Former PM Somchai resorts to magic rite at a temple to ward off his bad luck

Former PM Somchai advised “let it be” after resorting to magic rite to ward off bad luck in a night dream – thaipbs.or.th, July 31, 2015
[Thanks to Tom for pointing this out.]
…Phra Khru Banoi Tejapanyo then performed a magic rite by anointing gold leaves at nine locations on his body – face, forehead, right and left cheeks, palms, and then used the sacred stick of the late Luang Poo Tim to touch all the nine locations in his body and head along with chanting a pray.
The abbot then gave him a statute of Phra Khru Banoi and tied his wrists with red ropes…

Of course, this does not mean that Thai people are crazy or eccentric. This sort of ritual is well within the norms of belief for Thai society.
