With over 792k Instagram followers and 475k YouTube subscribers, 25-year-old Mohammad Sofian is known for his video collaborations featuring local and international artists such as Malaysian actress Nellofa, American actor Will Smith and internet personality Zach King (which Sofian claims to be his idol).
John Cena featured in Sofyank96’s video, attempts to speak Malay
To add to his flaunt-worthy list of collaborators, the Kelantan-born social media star recently released a video featuring WWE wrestler John Cena in promoting the new Fast and Furious movie, F9, the ninth installation to the Fast & the Furious franchise. Besides the jaw-dropping collaboration with WWE world champion, netizens couldn’t help but beam with ‘Malaysian-pride’ at John Cena’s attempt to speak Bahasa Malaysia in the video.
The 42-second clip uploaded on Sofian’s YouTube channel, Sofyank96 begins with Sofian telling John to “tengok ni” (look here), saying that he has a surprise for him, to which John attempts a rather successful “tengok apa (look at what)?”.
Sofian then removes a gigantic toy canon from his exclusive-looking suitcase and fires a shot into the air. John Cena proves his language ability once again with a “bapak powerlah Sofian” (that’s powerful Sofian). The ‘bapak’ reference was what truly stole the heart of many Malaysians.
If you listen closely, you will hear that John used the slang “cun” (nice) to describe the ‘gigantic toy’ that Sofian had prepared for him! At the time of writing, the video stands at 328k views on YouTube. Malaysians are proud of you for being able to pull off a collab with John, Sofian!
