Advertisement by Ziad
A friend of mine created a website, 2emmak (Your Mother), to host the latest (is this the first?) ad starred by Ziad Rahbani. The advertisement is for Optimum, Health Insurance Plan. I tried to "borrow" the video and embed it in a blog post, but the task was too time consuming. Hence, I will just provide you the link.
Since the advertisement is in Arabic, I did a quick English translation for the non-Arabic speakers.
Man: [But] this is a humanitarian job.
Ziad: No brother, it is true.
Take for example the medical doctor, with all my respect to him, but what does he wish you? To stay like a tiger? No, he wants to work as well.
And the hospital... Does the hospital wish to stay open day and night and people are running around it like horses?
You see? So, if you put your mother aside, at the end of the day, it is only the insurance people who wish you every good and that no harm, whatsoever, touch you.
What can I do!? But this is the truth.
