A driver who purposely covered his own vehicle with mud has drawn attention all over Pattaya over the past few weeks.
The Pattaya news reporters found the mud covered sedan parked at Pattaya Walking Street today. Locals and tourists were excited to take photos with the driver and his mud covered sedan. The vehicle has been going viral on social media for weeks and The Pattaya News took a moment to speak with the driver and his thought process behind the idea.
The vehicle owner, Mr. Prasert Panuekthong, 49, from Rayong told The Pattaya News that he has several businesses in Rayong. He lives alone, has no immediate family and likes to do things that are unique and different from others.
He uses a special mud mix with clay to cover his sedan. He wanted to make himself unique as well as to make something interesting when other people saw him and his sedan. He stated he will continue to keep his sedan like this and is stopped for photos, videos and even autographs daily for the idea. His vehicle, according to him, has gone viral not just across Thailand but across Asia in photos and videos.
Prasert said some people, including law enforcement, were worried about his visibility, especially at night, but he clarified with them that he had full visibility in the vehicle. He said local law enforcement officers inspected the vehicle and said that it was roadworthy.
