Gangnam Style has hit Egypt : Hobba Egyptian Style

I just saw this on TV. I didn't even know that Gangnam Style has hit Egypt yet but apparently this has been out for a while.

And if people were debating if Gangnam Style was cynical or not, I tell you people THIS is cynicism in it's best way. I love it.

Alert: The translations on the video has NOTHING to do with the meaning of it. I really don't understand what they are doing with it .

according to the english transcription, they're talking about avocados, hope basic stores, financial systems, and dot blots.

I have no idea what that captions are about but it's not what the song is saying AT ALL.

idk apart from that video I didn't see anything in Egypt that shows the Gangnam fever here and I just found that some tv shows talked about it

His pronunciation of Gangnam is killing me

Lol I experienced something similar. I was at Disney's Animal Kingdom today, and at the Lion King Festival Timon started doing Gangnam Style and I was just like XD "...wow, speechless". I guess it's not surprising anymore. I'm just still in shock that it got and is so big. It's really real. So weird. @_@

My country joined the bandwagon, personally I thought it was well made.

Just a little disclaimer, there's a running joke in Saudi that our super hero is the average man, the guy who wears his underwear at home drinking Miranda.
The white shirt and white long trousers is what men wear under the thoub (The long white dress) and it's considered "underwear".

I'm arab yes ^^ not egyptian tho. I'm palestian but the family all grew up in lebanon. and some are living in syria and jordan now. So I'm familiar with lebanese and palestian dialects the most. I can sort of keep up with egyptian tho. but the other north african dialects are lost on me XD
hagar_tammaa 23rd-Nov-2012 12:41 am (UTC)
ha don't worry I talk arabic and understand very well but I still can't keep up with the other north african dialects (I understand their french better and I suck at french haha)
