The Shoat Statements

Random musings by the multiple voices inside my head.

Sri Lanka's obsession with reality TV has reached new heights:



Follow a group ordinary middle class Sri Lankans into an exciting adventure into the unknown. See how they try to withstand the harsh and hostile environment of Colombo city with nothing but a month’s salary! It’s a battle of wits and physical endurance as our brave contestants experience price hikes and state taxes, dodge bombs and speeding private buses, endure political speeches, local pop music and teledramas.

Who will make it to the end of the month? In the end there can only be one.


Hosted by the inimitable hip hop legend Iraj, Pimp My Trishaw puts the bling back in your trishaw! Check out the episode where Iraj and his crew, South Westside Panchikawatte Autos, surprise Wakaputu Handi Sunil (license ne!). No more a beat up brakeless killing machine, the crew modify the trishaw with original stolen parts; a Pioneer Radio/Cassette with super ‘buffel’ system at the back, a secret marijuana/kitchen knife compartment. Of course, all this is in addition to the neon pink paint job with luminous yellow ‘American Eagle’ and ‘4WD’ stickers. This gansta episode also features the a wide range of Tommy Hilfiger t-shirts from No Limit.


The Sri Lanka Rupavihini Corporation makes a comeback in entertainment with this highly acclaimed reality TV show. Follow our charming host Mervyn Silva as he walks into media offices around the island and beat unsuspecting employees to a pulp. An anonymous (and injured) spokesperson for the station said this is the first time they've ever telecast something real, honest and unedited. He also said this is the highest rated show followed by the 223rd rerun of Robin Hood.
