Want to drive in Lebanon? I have the perfect car for you!

This is a very funny Lebanese ad that sarcastically describes the road situation in Lebanon:

There won’t be any street lights at night but don’t worry, saint Rita will light the road for you!

Just drive on the highway, don’t worry about the pot holes and what not, saint George will protect you!

Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚
