A parody of a Bob Marley song used to mock Saudi Arabia's ban
on women driving has gone viral, receiving millions of views
in just a few days.
The YouTube clip, featuring comedian Hisham Fageeh (26),
recasts Marley's hit 'No Woman No Cry' as 'No Woman No Drive'
and supports the campaign of Saudi women defying their
country's ban, BBC reports.
In the video, Fageeh sarcastically tells women not to
consider getting behind the wheel.
He whistles and dances and sings lyrics that include "I
remember when you used to sit in the family car but
backseat... in this bright future you can't forget your past,
so put your car key away".
Fageeh says the inspiration for the song came to him ''either
in the shower or in the toilet''.
Though no specific law bans women from driving in the
country, women are not issued licences.
Powerful clerics enforce the ban on women drivers, warning
that breaking it will spread "licentiousness".
The video was posted on Friday and has since drawn more than
4 million views.
