The world’s first Wahhabist music video

The plot, such as it is, is exactly what you’d expect it to be: five times a day, sucka, or you’ll lose your girl and just maybe end up semi-conscious on the asphalt after Allah takes revenge. The combo of establishment mores and an anti-establishment medium reminds me of the Simpsons’ take on Canadian graffiti: “Obey the rules.”
The scene where our hero is caught macking on a Riyadh hottie appears to take place in a mall. Er, is that legal?
Update: Bill Ardolino e-mails: “That video isn’t wahhabist. It looks like a reaction specifically tailored to the army of rich arab trust fund babies that drink, smoke and drag race souped up automobiles from stop light to stop light while acting like part of Paris Hilton’s entourage.”
Update: Here’s something else that’s running on Saudi TV right now. Click the image to watch.
