Mobinil Ramadan song 2012

Asalamu Alaykom,





The commercials in Egypt during Ramadan are akin to the Superbowl commercials in America.  They are special.  They are high quality and strive to be talked about.  This video is from Mobilnil, a cell phone provider.  You never see the product.  What you see are the people and the places of Egypt.  If you want to know why I can swell with pride for this adopted home of mine, this video certainly helps.  If you’ve ever visited Egypt and miss it, this video will make you smile and cry with a wistfulness.

The funny thing is that this video, for all it’s staging, feels amazingly real.  I know that the places are a little cleaner; as are the children.  It’s a nicer Egypt yet it’s remarkably true to life.  I know this Egypt, Alhumdulillah.

I wanted you to know it too.
