Bluetooth -Syrian Pop Culture
I haven’t been in the Menshieh (a café in Tartous) for a while. Two days ago I went there to have a Msabbha breakfast with some friends. What happens normally (I have Bluetooth enabled on my mobile phone to automatically activate my car kit) is that I get one request after another to accept messages from total strangers. I normally refuse all of them. If I look around the crowded place to just speculate who might be interested in sending these brainless jokes I always draw a blank. The boys and gals all look like nice, well meaning kids but obviously this is the “in” thing nowadays.
I, inadvertently, received these 3 video clips on my mobile. I searched YouTube and to my great surprise found all three of them. So now I can share with you these original works of art.
I liked the first one a lot (Syrian Tom & Jerry) although it should’ve been called (Tom & Jerry: Tartous County). The second one (Adnan wa Lina) is OK, funny but after you’ve seen the first one it’s a little bit of a letdown. Now the third (Kids Fighting at School) is a shocker. Especially when you learn that it was captured by the teacher of the 2 kids. Pardon me for saying so, but Kiss Ikht Hek 3elem.
A twisted sense of humor indeed, but this is part of our pop culture.
