Egypt: how to "kill" the tourism in 40 seconds
 Part of channel(s): 2011 Egyptian revolution (current event)

If you plan to visit Egypt in the coming days, a little advice: do not pronounce the word "really" (really), especially in its interrogative form. Use this word in the land of pyramids can either make you ridicule, or cost you a stay at the police station for questioning, according to the audience before which you express yourself ... No kidding!

The 40-second video shows a young man trying to make contact with young Egyptians
into a cafe. Warmly welcomed, he listens to their conversation carefully.

"He will enter your hearts as if you knew a long time," says the voiceover backdrop of dramatic music.
"I heard on the underground plotting against the army,"
"It was a crisis in transportation, prices soar,"
say the young Egyptians in the spot.
So many "important information he gets free,"
says the voiceover. "Really? "(Really?),
Reacts abroad, before pound on the keyboard of his mobile phone.
"Weigh your words. Every word has its price. A word can save a nation.

"End of video.



It all started last Thursday with the broadcast on Egyptian state
television of an advertisement (see below) calling on Egyptians not to
become familiar with foreign spies portrayed as hungry for information.
