Hi everyone, we know there's been a sad tone on our channel this week but rest assured... On Tuesday we're back with sneaking in, wheel of discomfort and adventures with strangers... It's going to be NUTS! We just had to get these two stories out.
This situation with Ammar in Egypt is very complicated, we hope you understand the situation and appreciate TD's amazing piece at the end. Some of you might not agree with Ammar's decision to stay in the U.S. but at the end of the of day, it's his and his only. Having this emotional weight over our shoulders while traveling in Egypt did make it harder to focus on videos sometimes but it was a trip that was necessary for us all.
The Super 8-effect and music choice was completely inspired by Adrian Bliss and his amazing piece:

Who are we?
Yes Theory are four friends from four different countries who constantly seek discomfort in order to grow. Ammar, Thomas, Matt and Derin met in Montreal, Canada in the summer of 2015 and bonded over their shared desire to live a life that challenged and excited them. Fast forward to a year later, the team is now based out of Los Angeles, making a show on Snapchat Discover.

such an important message
Apply for American citizenship. If you give up your Egyptian passport, you don’t have to serve military. My friend is basically going through the same thing. He has American-Taiwan dual passport. He is going to give up his Taiwan passport in order to not serve military
What I don’t understand is why his family can’t come to visit him in the US as tourists from time to time?

Bos ya Ammar ana ma2darsh akteb 3arabi fos7a fa hatkalem keda. Kol sre7aby for Masr fahmeen kol el enta bet7awel te2ooloh fa fel akher, follow your dreams and don’t let anyone stop it for you... even if it makes you suffer from consequences, I understand everything cuz i want to be an actor when I grow up, and I don’t really think some people will as accept me as the Muslim Egyptian become famous. Just remember to keep up the good work and never stop saying yes! ربنا معاك! Matensash... everyone is supporting you!

At my school , we have 40 min each Saturday that is used to show videos and inspiration things. So one of my friends showed us one of your videos which is what would you do if it was your last 24hr and after we watched it and most of the class thought that "Wow they are living a great life full of adventure and all" but then my group of friends got up and said that there life isn't as fun as we see it and each one of them have there own problems they just manage to take the best in everything and that Ammar for example can't go bach to his home (Egypt which is my home too) But he always says that yes theory is his family . That really touched so anyways after the 40min passed we got out and all of us said seek discomfort and we thanked God for what we have.

I live in Egypt and currently can't go back to my home country, Turkey, for political reasons and don't know if I ever will. Maybe it's inconsiderate to say but i wish I had years I could count.

As an international student in the US. I sort of understand what you’re going through. I left my homeland when I was 18 years old.It is really hard to be far from you loved ones your family but we all have to find our path in this journey called life. I think you have found yours so fight for you dreams and everything will pay off at the end. Good luck Ammar.

As someone who had also left their messed up country in order to make themselves better, more educated, more aware, more successful and more capable in order to help themselves, their family and essentially community: there is nothing more painful, amazing, brave, awful, fulfilling, disappointing than that. It's so hard and sad that you need to do that, it makes you so angry with everything and everyone, but just having your goals set straight and your motives stay clean and pure helps you get through it all. Knowing that people could depend on you is scary but it pushes you to do your absolute best to do what you came to do. Not seeing your friends and family for such a period of time sucks a 100% at the given moment but knowing that you're helping their future is so rewarding and worth every homesickness, every crying -yourself- to- sleep night and every sleepless night since you have to work 110% harder because you're the stranger in the country. Ammar, there is no better feeling in this world when you go back, help everyone and prove them that your decision was the right one. I know that moment can seem so far, far away but when it does come, it'll be the best thing that has ever happened to you, trust me.

I 1million % agree with your decision to not draft into your country's military, how you choose to serve your country is your choice, in my opinion. Im currently serving in the US army and i love it, but i know its not for everyone and i know that there are better places for certain people to be than in the military. Keep living your wonderful life and keep spreading your beautiful message.
