Rokas Aleliunas “Hip guy poster” - Twitter
CAIRO - 6 September 2019: Samir Ghanem’s hashtag on Twitter ranked third in the list of most active Egyptian trends on Twitter on Sept. 5.
This happened due to the similarity between Ghanem’s appearance and a design published on August 28 by international designer Rokas Aleliunas on dribbble, a global platform where designers around the world share their work of art.
Rokas Aleliunas called the design "casual hipster, cool mustache". The design resembles Egyptian veteran comedian Samir Ghanem. Some Egyptians commented comically on the picture, saying: "Here, we call him Samir Ghanem."
The comments ripped through the hashtag, where tweets approached 3,000 a day. Most users agreed in their tweets that the picture is for Ghanem.
Aleliunas responded to a comment that said that the man in his drawing was similar to Egyptian actor Samir Ghanem, saying: "I think every country has a famous hip guy similar to the one in the poster."
