Saudi Man Celebrates Snowfall Performing a Penguin Slide

Snowfall isn't a common sight in Saudi Arabia. So when a few brave snowflakes dare fall upon the Saudi desert, the locals are typically quick to capture the event, and hotheads eager to experiment new stunts.

Among the latter, a young Saudi man from the governorate of Ha’il in the north of the kingdom attempted a hilarious slide, performed lying on his stomach, along a snow-covered sand dune last weekend.

The “Saudi Penguin”

The slide was filmed and naturally went viral on social media, leaving its performer with the elegant nickname of “The Saudi Penguin”.
