Royal Comedians

Queen Rania of Jordan Spoofs Letterman on YouTube Live

— November 24, 2008 — Pop Culture
Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan showed the comedian in her by spoofing David Letterman’s Top 10 while accepting the first ever YouTube Visionary Award at the YouTube Live event.

Trend Hunter reported on her Majesty’s YouTube channel back in April. Queen Rania has since posted tens of YouTube videos where she addresses many questions posted by YouTubers and tries to correct misconceptions about Arabs and Muslims in a bid to bring people in the Middle East and west closer together and bridge the 'East-West divide.'

In the funny clip, Queen Rania counts down the Top 10 reason she started her YouTube channels, which include, "Because I didn’t have enough friends on Facebook," "Because anything Queen Elizabeth can do, I can do better," "Because I was tired of people thinking Jordan was just a basketball player," and "Because if Madonna can get millions of hits cleaning the floor..."

I say, bravo Queen Rania, especially when you see that her videos leave the comment option open without filtering them out. If politicians want change to come, they have to embrace the young generation and speak to them in their language and using their platform.
