Spirit of Dubai

This is the creepiest advert I have ever seen. "Spirit of Dubai" is narrated by a tortured pre-teen voice and features lots of ugly Sheikhs, white people with crooked smiles, camel racing, and an especially psychotic looking Arab guy at 0:43.

In the meantime Dubai Police is "encouraging" people to be happy.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- If you say you're unhappy in Dubai, the police may call to ask you why as part of a new survey.
The online poll, unveiled in recent days, comes as Dubai tries to break into the top 10 rankings of world's happiest cities by 2021, an effort in league with other lofty aspirations in this emirate, home to the world's tallest building.
This part of the world does know a thing or two about happiness though. Men are most ecstatic just before blowing themselves up to smithereens.
