Nothing says Vin Diesel like Ed Hardy
Recently I decided to conduct a mean little exercise in character development.
I surveyed a cross-section of Gulfies asking them to respond Rorschach-style to the below images and to answer a few prompts ala a Proust-questionnaire about their hypothetical owner.
I particularly targeted those subjects who I knew to be rhinestone intolerant and sensitive to Axe-allergens.
Q. Where does this guy live? What’s his name? How old is he?
In his bedroom, not much there but a big screen trv and sound system. Big shower gel and cologne collection.
He lives in government housing. Aboudy. 17
She is a teen khalleji muhajadyke. Don’t know her name, but could be an ambiguous one ( those names that can apply to women, men or single cell asexual creatures, or an escargot).
Emirati, Hmoud or Soo Soo as his childhood friends used to call him. He’s 20.
Q. Has he ever been in love?
his greatest love is and always has been himself. although he frequently falls inlove with the good looks of some girls who fit the bill, arm candy, an extention of his own image
