7 key moments from Taher Shah's Angel that you may have missed

7 key moments from Taher Shah's Angel that you may have missed

Did you know he's wearing Louis Vuitton? And what's with the wand?
Updated 09 Apr, 2016

Taher Shah of 'Eye to Eye' fame is back with a new track, and it's called 'Angel.'

A couple of days ago Shah had announced that he'd be releasing a song and had posted a promo picture — of himself wearing a set of angel wings — on his website. He even tweeted about it.

Today he made good on his promise.

Watch the video here:

The track has quickly gone viral and captured the er, imaginations of many — right now its the top trend on twitter. In it, Taher is dressed as an angel, driving home the point that he is "mankind's angel."

The song is five minutes long and we won't fault you if you couldn't make it through the whole thing.

In fact, we'll make it easy for you by breaking down exactly what you need to know about 'Angel'... here are 5 key moments you may have missed.

1) Taher Shah's got some serious swag

Close examination of the video yields this information: Taher Shah likes his loafers with a side of Louis Vuitton. Yep, the luxury brand's iconic logo is visible on his shoes.

Squint hard enough, and you'll see
Squint hard enough, and you'll see

And that isn't the end of it, at a later point in the video he wears a gold locket in the shape of an 'E.' Or is it a 'T'? Or both?

Is the locket an 'E'ye 'T'o 'E'ye reference?
Is the locket an 'E'ye 'T'o 'E'ye reference?

2) Taher Shah's lady angel actually wears two different angel costumes

Note the difference in style
Note the difference in style

If you missed her costume change you weren't paying attention! Tsk tsk. Which one do you like better? We're feeling the flouncy one.

3) Angels have chest hair too

In case you missed it!
In case you missed it!

You're welcome.

4) Taher Shah appears to have confused angels with fairies as he and his angel family carry wands

Confusing.

5) Even baby angels aren't always angelic — Taher Shah's tot looks like he's about to throw a tantrum

This baby isn't a bit happy
This baby isn't a bit happy
Daddy Angel is about to get booped on the nose
Daddy Angel is about to get booped on the nose
Here he is, ruining a perfectly good moment between Mommy and Daddy
Here he is, ruining a perfectly good moment between Mommy and Daddy

6) A sinister angel extended family also makes an appearance — what gives?

These hooded characters are totally ruining the vid's blissful vibe.

7) And finally — Taher Shah seems to be off the market. He's wearing a wedding ring.

Sorry ladies!

each scene was bringing a bigger shock. how can anybody think like that and then goes on to spend money and energies on such a project. ther is one thing that we must miss is that Tahir and lady angel and the kids are all too healthy to act as Angels. I could not see the whole of it. my kids were asking Papa what you're watching.

His exceptional work doesn't sit down well with the norms of media production and the fact that he is serious on such work, makes the output funny. But I inspire and respect him for two things 1) He works hard to produce his original work and 2) He doesn't care about the negativity and fun being made on his work. He is not taken seriously by the mass but the fact that he was trending in Pakistan and India which implies that he is known by hundreds of millions of people and that fact makes him a celebrity in his own class.

I think a new genre must now be announced in the world of entertainment and arts by dedicating it to Tahir Shah. Keep it up Sir, do not listen to people as always and do what the "Angel-Eyes" telling you to do.
