YouTube video of the day: The tragedy of being a ‘Pakistani boy’

With a tragic background score, Pakistani 'boys' list their problems with long faces and droopy eyes.

Women shed tears while men brave it out, right? Well, Pakistani men can’t. Misogynists might disagree, but a video titled “Pakistani Boy Problems” proves it.

With a tragic background score, the monochromatic video made by HRC Studios features Pakistani “boys” who list down everyday problems with long faces and droopy eyes.

One of them says, “Girlfriend ko bike pe lejaraha tha, spead breaker nae aaya” (I was taking girlfriend on a bike, but no speed breakers came on the way).

Another one says, “Chat pe larrki number de rahi thi, light chali gayi” (The electricity went out when a girl was about to give me her contact details on chat).

Even though the video has not been filmed properly and the quality is low, it does not stop one from laughing, thanks to the rib-tickling jokes.

Video rating: Two thumbs up for indirectly filming a feel-good video for girls.
