But it could get you arrested! SCREENGRAB

An Arab-American stand-up comedian, Remy Munasifi, broke the internet in 2010 with his parody song Saudis in Audis, and now a bunch of Saudi boys have followed suit.

In a video that has gone viral in the Arab world, a group of Saudi hipsters can be seen displaying some ridiculously addictive moves that would force you to shake your leg too.

The song titled Barbs is a fun mix of hip hop with 80s break dance and Arabic beats. It is currently topping charts in the Middle East.

The dance translates to “untidy” or “messy” in a Saudi dialect. The idea was conceived by Majed al-Esa, an artist and director, who is known for Saudi and western culture fusions, reports The Washington Post.

Freedom of expression is a sensitive issue in the Arab world however, where many youngsters are being reprimanded for uploading their parody videos on the internet.

Two residents of Abu Dhabi got into trouble when they danced their hearts out in military uniforms and posted a video on social media.

The Abu Dhabi government arrested them and took them to court, where they were charged for disrespecting the military uniform and the national army.

Critics have condemned the video and urged for a boycott. They have also requested to arrest those who perform these “indecent” moves.

But they definitely have us moving and grooving!
