Before seeing the number of Muslims represented within the countries they are mainly in, I believed that the majority of the world's Muslim population was in the Middle East and Northern Africa. I never thought of it being such a spreadout Religion, but because the portion of the Muslim population that is usually discussed in the media is from the Middle East, it is not hard to see why many believe that is where they are from.

This article was good to look at because the majority of people assume Muslims are only in the Middle East. There are 1.6 billion Muslims around the world. Two-thirds of the Muslim population live in the Asia-Pacific region than in the middle east. More Muslims actually live in India and Pakistan. Muslims make up the majority of the population in 49 countries around the world. Islam has become the world's second largest religious tradition after Christianity. I would love to know some reasons behind why certain Muslims live in other areas.

As a cultural production this is fascinating reshaping of the original Chrysler Super Bowl commercial.  The original doubles as a tribute to a rural America of yesteryear and American labor.  This one acts as a critique on the status on Latino workers in the United States.  The audio is the same, with images that conjure out entirely different messages (here is an irreverent parody).
