#BBCtrending: The 'Uptown Funk' unemployment parody

28 July 2015 Last updated at 00:16 BST

A parody of Mark Ronson's hit song "Uptown Funk" has become a YouTube hit in Jordan.

The sharply produced music video satirizes the struggle of finding jobs - despite high education rates, a third of young Jordanians are unemployed.

In 2011, thousands of young people took to the streets to protest a lack of job opportunities and rising cost of living. And in a country with few natural resources and heavy reliance on foreign assistance, an increasing number of refugees from Syria and other countries in the region is piling pressure on the economy.

BBC Trending spoke with the Jordanian comedy group 'Fooq alsada' about their video.
