Crazy Video: Wild Arabic Dancing In Texas
Arab culture has an image problem. Most outsiders think they don't have any fun. As one acquaintance informed me, "Arabs are a dour lot."
He'd never actually hung out with any Arabs. Anyone who has can tell you that they do have a sense of fun, as this video shows. Uploader noxalicious tells us this was filmed in Cafe Layal in Houston, Texas. This guy gets so into the music that he ends up on a table shaking what he's got for all it's worth. I've seen guys dance like this at weddings in Egypt and parties in Syria, but they weren't quite so ... jiggly.
If you want some more Arabic humor, here's a video about Saudis in Audis, sent to me by Facebook friend and British Muslim activist Shelina Zahra Janmohamed. Somehow it was funnier coming from her.
