A video tweeted by Pakistan Tourism, an account that has almost 5,00,000 followers has gone viral all over the platform and the Internet is rightly furious at its contents.

The clip, which has been viewed more than 6,68,000 times, is being called out for its poor attempt at displaying Pakistan tourism while promoting stereotypes and sexism. The account also tweets, “Tourist way to get revenge on wife,” along with the clip.

The man in the clip attempts a supposedly “funny” revenge on his wife which can be considered in bad taste. The video begins with the man and the woman riding a cable car. As the video plays, the man tries to open the safety belt in an attempt to scare the woman while also threatening to throw her down if she does not stop badgering him. The woman can be observed as visibly scared and asks the man to forgive her which she follows by touching his feet. All this while, the man is recording the video.

The reaction to the video on Twitter was mixed with most of the replies pointing out the bad taste and normalisation of abuse between couples. Some of the Twitterati replied that the video was an attempt at humour and did not deserve any hate or attention.

Rabiya Javeri Agha, the Chairperson for the National Commission for Human Rights in Pakistan also replied to the tweeted video saying, “These adverts are in incredibly bad taste & promote & create acceptance for a culture of abuse & violence amongst couples...they have nothing to do with tourism whatsoever.”

Here are some of the reactions:
