And I have no problem with this.

"Participants in this challenge get out of a moving car and leave the door open and dance on a public road next to the car, which is a danger to them and others on the road," it said in a statement on Monday.

This I have no problem with! I hope that the cops take in any idiots that would do this on a public road anywhere in the world.

This behaviour is contrary to the values of the Emirates' society and constitutes a violation of public morals."

This however has nothing to do with the matter, and while there are some major cultural differences no doubt, it would have been nice if they had stopped at the previous paragraph and said no more!

I don't know nderstand why you have a problem with the UAE monarchy stipulating what is and isn't acceptable public morality. Seems like the smart thing to do with idiots who entertain the idea of copying this behavior.

Bad music. Silly dancing. Idiotic people. 7th century morality. Vacuous story.

Sounds like it’s time to remake Footloose.

My girl MIA does the baddest video ever - "Bad Girls" - which really gets in the face of the patriarchy. Great car stunts included.

Guess I can cherry pick too! Getting out of a moving car, on a public road, endangering their own lives and others possibly as well. I agree, arrest the lot. Idiots if you ask me.

FizzBit Thanks for the link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F4iJA1uS9Fw

Really idiotic video, especially 3 and a half minutes in when the driver gets out of the moving car and when he closes the door locks himself out and knocks on the window... and after that a girl driving a faster moving car gets out and immediately falls to the ground - there's no way she didn't get hurt.

@Toasted

There's absolutely othing wrong with stuff like this in music videos, it's when idiots try to copy it for YouTube fame it becomes a problem. Anyone who thinks walking outside their moving car deserves a visit from law enforcement.

@ Yubaru

But why would they stop where you want them to? I think the Emiratis know better than anybody else in the planet what violates their moral values. I'd respect that.
