(Video) ‘Nasi Goreng Kicap Manis’ Said by Minions In New Movie Trailer, Makes Many Malaysians Excited

Published

on

A few days ago viral on social media with Minions using a few words that sounded like Bahasa Malaysia in a teaser trailer video for the movie Minions: The Rise of Gru was shared.

The Bahasa Malaysia words that appear and were heard in the short video are ‘Nasi Goreng Kicap Manis’.

Did Bob just ask for “Nasi Goreng Kicap Manis”? Said TGV on their Facebook page.

Although it only lasted less than a minute and only three words from what the Minions said was understood, it was enough to make netizens especially Malaysians excited about the matter.

Not only that, but many people might be interested in the use of those words and finally decided to Google and learn more about the language used by these Minions.

The main question is, whether Bahasa Malaysia is included in the language used by Minions in their previous conversations and communication with each other? Or just used as a gimmick for this latest movie?

Our search for an answer to this question was finally answered after we came across an article written by an overseas entertainment portal, Loopers. The article explains in detail what language these Minions use. First of all, the language used by Minions is known as ‘constructed language’ or if translated into Bahasa Malaysia it is literally a built language. Or maybe even a designed language.

The language used by Minions was first produced by the two co-directors of the film, Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud – specifically to use characters that are synonymous with this yellow color.

“Minionese, or sometimes called Banana Language because of Minion’s interest in the fruit, comes from several real languages ​​including English, French, Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Indian and several other languages,” the article explained.

Not wanting to be satisfied with one source, we then searched for a few more articles and articles by this Vox portal confirming it is a spontaneously generated language and borrowing a few words from the real languages ​​of the world.

“Coffin has said the Minions speak a gibberish language that he spontaneously invents (albeit one that is infused with the occasional real word or phrase borrowed from a real language),” explained Vox.

So, if you listen and read the explanations given where they borrow the major languages ​​of this world, then it is not something extraordinary if our language is also used.

In fact, this is not the first time the name of food from the real world has been mentioned by the Minions and they have mentioned the Indian dish ‘poulet tikka masala’ in Despicable Me 2 before.

And if it has already made an appearance in the trailer, the question now is whether this word will remain in use for the upcoming film?

Or there will be more languages borrowed besides Bahasa Malaysia. That question may have been answered when the sequel was released in July 2021.

A user on Twitter, under the name @mayom____, has shared a video, showing a man who’s making roti canai, a very popular dish in Malaysia, while singing to a Malay song.

Turns out, the man in the video is the actual singer of the song! He used to sing and entertain fans, now it does not win the hand of serving customers and spreading roti canai at a shop in Kampung Sungai Petai.

In the tweet, there was a Twitter user who explained that the man was the vocalist of the group Arrow, Ringgo, which was once popular in Malaysia.

That is the routine life of the vocalist, Ringgo which is far different compared to 26 years ago. He serves food now for a living, especially after the Movement Control Order (PKP) started last March.

In the video, you can see the man flipping roti canai as he sings the lyrics to his song, ever so effortlessly. For the full video, you all can watch it here that was uploaded by Nick Yie Channel.
