There is now Indisputable photographic evidence that Godzilla was responsible for the bits missing from the MahaNakhon building. There are also lots of eye-witnesses and a email sent to Hillary Clinton (via Moscow) in which Godzilla claims responsibility.
United States Navy Seals were able to trace Godzilla's IP Address to a Moo Bahn (Gated Community) in Chiang Mai. On Wednesday morning they mounted a raid on the hideout. They found that Godzilla had disguised himself as a garden ornament and immediately shot him dead. His body was dumped in the Gulf of Thailand, in case anyone doubted that he really existed.
The BMA (Bangkok Metropolitan Authority) has now issued a thousand page report on the incident. Most of this (99.9%) has been redacted for reasons of National Security. However, the first sentence “On the morning of August 30, Godzilla ate two large sections of the MahaNakhon building.” and the last two sentences “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” remain visible (apparently the redactor's felt marker ran out of ink).
The report was immediately challenged by conspiracy theorists calling themselves “Zoologists, Architects and Engineers for MahaNakhon Truth”. They claim that giant lizards no longer exist and, even if they did, they could not chew out a large section of a 77 story steel high-rise.
The conspiracy theorist fail to take into account the dozens of eye-witnesses. These can be heard on a new Documentary prepared by Private Tye and the BBC. The interview with Prasit Pedestrianalai is typical:
Private Tye: Did you see Godzilla on Tuesday morning?
Prasit: What? Who?
Private Tye: Godzilla.
Prasit (who has now noticed the BBC reporter waving 1,000 baht notes in the air): Oh yes, Godzilla.
Private Tye: Was he going towards MahaNakhon?
Prasit: Yes, that's right. Going towards the MahaNakhon building. Definitely Godzilla, no doubt about it.
The BBC documentary concludes that after six days, conspiracy theorists continue to disbelieve the official account even though they have no evidence against it.
STOP PRESS. Private Tye has just learned that the owners of MahaNakhon may have invited Godzilla to visit, because they wanted the building “wrapped by a dragon”.
Here is the story from Khaosod:
BANGKOK — Afraid of ghosts?
Bangkok’s new tallest building may have gone up next to a cemetery, but a top executive of the company which owns the building insists the spirits are on their side.
The 77-story Mahanakorn near lower Silom Road is next to an old Hokkien Chinese Christian cemetery, but the company’s managing director, Kipson Beck, said at the building’s opening party that possible concerns about poltergeists – a genuine fear in Thailand – were sorted out in advace.
“We debated early. We originally mentioned that this might be a question,” said Beck, insisting the issue has not stopped anyone from buying one of the 209 luxury condominiums comprising the Ritz-Carlton Residences. In fact, more than 70 percent of the units, which start at a price point that may give the spirits pause – 45 million baht.
“According to our spiritual advisors, the spirits are strong, very powerful. They can be powerful to help us,” Beck said.
He assured that developer Pace, which owns the mixed-used building, organized Buddhist, Christian and Brahmin ceremonies to ensure the spirits will be on their side. The cemetery is just behind the project to the north on Soi Silom 9.
Beck added a feng shui note that while some see MahaNakhon’s architectural design being incomplete, others see a it wrapped by a dragon, which generates positive energy.
