The commercials in
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.
