Egyptian puppet Abla Fahita poses for sportswear giant Adidas


DUBAI: From a widely popular satirical show to a Netflix series, Egyptian puppet Abla Fahita has been making headlines in the region.

The puppet’s latest venture is a collaboration with German sportswear giant Adidas, which was revealed on Monday.

Fahita, in the campaign images shared on the puppet’s Instagram account, posed wearing the label’s famous Stan Smith sneakers that have now become “more sustainable,” according to the brand.

The puppet also championed Adidas socks and a jacket, which were paired with a pink skirt. To complete the look, Fahita opted for a green wig to match the brand’s initiative to go green and to “end plastic waste.”

Just last month, Fahita’s first Netflix series, “Drama Queen,” arrived on Netflix. The six-episode series sees the puppet star in an action-packed comedy adventure alongside her children Caro and Boudi, and actors Bassem Samra, Donia Maher, and Osama Abdallah.

The puppet character was created and is voiced by Egyptian Hatem El-Kashef. The character Fahita is a housewife with two sons and first appeared on screens in 2011.
