Get ready to shimmy along to a video which has been widely circulated by Arabs online in recent days: a TV presenter in Lebanon dancing to a widely popular song about Egypt’s presidential elections.
The song, sung by Emirati singer Hussain al-Jasmi, is named Boshret Kheir (A Good Omen) and encourages Egyptians to vote in the presidential elections.
Since the song's release earlier this month, many have released parody videos on YouTube, where they can be seen going about their daily business in the first slow part of the song, then exploding into dance when the rhythm quickens.
The presenter at AlAan TV transforms from a straight face to using his microphone to dance while seated at the news desk. It is not clear whether it was a live broadcast or merely recorded and uploaded for entertainment purposes.
