Actor Karim Metwaly, notably from the AreWeFamousNow YouTube channel, changed his look to be more ambiguous to try and get more honest answers from people on what they thought about Islam and Muslims in general.

“You’ll be surprised to hear what these New Yorkers think of Islam,” he wrote. “It shows the media won’t change the minds of the people. It will truly make you smile. Please share and let’s bring peace to this generation.”

The video has gained more than 80,000 hits on YouTube and it has got over 3000 ‘Likes’ and ‘Shares’ on social networking site Facebook.
