basuki, the man in the "Wes-ewes-ewes, Bablas Angine" advertisement, died yesterday.

he died of a cause familiar to indonesians: of a heart attack after playing a game of soccer. this seems to be a leading cause of death amongst indonesian comedians.

Though two of Indonesia's best did not succumb to heart attacks after years of doing Benny Hill impressions: Kasino died in 1997 at age 47 of a brain tumor. Dono died in 2001 at age 50 of lung cancer. Indro masih hidup.

And yes, "wes-ewes-ewes, bablas angine" - best Indonesian advertising slogan/spoken jingle. Can only pray that dasar gondrong yng tidak lucu, Komeng, doesn't take over those ads.

Oh that's a shame - I rather liked him.

I've always maintained that any form of physical exertion is dangerous and this confirms it.
