The Anwar effect?
Malaysians and their eye precision, we're telling ya! Yesterday, during the official swearing in ceremony of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the 10th PM of Malaysia many eyes were locked on one very little detail- the Artline 210 pen used by him to sign the documents.
Many people were commenting on his gesture of bringing his own pen to the ceremony. Decades of trust issues, maybe? We kid!
PM Ke-10 guna pen RM2.35 untuk tandatangan warkah perlantikan.— Fakhri (@fakhrifadzli) November 24, 2022
Lepas ni saya nak guna pen ni jugaklah untuk tandatangan buku. pic.twitter.com/lOLyCD4DNG
User @fakhrifadzli posted the pen on Twitter along with a screenshot to a Shopee link and it sold out not even a day later! Who knew a cheap pen would get this much publicity once it's in the hands of a prime minister, ey?
Will you be getting this pen anytime soon, too?
