Recently 14 year-old-boy was arrested after his video of dancing on the road went viral on social media.
A young boy wearing gray shorts and striped t-shirt paired with colored shoes was filmed dancing on the road. He was dancing on a song that was once a great hit of 1990, “Macarena.” The boy, whose name and nationality is not disclosed, was filmed dancing on a crosswalk.
In the video he is seen to have waited for the traffic signal to go red and went to the middle of the cross walk in front of lanes of cars and started to dance on a vibrant music. His 45-second act was filmed and went viral on social media.
Saudi Arabia, among the Gulf countries, sees an active community on social media. The video became subject to so much debate so that authorities had to take action on it.
The boy was later tracked down to the coastal city of Jeddah and was held by the police. However, the police released him after few hours after giving him a warning that this is not a good practice to dance on the road. He should respect rules and regulations in Saudi Arabia.
After news that he was arrested spread it again became a social media storm where people criticized him.
It’s funny that a kid dancing on the road is an offence in Saudi Arabia. Really feel for the kid. He was just having fun.
