A request to translate Hamood Habibi to English was posted on /r/translator, receiving this response from Reddit user invisibowl:

"This has popped up here before. Comment from /u/tinkertoon a couple months ago covers it:
It's the silliest thing ever. Just the kid calling on Hamoud (which, along with Hamadi, is a nickname for Ahmad or Mohammad). He uses the word "habibi", which is a term of endearment in Arabic, used between friends or romantic couples. Here you go:
Hamoud (x3)
Hamoud dear Hamoud, Hamoud dear (x2)
Hamoud (x2)
Wake up
Wake up! (x2)
Oh Ahmad Hamadi (x2)
Repeated ad nauseam.

When asked about the text in the bottom left corner of the screen, invisibowl responded:

"Didn't notice it before, it's a watermark. 'Cartoon animations – Muhammad Ghaloum'"

The title of the video is usually similar to "Hamood Habibi" or "Hamood Habibi Wake Up" when uploaded to YouTube.


The video has retained a general level of popularity on some areas of the Arabic internet. It began to rise in popularity when popular YouTuber Pyrocynical posted a tweet comparing the character seen in the Hamood Habibi video to the character Sheen from Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius and Planet Sheen on July 11th, 2017:
