After a two-year hiatus due to the global pandemic, the local Merdeka parade came back in full force yesterday, with a large crowd in attendance standing in awe of the intimidating army tankers, adorable service-dogs in booties, and… abang bomba flashing their guns?
Yup, among the numerous viral clips captured by attendees, those which have seemed to gain the most traction are recordings of onlookers unapologetically fangirling over local firemen flexing and waving to the crowd with fire extinguishers in hand.

It’s no secret that lots of women are suckers for men in uniform, but yelling “Save me, Abang! Shoot me, Abang!” at them in a public setting takes guts. Netizens were quick to point that out, filling the comments section with tons of laughter and disbelief.
Some even made jokes saying “new sound unlocked”, implying that the hilarious audio may just be incorporated into more funny videos for our viewing pleasure. I personally can’t wait to see what creative Malaysian TikTokers will do with it…
Attractive men aside, though, can we talk about how satisfying it is to be able to witness a full crowd enthusiastically celebrating our country once again?
Happy Independence Day, everyone!
