We’ve all been there stuck in a traffic jam while a VIP protocol races past or shoved aside at a festival when a politician’s entourage pushes its way through the crowd.
Recent events like the death of a child outside Civil Hospital in Karachi while Bilawal Bhutto was inaugurating an adjoining trauma center have pushed people to protest against what they see is a blatant abuse of power.
Of course, you can shed light on the abuse of VIP protocols by staging a sit-in… or you can be like comedian Danish Ali and make a satirical video that mocks ‘VIPs’ and is totally hilarious to boot.
Watch the video:
In the video Danish makes as aware of an amazing product, the ‘VIP Helmet’ — which, when worn, will confer upon you all the privileges of being a VIP in Pakistan. With its flashing lights and a siren that goes ‘woo, woo’ this helmet makes sure you’ll be treated like the don you are.
According to Danish, this helmet is for you if a) you’ve been passed over for a promotion because your chacha is not a minister b) you have a double masters but you still get less respect than a VIP uncle’s son
According to Danish, this helmet is for you if a) you’ve been passed over for a promotion because your chacha is not a minister b) you’ve been stuck in traffic due to a VIP protocol and ‘aap ko bathroom bhi aa raha hai’ c) you’re regularly harassed by the police d) you have a double masters but you still get less respect than a VIP uncle’s son.
Among other things, this ingenious helmet will help you commit bank fraud with ease and cut lines wherever you go. Better yet, it also shields your loved ones, allowing your significant other to harangue poor shopkeepers and your child to play with other VIP offspring.
Using satire, Danish Ali makes sure to drive the point home: that VIP culture is a pest that’s better left in the past. In fact, this might be his best work yet.
