to me, a full fledged “internet” society has their own meme. case in point, ROLFcon & KnowYourMeme. two weeks ago, before heading into Iraq, i was looking for examples of arab internet memes. @timhwang pointed out Eden Abergil and Makmende. Now my buddy Josh heller points out the following classic meme.
الابتسامه القاتله – “Vulgar Smile”
This video is very funny. It’s also killing it in Saudi Arabia. This is the first time I’ve ever seen a funny viral from the Arab world. I need to brush up on my Arabic to locate more “Vulgar Smiles” (Though this guy is Filipino)
