PETALING JAYA: A parody video of the so-called “red-shirts” demonstrations as characters of a famous children’s television show is making its rounds in social media.

In the 40-second-video uploaded by Samad Maccaboy, the face of the “red shirt” protestors are replaced with characters of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

The video is accompanied by the soundtrack of the television series and various sound effects when they are being hit by wooden sticks.     

Also making a cameo in the video was Martabat Jalinan Muhibbah Malaysia (MJMM) president Abdul Rani Kulup Abdullah who was not in the original video.     

The group made headlines after videos of their martial arts “demonstrations” went viral on social media.

In showing off their skills in front of Sogo department store on Tuesday, the group's members, in red t-shirts, were seen breaking tiles and wood with their heads and their body.

Calling themselves "peace-loving", the anti-Bersih group said they were preparing themselves for a potentially violent protest during Bersih 4 this weekend.

Its leader, Sungai Besar Umno chief Datuk Jamal Yunos, said to meet any eventuality on Aug 29 and 30, his men had trained with knives and swords as part of their self defence.

Police are probing the group under the Peaceful Assembly Act which allows citizens to organise and participate in assemblies peaceably and without arms, subject to restrictions deemed necessary and in the interest of public order and security.

Police said the group's organisers have been asked to give their statements at 3pm Thursday at the Dang Wangi station.
