Egyptian series, Weld El-Ghalaba (Son of the Poor) did more than just draw some inspiration from the American drama series. Its writers and producers basically did a "scene by scene" copy of the show and followed quite a similar plot line with Egyptian actor Ahmed El Sakka.
The series was broadcast on pan-Arab channel MBC during the month of Ramadan ... and the mockery has been well-present all throughout. But, towards the end of May, the scrutiny heightened and it seems to be the topic of conversation on Twitter recently.
*Say My Name*
A look at some of the "duplicated" scenes
Scene #1: Cash on the table
Scene #2: Nose injury
Scene #3: Meeting with "Saul"
Scene #4: Saul's facial expressions
The jokes are pouring in
"Even the nose wound is the same, subhanallah"
"Better Call Leba?"
Coincidence? I think not
"Breaking Bad Series: Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher gets involved in drug trafficking after he's diagnosed with lung cancer - to secure his family's future finances. Sure, it's a coincidence that the Egyptian series has the exact same plot."
