PETALING JAYA, July 19 — A durian seller went viral last weekend after humorously promoting his RM500 durian, exorbitantly priced because ‘it never touched the ground’.
The video shared by Wan Mahussin Wan Zain, took a twist when he said the fruit never touched the ground, because it had fallen on his car, smashing his rear windscreen.

It was worth a good laugh, but Wan Mahussin had a surprise when he got an offer to buy the durian from Minister of Human Resources Datuk Seri M. Saravanan.
Speaking to Malay Mail, Wan Mahussin said that he received a phone call from an unknown number last night.
“I couldn’t believe that it was the Human Resources Minister calling, and he said that he wanted to buy that durian.
“But I told him that it was not possible as I had eaten the durian.
“But he still wanted me to have the money to fix my windscreen and to compensate for my loss.
“Honestly, I’m just so grateful because initially, I felt down thinking of how much I have to pay to fix my smashed windscreen,” he said.
Wan Mahussin who hails from Shah Alam added that although a net was prepared to catch durians around his home, one missed the net and unfortunately landed on his car.
