Oops! Thai Junta to re-edit core values school film featuring boy painting Hitler

A propaganda film commissioned by Thailand’s military regime was supposed to promote the ’12 core values’ all Thai youths must learn.

But there was one scene the junta has had trouble explaining: a grinning schoolboy painting an image of Adolf Hitler while his smiling classmate applauds.

The video, screened before films in major cinemas since Saturday, has been met with ridicule on social media and condemned by the Israeli Embassy in Bangkok.
