A mountain top ritual and prayer session has been held by the makers of Thailand’s Got Talent, a franchise of the hugely successful British Version, after viewers accused the show of angering spirits during their last episode.

The opening sequence including a shot of Na Nuke, a popular comedian, standing on a sacred spot in a temple was the cause of the problem. It is widely believed that Buddha left a footprint at the very spot in the temple in Lampang province where he was seen standing, and due to the feet being the least sacred part of the body in Thai culture great offence was taken to them being placed there.

As outrage spread the show’s producers quickly returned to Wat Chalermprakiat to conduct a ritual to apologise for the mistake. Reports have suggested that the show’s producers were not aware the spot was considered when they shot the footage some months ago. In making the ritual it is hoped that viewers will understand there were no bad intentions.
