The ManU 1 - 6 Man City match yesterday is well covered in media for many reasons, mainly because nobody expect Manchester United could be beaten by 3 goal advantage; Let alone 5.
Netizens are buzzing in Facebook walls, blogs and news commentaries on the huge defeat of the Red Devils by its neighbor, highlighting the fact that one of the 6 goals was from a knee - kick.
Considering United's consistent wins, supporters of other clubs would be constantly waiting for the chance to witness its defeat and rubbing it in the face of its fans.
However, unique to Netizens from Malaysia, the comments online are full of inside jokes referring to 2 particular advertisements involving the EPL club on Malaysian local television.
First advertisement was by TM (a telco corporation) about a Malaysian boy named Ramli who grew up to become the first Malaysian MU player, to make his father proud.
The second advertisement was by a Malaysian food company and its potato chips product called Mister Potato who is a sponsor of MU club. The advertisement shows a handful number of MU players promoting the snack food while wearing their jersey.
So most of the jokes insinuate the following:
1. They lost the game 6-1 because Sir Alex kept "Ramli" benched and forgot to unleash this new imported player
2. The game was so bad due to MU players eating unhealthy snacks
3. "Ramli" telling his father that he scored a goal, expecting praises, but was scolded by his father instead because "the other side scored 6!!"
