To say that Abdullah ibn Al-Hussein comes from a prestigious family would be one heck of an understatement. The current ruler of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Abdullah II comes from the house of Hashem that claims its descendency from Mohammed himself. His ancestors have sat on the thrones of Transjordan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and parts of Saudi Arabia. The bottom line is that, whatever "it" is, Abdullah has people to do it for him.

Yet when unprecedented amounts of snow fell on the Middle East these past few days, Abdullah apparently didn't hesitate to roll up the sleeves of his thawb and help push at least this one car out of the snow. Our guess is that his motorcade couldn't pass a bottomed-out car on the street, so when members of his entourage jumped out to help, so did he.

In any event, the video below is reportedly spreading like snow-melting wildfire across the Middle East. As well it should. After all, how many kings are there left in the world, and how often do you see one pushing a car out of the snow?
