Michelle & Noel Keserwany’s camel invading Beirut DT
By Admin I : After a quite raging wave of “hate-comments” and accusing us of being cynical and unprofessional (which we thought was obvious in our name “brofessional”-duuh), a gift from heaven just fell on our heads!
2 girls that we loved since their first releases “Jagal el usek” and “baddi sir star” and were able to express many of the topics we actually tackle in our blog, released a new song and video that is bluntly daring, fresh, cynical and as true as social criticism can be!
“aa jamal bi wasat Beirut” is more like a piece of Dadaism, an intervention taking the form of a music video. Michelle and Noel spoke our minds, and expressed what we’ve been living and thinking about for years in a capital that belongs to rich foreigners, where we can barely walk, talk or shop, and as they brilliantly state it:
Have you ever felt when going to Downtown Beirut that you’re at the sidelines of some ”power” contest where ”la creme de la creme” of the population is found parading with their newest cars, trendiest clothes, tallest cigars… And that when you dare enter their perfect little world at the risk of being stared to death, you sense that you’re being deprived of enjoying the beauty of the city?? Well who said that it’s illegal to be less fortunate and go to DT? Better yet, who said it’s against the law to go there riding a camel?!?! A group of friends and us tried to see the outcome of that theory by actualy entering the capital city on camels! And that was the reaction! Enjoy!!!!
Congrats to the girls and their creative experimental use of music and visual communication, and the engaging outcome that was shot by several cameras ranging from cell phone cameras to photo cameras to video cameras gathered by amateurs and their friends on the streets of Beirut, wishing a bright future for such talents and giving them a well deserved “brofessional” badge! (don’t ask me what that is!)
