Meet the super hot moto-taxi driver you’ve been waiting for

You won’t need a better excuse to hold on tight.

A male model who operates a moto-taxi for part-time work became famous overnight after his model body was spotted in the iconic orange vest by a celebrity TV host, who conveniently took a photo that went viral.

“I was talking with my assistant in the car when she said ‘Hot … moto-taxi driver! I’ve never seen such a hot one in my life!’” recounted Woody, the host of WoodyTalk, in the caption shared online Tuesday. “So I got my camera and took his photo. Would you react the same way as my assistant?”

Moto dude’s name is Dechapat Thanadawong, and he is attached to a moto-taxi station in front of the Rama IX Hospital.

“I’m a model and a moto-taxi driver,” he responded via Instagram. “It’s so awesome when I don’t have modeling jobs. I drive a motorcycle for money.”

Dechapat said it’s better to get out and work even less glamorous jobs.

“It’s better than staying home and pointlessly waiting for good luck,” he wrote. “Don’t be embarrassed to work. Don’t be offended by small money!”
