KUALA LUMPUR: Hasbullah Awang fans all over Malaysia rejoiced today, for they will now have the chance to listen to the sweet sounds of their idol's commentary during the 2010 World Cup later this year.
Internet celebrity Yo Rais announced today that RTM (Rancangan Tergendala Malaysia) will have EXCLUSIVE rights to the World Cup! (only for 35 games though. You'll have to go to the mamak stall for the remaining 29 matches, or just turn on your Astro).
Yo Rais even announced a special slogan for the exclusive privilege - 1Malaysia, 1World Cheer.
"Astro ade 3D, kite ada 1Malaysia, 1World Cheer. Orang yang ancient macam saya pun tau bahawa nombor satu adalah lebih baik dari nombor tiga kan?" he was later rumoured to have told his drebar.
Rumours that Hasbullah Awang is planning to consult Shebby Singh on how to pronounce names like Sotirios Kyrgiakos (Ki-ri-gi-a-kos?) and Samir Handanovič (apasal name dia ade tanda BETUL punya?) were unfounded at press time.
