In its latest video, YouTube channel FOMO Daily, six Americans sat down to judge two Pakistani actors, Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi.
In a three-round session, they were asked to tell who is ‘for the win’ based on what they were given to watch and judge.
Round 1: Twitter Accounts
The first round had them looking at the two actors’ twitter accounts.
The viewers took the dim view of Fawad’s cover photo, calling it a “Picture that could’ve been taken in the 80s.”
“I think he is ridiculously handsome,” said one of the viewers.
Though, the viewers found Fawad to be resembling a “young, good looking George Clooney”, his account looked too ‘business oriented’ and didn’t seem much interesting.
Hamza Ali Abbasi’s account, on the other hand was very active with political statements, but it lacked photos.
They appreciated the actor taking a political stance, anyway. “He is taking political stands which i appreciate.”
“On the one hand, it is awesome that he is using his platform and on the other hand, it’s like a lot,” one viewer said.
Score: Fawad – 1, Hamza – 5
Round 2: Commercials
In the 2nd round, the participants were supposed to watch the actors’ ads and pass their remarks.
The viewers found Fawad’s Aquafina ad to be unimpressive while the Talk Shawk ad was stereotypical.
“It’s so annoying playing into the stereotypes.”
On the other hand, Hamza Ali Abbasi won them over with his Cake Rusk ad.
“These are exactly the kind of people I want to hang out with at a party.”
And his Mc Donald’s ad was “mind exploding”. It overdid the jewelry and decoration which simply doesn’t befit with the product.
Score: Fawad – 0, Hamza – 6
Round 3: Movie trailers
In the 3rd and last round, movie trailers were shown to the participants and Fawad Khan finally got some appreciation for his Kapoor and Sons. “Khan came a long way from those commercials,” quipped one viewer.
“I like this, I like family high-jinks,” remarked one of the viewers.
While Hamza Ali Abbasi’s Jawani Phir Nahi Ani exaggerated everything and was too ‘slapstick’ and sexist for the women.
Fawad – 5, Hamza – 1
Verdict: Hamza Ali Abbasi patently won!!
