerry from Iceland (the story in Thai said Iceland anyway, though we suspect he might have been Irish with a name like that…). Second was the guy from Switzerland.

The presenters enjoyed themselves conjecturing that the village must have a lot of pretty women for so many farang son-in-laws to be present.

Though later the male presenter suggested, hopefully tongue in cheek, that one of the buffaloes in a “Pretty Khwai” contest was one of their wives.

TNA said that excitement was at fever pitch for the contest.

Later on there was a competition for all-comers.
