After recording their hilarious reactions to Taher Shah's Angel, the US Consulate General Karachi has left us in fits once again with this video of its American staff learning a traditional Pakhtun dance.

Their Facebook post reads, "Washmallay! We just love Pashto dance. After a rigorous practice session, we managed to master a few moves. Check us out!"

While we commend their efforts to learn more about Pakistani culture, it seems that the embassy forgot that Pashto is in fact a language, and not a dance.

Regardless, some of them showed their love for Pakistan by donning a green and white shalwar kameez.

Others took it a step further and dressed in a traditional Pashto outfit (topi included).

They definitely struggled to get the dance moves down.

"He [the instructor] chose a classical dance. I chose to do a little bit of a free spin on that one."

"Okay, now he's getting way too complicated."

They also had some apt observations to share:

"I feel like a ninja."

"Jab app kartay hain toh bohot acha lagta hai. Jab mein karti hoon toh acha nahi."
