VIDEO: Jordanian parody of ‘Uptown Funk’ tackles unemployment issues

Singin' and swingin' about finding a job and how difficult that can be for Jordan's youth.

A rough translation of the song: A young man walking in the street with his suit, it is boiling hot weather and the car has failed in the middle of the road. And so he sings about asking his friends to push it ahead, then begging he wants to work because he is burdened with debts and loans. Our singer has been unemployed for 4 years, no work at all. 

That’s Uptown Funk, Jordan-style.
