Bus No 8 finds game fame
Thailand’s notorious Bus No 8 is running in the popular online game GTA V.
The bus, which runs from Happy Land to Saphan Phut, is known as Thailand’s Fast and Furious 8 as a result of frequent accidents and the reckless driving of its drivers.
On June 30, a game player uploaded an episode on YouTube which shows the blue-andwhite bus running amok in Grand Theft Auto V.
A report on Sanook said a Thai gamer digitally inserted the bus into the game.
In the game, the bus maintains its reputation. It is seen running in a city at a high speed, hitting buildings and structures in its path. Eventually, it hits a curb and sends its driver flying out covered in blood.
While many users simply take it as a gag, some said having one of the country’s buses featured in a negative way in a well-known game is not something in which Thais should feel proud.
