Singaporean sitcom star Chen Tianwen, 陈天文 (Chén tiān wén) is on course to becoming an Internet hit because of his kitschy music video Unbelievable.

The video was produced for Singapore’s Channel 5 sitcom Spouse for House 2 and is intended as a flashback to explain why Chen’s character always says “un-n-n-n-n-believable.

It is apparently a video for local sitcom “Spouse for House”.

Inspired by famous ’70s Singaporean singer Huang Qing Yuan [黃清元 (Huáng qīng yuán)..曼莉 (Màn lì)], Chen dons a dodgy floral shirt, an enormous wig and sings a very badly dubbed Chinese-style karaoke song to serenade a girl who’s so un-un-un-unbelievable that she leaves him “stunned like vegetable.

With other classic lyrics such as “Come be my coffee table and I’ll be your sofa … please be the metal cable to my cable car,” and some fantastically comical dance moves, this video is your instant mood lifter for the day. You’re welcome.

The lyrics: (Posted by Tan Xing Qi on 13 April 2015)
Un-un-un-un-unbelievable that’s what you are
Come be my coffee table and I’ll be your sofa
Un-un-un-un-unbelievable so near yet so far
Please be the metal cable to my cable car
You blossom like a flower
I so stunned like vegetable
My girl you are
Un-un-un-un-un-un-un-unbelievable

Just when you thought a nonsensical English lyrics “I so stunned like vegetable” is unbelievable, you need to check out this awesome remix of Unbelievable made viral by MediaCorp actor Chen Tianwen and country-folk-techno Timbre by Pitbull featuring Kesha.
