The number of Saudi teens posting videos of illegal stunts in cars, joyriding, bullying and political dissent on YouTube is growing.
Due to Islamic prohibitions, Saudi boys cannot go to cinemas, mix with unrelated women or even enter some shopping malls. As a result of their restricted boredom, they take to racing in the streets in Porsches and a BMWs, trying some crazy stunts.
The video posted here, "Only in Saudi Arabia," shows two Saudi teenagers hanging from the doors of a moving car. The clip received 379,000 hits in a year!
Some other postings include political material as a new generation of Saudis try to gain independence under a restrictive system.
