YouTube video of the day: Livin' it like a desi

Published: June 24, 2012

Ever experienced lining up outside the washroom, while it was invaded by your sibling? Or surfing through TV channels with your parents and coming across something vulgar that made you feel awkward? Welcome to the world of Pakistani families – dominated by sibling rivalries and frequent parental scolds.

“That Awkward Family Moments” is a video that every Pakistani can relate to – one way or the other.

In one scene, the father asks his son to list down the friends he was planning to go with. After naming five male friends he takes a female friend’s name and is met with refusal.

In another scene, the two brothers are seen watching TV with dilated pupils and eyeing the door to see if anyone is coming. Finally one of them shouts, “Pogo laga, pogo laga!” (Switch to Pogo!)

The video is sure to tickle a desi’s funny bone.

Video rating: Two thumbs for depicting desiness accurately.
