Tomi Omran Nude Cover = Epicness Level INFINITY

Today, the Internet became even more amusing when I stumbled across the curious case of Saudi “artist” (pronounced “arteeeest”) Tomy Omran.

The headline caught my eye: “Picture of Saudi Artist Tomy Omran Practically Naked on Greek Magazine Cover”.

What? Saudi? Naked? GREEK?

You see the amusement factor.

Yet, when I click on the link, poor Tomy isn’t naked at all. He’s barely topless, with a weird mini-jacket thing.

I started skimming through the article, where I came upon this quote from our friend Tomy: “The magazine convinced me by offering me 100 thousand Euros. They told me that the picture is great and that it will make Greek customers buy the issue.”

ONE-HUNDRED THOUSAND EUROS? IN BANKRUPT GREECE? FOR A MAGAZINE CALLED DOWNTOWN?

That’s when I started googling and came upon the actual cover (below), where our friend Tomy really is “practically naked” (surprise! surprise!). You can click on it to enlarge.

Interesting. Right?

So I started googling Tomy some more, out of curiosity. Some pictures of Tomy from around the web:

Although I really am not experimental with music and art, how can I resist googling what sort of “arteest” Tomy is? Well, I couldn’t.

So I started YouTubing dear Tomy, and found this:

OHMYGOD. MY BRAIN IS ABOUT TO DIE FROM AMUSEMENT.

Wait. It gets better.

After seeing that, aren’t you also curious to hear Tomy speak in a Saudi accent? I was. Lo and behold:

Egyptian!

So fascinating.

The final bit of OHMYGODMYBRAINCANTTAKETHISANYMORE was found in a forum for Arab “liberals” called the “Arab Liberals Network”. Let’s see what these liberal Arabs have to say about our friend Tomy:



So
liberal.

    I found his youtube channel. It’s full of epic as a noun.

  2. Never thought I’d ever see ‘كلنا لله’ and ‘Orgasm sound devotion’ in the same channel.

  4. HAHAHAHAHA he really does!

    Tomy Omran is a free man and a great Artist with so much talent.

  6. Salam 3aLeykom …

    Ultimately weird & very suspicious when he speaks & sings about Islams Allah.

    I’m straight but know gay people, and here in the heart of the Muslim World, they would never even utter 1 word regarding matters of religion because they consiously know that they have chosen to seperate from Islam in favoure of their gayness.

    I mean, it’s obvious that there is a financing hand @ play here. The verbal & written attacks are 100% called for, and Tomy’s getting paid to endure the whole sharade!
