Love Story


True love lasts as long as the electricity does...

then it's back to washing by hand and using your imagination.

200% Lebanese

Add 30+ school kids in matching uniforms, each facing in opposite directions. leave the sliding door open as you buzz through narrow side streets, make sure the driver is chain smoking, add some dings and dents and please paint this classic beauty that funky blue color and THEN you'll be 200% Lebanese! (No Bumper? No Hubcaps? Add 25%!!)

We don't have crocodiles, although we do have some cold-blooded varmints on the loose in Beirut.

Really Not New

Thanks for the definition but this one we know...

Have you seen the cars coming into Port Beirut? Think Demolition Derby, only to later appear in the finest car lots. You can fix(ok, refurbish) anything in Lebanon. Perhaps you've heard of Bourj Hammoud or the Annual Rebuild Lebanon Conference at BIEL. Rumor has it even Beirut was destroyed and rebuilt 7 times. Yeah, we get it, really nothing new.

Arabic and Lebanese Translation

Arabic = "You fill it up" & " The first self-service station in Lebanon- Halat Autostrade."
Lebanese- 1.Time to teach your maid to pump gas and get her to clean/smear the windshield too.
2. The fantasy is the cool guy in the convertible pumping his gas, the reality is the service driver pumping 5000LL. 3.Thanks for telling us where this is so we aren't seen there, ever.

Hot and Cold

Are you conflicted? Can't decide if it's winter or summer? You could get sick letting your stomach get cold, or so they say.

What's next? The "Dubai is Cool" Campaign?
