It has been a while since I watched TV, video clips mainly, just to run over Amar’s new video today on Melody!
I won’t talk about the music or the song itself since that is a whole different issue. What bothered me is the video itself! First thing came up to my mind watching that video was; since when they started filming songs in whorehouses?
I never knew that video clip making is a synonym for pornography? Or it just sells more that way? On that note, it will be selling what exactly? Jad Choueiry was obvious at least that he left his phone number with his famous “call me” or “كلمني”.
To be clear I’m not against that! Not against the video in particular or whatever this “singer” or that, likes to do in her\his free time.
But I’m against screening such a video clip the whole day on a channel easily accessed by young children.
Did it ever occurred to you that this will be affecting the youth negatively? Come on that would only lead to a screwed up generation! Yes more screwed up than this! And what actually pisses me off that we have limits and laws for what to say and not say, everywhere, but we have no limits for videos like that!
So you can’t speak up your mind about any issue but you can strip on TV. Or you can speak up your mind, but we won’t listen unless you strip!
I’m not, by any way, undermining body’s needs or saying it’s wrong or bad. But it’s really sad to see little kids trying to fulfill their desires in the time that they don’t know what desire is! Not knowing what an orgasm is! That is not only sad but freaky as well.
And what is really more pathetic is that we report a painting telling the most powerful tale about Palestine; the will, the beauty and the culture just because it shows a woman’s breasts. But we take no action towards such a porn video!
That is just ridiculous!!
