Diary of a bad man


waa gwan bruv?  

This guy is a bit of a youtube sensation.  Very funny desi humour and a nice moral to each story. Gotta watch it till the end.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!! I have to agree, that was some hilariously funny stuff!!!!

Have to admit, makes me feel guilty though! Yup, every time I hear that hadith - BABA feels bad.

I watched all of them including the bloopers!! The best one is the Eid one... when he started dancing I was gonna cry... so hysterical... the guy is a comedic genius and he's roped in some good characters. I'm glad he has a little "moral" in the videos but I think it should just be taken as what it is desi (muslim) comedy gold  Grin

rahmaa haha i think ppl will either find them hysterically funny or not at all.  it's really over the top desi comedy.

also have to know a lot of british slang and in-jokes... ie "blud" "bledrens" =dudes  "safe"=cool "boom"=awesome "wahgwan/wag1"= wassup  "buff"= good looking "butters" = ugly "079 me"= call me and a little urdu/hindi/punjabi.

eid one is close to 2 million views!!

se7en the thing with putting some type of "islamic message" is that ppl will object to every single thing in the video (ie why is there music, why are there girls, why is the mum beating the kid, why iphones/blackberries/gangster culture and expensive cars etc etc) and most muslims don't have a sense of humor (u know it's true).  and they'll ask why there wasn't quran verses and shaikhs and etc etc and declare it haram and what not.  so i think it's really good he stuck to desi comedy and general good messages to the kids and didn't make it "overly islamic". stuff like this IS dawah but ppl won't see it as such because of all those other things. also it helps create a shared 'british muslim desi culture', even living in amreeka there was so much we could relate to.

I think this discussion deserves a thread of it's own... and here's an interview with the bad man himself:

Thanks for the interview Sis J. I don't know if anyone else thought about this, but after seeing the interview, it did remind of me of Baba Ali's story and how he started out simple, started getting views and then built of up his popularity and of course, as we knew, moved into other areas of media. I think there comedy is different and of course, delivered in a different medium, style, but I think they each have their own unique style.

YES, the E'id one was definitely the best. I am all caught with the episodes now! Good lessons though for sure!

Pretty intense stuff at times, but of course, very hilarious! I actually didn't know a lot of that Brit slang that you listed Sis J, but some in general familiar environment and what not, given I've spent time in England over the years with family, etc.


Should be interesting to see what Ep. 5 holds for us!

Salams,

Watched it!!! Thought it was good, but didn't have that quite biting sharp humor the others did. I think it's perhaps the editing/sound wasn't quite as good, voice seemed really low and editing seemed jerky and a little off. And he didn't use as much crazy british slang that was fun. But still silly and very enjoyable Smiley I think they should avoid being overly Islamic, I know crazy right...but having an Islamic message in one place at like the right time makes more of a difference!

Hey, came across this recently - some Brit Desi's that went to the Bride Show at Wembley, along with Bad Man, the Dentist from the videos and others. So kinda get to see what he's like - as you can imagine, the ladies are crazy about him.

Here's the channel of the guy who does the videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/terrymardi
Just click on the videos entitled: Wideo Diary of A Bad Man.

That was really cute. I love those guys!! They should really try to make a movement out of this. Like anti-gang message/posiitve-life message and go around to schools in the UK and things. Adorable kids in the end! But do parents really let their 6 year olds watch this!!  Shocked

well, the kid that introduced me to the DOABM videos was 10 yrs old so I'm thinking, yeah, a 6 yr old would probably have seen it! 

Seriously, the videos have tapped into a very young demographic.  It's got a kind of 'talk of the playground' buzz to it.

The newest episode was just released, but seems like we are not interested in them anymore - as I seem to recall people not approving/he wasn't going in the right direction, which I can understand . . anyways, Ep. 9 is now out.
