Video: Amr Adib Literally Goes Nuts Over the Egyptian Pound

Talk show host, Amr Adib went nuts over the 'historic' gains recently made by the Egyptian pound over the US dollar and tells Egyptians that buying less imported nuts could bring the value down to 14 EGP per dollar.

On his talk show, Kol Youm, infamous media man and perpetual provocateur, Amr Adib literally goes NUTS (pun intended) over the EGP hitting 16 versus the US dollar.

In his usual loud voice, Adib expresses his astonishment at the EGP’s appreciation, over selling the slight rise as a "historic moment."

After that, the show steers into very strange waters, when Adib puts the rise or fall of the pound entirely on the population's shoulders, claiming that during Ramadan people should buy less imported nuts and that this one change alone could bring the dollar’s value down to 14 EGP.

He pointedly urges that we stop buying Chinese-made lanterns for Ramadan to help the local economy. Lots to think about. Can the nut and lantern industries single-handedly affect this much of a change to our economy? We don't know but it seems like a bit of an overstatement.

Buy-local sentiments are definitely something we can get behind but Adib leaves us reeling in wonder, yet again, at the inner-workings of his brain.
