An Egyptians audience may have a controversial reaction to the video based on their perceptions of America. Some will perceive it as a funny joke but others, probably the majority, will perceive the humor as offensive.
Most probably, an Egyptian audience will immediately consider the target of the humor in the video as the protesters and the Egyptian people. The reason for this kind of perception is simple; it is the idea deposited in their minds that America controls the whole world with its policies. Consequently, when they watch that reporter asking ridiculous questions to the protesters like “Where should America send the prisoners to make sure that they will get tortured properly?” it seems as though he is making of them.
Egyptians may take this as very offensive questions revealing the “real image” of America.
When an Egyptian audience watches the video their perceptions of how Americans think of themselves when compared to the rest of the world may lead them to believe that Egyptians are being insulted. The reporter’s annoying questions and his foolish facial expressions seem disrespectful of the protestors; however, the fact is that those stupid questions and those foolish expressions are funny and make him the real target of the joke.
Moreover, the people who felt offended by the video can be the same people who would laugh at it. To do this they would need to look at it from a different side. The reporter who seemed to insult them is really making fun of the conservative Americans who think this way.
