Well done. Funny.Great day for it too considering the Saudi Woman driving protest just occurred.

I must be thoroughly out of touch with the world. What is this? What is every part of it? Is this a parody of a song? Are women protesting for the right to drive somewhere? What happen? Whar?!

It's a parody of this song

In Saudi Arabia, women are forbidden from driving. There was a protest today where as many as 60 women defied the ban.

In Saudi Arabia, woman drive YOU.

Or something. Seriously, it's like Yakov Smirnof's son was raised by Saudis and has just now come of age.

I believe this is intended to be satire, but it's rather sad that this song could actually be played in Saudi Arabia as a PSA supporting the ban on women driving.

Satire usually carries the point to an absurd extreme, to demonstrate the absurdity of the subject it is mocking. In this case, it is almost impossible to be more absurd than the ban and the justifications for that ban.

I believe dafuq is Arabic.

As for the video, it is intended to be satire.  Although, that doesn't mean it's funny, but funnier than if it weren't satire.

So this is what passes for satire in Saudi Arabia?  It's a bit drier than I'm accustomed to, I can't really tell if he is pro or anti denying women to drive.  He talks about things that are obviously demeaning to women and insulting, but to a person that believes it is truly a woman's place....it's a nice song about traditional values.  The goofy glasses and talk about America leads me to believe he's seen that our women drive all the time and are as a group are pretty good at it.  He's really the only one that could know how he meant it to be interpreted, I really didn't see any obvious tells in the video.

Perhaps you missed the part at the beginning where he says "I'm an artist and social activist." :-P

You have to tread lightly in Saudi Arabia. Remember, they're also one of the most repressive countries in the world with regard to free speech.
People in cultures like that are used to subtle messages that American would totally miss.

I always like these threads, since my wife criticizes women drivers more than I.  We play a game of guessing the gender of a driver after they do something stupid.  Aggressive moves are usually male, flakey moves like a lot of lane changes for no purpose in sight is either female or a MSU Alumni.

/I'm not kidding about the MSU comment.

Heh. Driving up to Flint today on US-23, several woman drivers hogging the passing lane, sitting in somebody's blind spot @ 68mph - not understanding why people are pissed off, flashing their brights.

I do believe one of them had Spartan plates, too.

To be fair, people with those special plates tend to be more douchey than other drivers. Let's not leave out the people driving on Dealer plates, too....
