The 2006 Thai comedy movie "Lucky Loser" was originally filmed to be about a soccer team from Laos, but was later re-edited to replace Laos with a fictional country named Arvee, after complaints from Laotians, as the film mostly plays on stereotypes of Laos. The film introduces Arvee as having reached the second stage of World Cup as a lucky loser, just as Laos had really done during 2006 FIFA World Cup qualification.
