This video is currently going viral here in Thailand. In it, a female contestant on Thailand's Got Talent comes out onto the stage, starts painting on a blank canvas, takes off her shirt and bra, pours paint on herself and then proceeds to go to work on the canvas with her bare chest. But actress, model and singer Pornchita "Benz" na Songkhla is not happy, especially when the act gets two yeses!

ดวงใจ ศิลปะเรือนร่าง Thailand's Got Talent S2 17 June 2012


There's so much that could be said about this clip. What most surprises me is that the act was given the green light and made it onto national TV, even if it falls under the bracket of performance art. High-profile displays of public nudity don't usually go down very well.
READ MORE  goes on to say an act like this is a further example of the deterioration of Thai society caused by the influence of foreign ways.

Topless female painter on ‘Thailand’s Got Talent’ TV show stirs morality debate

BANGKOK — An episode of “Thailand’s Got Talent” has stirred a morality debate after a contestant painted a canvas using her bare breasts, drawing a rebuke from the culture minister who called it “very shocking.”

Culture Minister Sukumol Kunplome said Monday that nudity on television is not considered appropriate in Thai society. She said the show’s producers have been summoned to explain why the segment was broadcast and the ministry will then decide whether to take action.

“This program is intended to showcase the talent of Thai people and it usually encourages youths to show their special skills,” the minister told reporters. “Still, there have to be some limits.”

The show, broadcast Sunday on Thailand’s Channel 3, featured 23-year-old Duangjai Jansaunoi, who walked onstage barefoot in jeans and a baggy men’s button-down shirt. She introduced herself as an independent artist from northern Thailand.

She then turned to a large canvas and painted a yellow outline of a person. She then removed her shirt, unhooked a black bra and doused herself with several tins of paint before turning to the audience with a broad smile to display her multicolored torso. The area around her breasts was blurred out by censors.

As dance music played, the contestant used her body as a paintbrush to fill in the outline.

Some in the audience gasped with hands over their mouths, while others cheered her on.

“If I paint in a normal way, then it would be too ordinary,” Duangjai told the judges after being handed a towel to cover up.

The judges then debated whether her act could be considered art.

“I’m not saying this is not good, but it’s not appropriate,” said the panel’s only female judge, actress Pornchita Na Songkhla. “Within the Thai cultural context, I don’t support this.”

As online chatter soared, some called Pornchita a hypocrite and posted photos from a 2010 fashion shoot in which her naked torso was covered with melted chocolate.

The panel’s two male judges advanced Duangjai to the next round.

“This is an art form. If we were in Italy, like Florence or Milan, or the Czech Republic, say Prague, this would be OK,” said singer Jirayut Wattanasin. The audience roared in support, many flashing “V for victory” signs.

Thailand’s Got Talent issued an apology late Monday.

Panya Nirandkul, the head of Workpoint Entertainment, which produces the show, was quoted by the Thairath newspaper as saying he was not aware the contestant would be topless and denied the act was staged to boost ratings. He vowed not to let the mistake happen again, Thairath reported.

Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country which remains largely conservative, despite its freewheeling image and a flourishing sex industry. Censors in Thailand regularly target a range of social offenses, blurring out cigarettes, alcohol and nudity on television and in movies.

BEC fined Bt500,000 for airing bare-breast Thailand's Got Talent
(.)(.)
Bangkok Entertaintment Company (BEC), the operator of Thai TV3, had been fined Bt500,000 by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission (NBTC) over its mistake to air a female contestant painted on canvas with her bare breasts on its prime time show Thailand's Got Talent on Sunday.

Perapong Manakij, chairman of the NBTC's subcommittee on programming and content, said Wednesday that under the Broadcasting Act 2010, the fine was a high level penalty in case of violate the article 37 because the TV station failed to self-censor an inappropriate content that was screened on its primetime programme.

500k is nothing for these companies (like Channel 3) compared to the publicity acquired, which certainly couldn't be bought for the same price.

Imo......very limp, because it wasn't live and they could have edited it if they had the slightest decency or reservations about it, but seems their ratings were on the slide so it all seems so designed.

Imagine that here! ::)

The same female judge who walked out during the show didn't seem to mind this performance by a Thai male.  Song Na.  At 5:01 of the video one of the two fags touches the guy's dic.k  Look closely.  Pornchita thinks it's funny and says, "bah."  Why is this performance ok and the other one of the girl doing titty art not ok?

Boy Thai band to protest against TGT

Pisces Music plans to protest against "Thailand's Got Talent" producers for allegedly violating its copyrights and using the company's copyrighted songs in an inappropriate way.
The show used the song "Andaman Sun" from Boy Thai's second album as the backdrop for the recent controversial painting-by-breast episode. The company, which holds the copyright on the band's songs, said as the show has now been uploaded to YouTube, and people may misunderstand the band's involvement.

Managing director Amporn Chakkaphak said that the company had promoted Boy Thai's three albums overseas and that the band had promoted Thai culture since it was founded in 1987. "We are not very pleased that the music has been used in an inappropriate way," she said.
