If you’ve ever wondered about the origins of the modern “Zouzou Ebba”, check out this 1979 video shot in Beirut with bikers pulling some crazy stunts. Zero security measures, zero safety and the bikers are not even wearing a helmet. I’m not sure about the location but this looks like Ramlet el Baida.

It’s good to know not much has changed. A couple of years ago, we had a similar reckless event called “Beirut Grand Prix” where two supercars crashed.
