I’ve seen a lot of falsh mob/viral/whatever videos but I don’t think I’ve seen anything as strange as the one above. I’m completely at loss for words. [YouTube]

It seems an ad agency in Beirut created a commercial similar to the British T-Mobile advert (Lifes For Sharing) in which a group of people suddenly started dancing in a train station except in our case the dancing takes place at the airport. The commercial is for the company Plus Brokers (which you can clearly see their banner through out the video). I personally prefer the T-Mobile version, first because of the fact they came up with the idea first (although they were inspired by Improv Everywhere’s Frozen Grand Central Station) and secondly because the T-Mobile version looked more real. The dancing in the T-Mobile commercial took place at a crowded station and it looked as if people randomly started joining but with the Beirut Airport version the airport is empty and it then just looks like a group of dancers came in and started dancing. Even though it’s still fun to watch. [YouTube]
Below is the original T-Mobile ad for comparison.
That’s not real of course, it was created by a very creative YouTube user called mantoof4. I don’t know who he is but I love the other videos he’s created which you can check below. I guess he’s like our digital Banksy?
I never saw this ad by Kunhadi until recently and I loved it!
I hope they keep doing such a great job and spread more awareness among Lebanese drivers.
I found this video while searching for footage of the tornado that hit Jbeil few days ago. I recommend playing the video on mute for sensitive ears.
Update: Here’s footage by Eliedh of a lightning strike that he filmed in Feytroun
Are you sure it wasn’t a missile from Israel ya Elie?
Another video of Lebanon by the Huntley Film Archives also shot in 1968. The last video was a general street scene while the video above was filmed at a Bazaar. Not sure where this Bazaar, I figured it might be in Tripoli but that’s just my wild guess. [YouTube]
Huntley Archives just uploaded a video of Lebanon dating back to 1968 and really does look like a scene out of Mad Men. This video doesn’t have any sound but its street shots taken I think in Beirut and the downtown area. I love how nearly all the men are wearing suits! They will be uploading more videos of Lebanon and once they do will post them here. [YouTube]
He had his gf in the car with him. What an idiot, he almost killed Mark Webber in an accident during the F1 season and almost killed himself and his gf in the Race of Champions.
