Filed under: Videos — Tags: — Khaled A. @ 1:59 pm

أبل لم تكن بحاجة أن تدفع 3.5 مليون دولار للإعلان أثناء Super Bowl مثل سامسونج. فيكفيها الدعاية المجانية من لاعبي فريق NY Giants بسبب إستخدامهم للآيفون ككاميرا لتصوير الكأس.

Apple got their own free Super Bowl advert.

The family-only madness now reaches bottled soda. Imagine “family size” coke bottles restricted to families, no singles allowed to buy it. Enjoy the video:

Video by Malik Nejer. Thanks keloud for twittering it.

In case you don’t know, “family only” locations are popular in Saudi Arabia.

Reckless Drifting videos

Filed under: Videos — Tags: , , , , , — Khaled A. @ 3:15 pm

Nothing is more annoying and dangerous than this “reckless drifting” (aka Tafheet تفحيط) craze in Saudi Arabia. As if bad driving wasn’t enough we add recklessness to the unstable mix.

Look at the following image: a BMW 745 parked sideways in the middle of King Abdullah road and most likely it was “drifting” recklessly. Notice the huge dent in the front.

I posted some videos I found that were taken in the same are of Riyadh: King Abdullah Road, in front of KSU entrance and near Raka’a Center (Here’s a Gowalla link)

YAYA! (funny videos)

Filed under: Videos — Tags: , , — Khaled A. @ 9:00 pm

I have to say that this guy is brilliant. His name is Yehya (called YAYA by Jimmy Kimmel) and he’s from Egypt. He lives in LA and he meets a lot of celebrities.

Enjoy the videos, he is extremely funny.

One more note: extra thanks to Jimmy Kimmel Live page on Youtube for allowing visitors from Saudi Arabia to watch the videos. A few months ago visitors from Saudi Arabia face “This video contains content from Jimmy Kimmel Live . Who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds” message but now it’s available! Make sure to thank them on Twitter: JimmyKimmellive.
