I’m In Love with the Zain Poster Boy


Very ZAIN. Not just a little zain, but very ZAIN.


I’ve nearly crashed my car a total of 3 times now because the Zain Poster Boy is looking longingly into my eyes. It’s not my fault. I have to slow down (and veer off in his direction) because he loves me. It is the look. I can tell! "I want you right here, right now, Desert Girl."

It isn’t just me – it is my girlfriends too.

He’s the guy with the dishtasha in the new Zain ads on all the street signs. Those advertising agencies should really be more careful about their content as the posters may distract drivers. This particular one has eyes that follow you wherever you go.

Anyhoo, I had a similar infatuation (although never this bad) with the Nivea Poster Boy and the Guy With The (F) Me Eyes who was running for political office during the last election. Don’t ask me what his name was or what he was running for because I’m an illiterate foreigner and I can’t read Arabic.

My girlfriends and I all agree, of course, that fantasy is much better than reality in most cases and that these guys probably have voices like pre-teen girls or that they are effeminate in other ways or that they are most likely just totally unacceptable, but hey….

THEY ARE FUN TO LOOK AT.



PS - I just checked out Zain's website and he's not there, but holy shit - Saad Barrak shaved his moustache!

I wonder if Zain is as Zain as he appears to be.. Don't let them fool ya... The camera is capable of magic.

I was wondering if you know who is the girl in the zai ads we see on the roads? any clue :)

Desert Girl said...

Admirer: I have no idea. If I meet the Zain Poster Boy, I will inquire.

I called 107 and asked the guy how I could meet him. Dude wasn't amused! LOL. I tried.

Zain.com has a link to contact their media department. I may try there next.

i think the zain girl is pretty cute too. i think theyre doing it on purpose; make us stare at them, crash in the street, and end up needing to use our cell phones, racking up the bills. dammit.

Ok, who's the hottie pictured on the top graphic (Zain website) that says "This is my choir"? I've seen him on their TV ads and in a magazine.
