OK, so now that I am done rolling on the floor and screaming with laughter into the ruined rug (bloody red wine), I’d like to share this video with you all:
It’s funnier if you understand at least some Arabic, but even if you don’t – if you’ve ever been to Jordan, especially to neighbourhoods such as Abdoun in Amman, you’ll get the gist.
Oh, and Ammari’s voice is gorgeous.
Hat-tip to And Far Away.
P.S. One of my boyfriend’s cousins is in this. He’s the cute one. Well, they’re all cute. But you know. The extra-special related-to-boyfriend type cute. 😉

God, I loved this – one of the many instances in which the original is well and truly beaten 😀
Clearly this reflects Jordanians inferiority complex vis a vie the “west”. By imating Nickelback(which happens to be a one note ban, they suck!) you are reinforcing your own stupity as a Muslim people. I hope this isn’t the popular sentiment in the land, if so God help Jordanians.
Anyways just flying thru….
Vulfgang, look up the word “parody” sometime – you might have an amazing revelation.
As for your comments on the female leader, I have deleted them. They’re crass, serve absolutely no purpose, and are disrespectful – not only to her, but to me as well, since I it’s me who would suffer the fall-out from such slander. If you’re going to “fly through” here, get some manners.
I’m familiar with parody(the colbert report) but when you come from the land of the powerful this particular parody can only make you laugh for synister reasons.
I am glad that you deleted the comments on the “Queen”, I wouldn’t want you to have fall out with your Jordanian Fans, hehe.. I have nothing personal against this queen or queens in general. I like queen rania, it must be hard for non-white woman to navigate through a world where white anglo features is the standard of beauty. I hope you do see that there is seriously something wrong for a beautiful woman to commit plastic surgery to conform to a unreasonable and false standard of beauty? Its like asking a tulip to become a rose, its just impossible.
So nobody in the developing world can make fun of a Nickelback song? Hon, do you even know what Ammari is singing? Actually, it doesn’t really matter does it – if you’re convinced there’s a sinister undertone, I’m not going to try changing your mind.
I deleted your comments because they were full of disrespect.
I think body modification in general can be a thorny issue, but people do it for all sorts of reasons, some good, some bad.
I change my hair colour with my mood, for example – and, at the end of the day, it’s nobody’s business but my own.
“I deleted your comments because they were full of disrespect.”
LOL, Natalia I think you need a vacation back to the states, your sounding more and more Arab everyday. Do you know if you surround yourself with people of inferior language skills, your language becomes poor like them. Although I do think it is better that you are in Jordan, maybe that wholesome feeling will return, if you don’t mind me saying.
“Hon” irratates the living crap out of me…so there you go you have irratated this steely man. I’m suberstar, big muscles, look at my moustache(thick arab accent)
Arabs can parody anybody they want, my main point of commenting is to irritate, ruffle your thinking and your notions of life. Im sure a comment won’t do much but I only mean well.
“Body modification” is acceptable if it comes to deformities ie. burns, child defects, or any other deformity. I think it becomes thorny when one has to much money and way too much time to look at the mirror, VANITY anybody. Stuff like ear lifting, nose chiselling, breast implants or collagen injections, just gives me the woolies. people are living, organic and natural creatures not some lifeless, inorganic dead matter like kitchen cabinets or cars to be ultered with boredom.
As for dying your hair that doesn’t classify as plastic surgery but hey that is nobody’s business but yours. So what colour is it this month? Black, pink or neon green??????
Assalam alaikum sister Natalia
