The two Iranian girls who crashed while recording a music video as they drove have sparked a spate of copycat videos making fun of their stupidity. The video of the two attractive young women, one blonde and one dark-haired, shows them driving with no hands on the steering wheel. The driver is making a heart with her hands while her blond pal grins into the camera, both not watching the road as they dance to the song "Ghorboni" by Saeed Shayesteh, an Iranian pop singer. A second later, they crash, and an airbag can be seen activating over the camera before the film ends. The two girls, however, survived, and after enquiries from all over the world have uploaded a selfie from their hospital beds, where they now rest together, to show they are fine. The girls posted the photographs thinking the world wanted to know they were safe, when in fact most people had only shared the video because they were amazed at their foolishness. Many internet users have created spoof copies of the stunt, like this one posted a day later that shows two man faking a crash under the same circumstances, and then posting the same hospital style "selfie". It is not clear where exactly the girls were when they crashed but Iranian media widely reported the incident and said that both girls were doing well as they recovered from their accident.
