Jordan’s popular culture is much influenced by Egyptian, Lebanese, Syrian, and, most recently, Turkish music and television series, which young Jordanians have been watching and listening to in the 21st century. Jordanians grew up watching Egyptian and Syrian soap operas and, because they are broadcast on satellite channels, Turkish soap operas have become very popular over the past three years.
Abu Mahjoob, a caricature character created by cartoonist Emad Hajjaj, has become very popular for depicting Jordanian’s lives in a satirical manner. Abu Mahjoob represents the average Jordanian citizen, with his or her daily struggles and aspirations.
Recently, T-shirts lettered with popular Jordanian slang have become a hit with young people.
