Watch: Activist Punks Saudi Officials

Fresh from "punking" Iran's foreign minister with a "celebration" of his country's execution killing-spree, human rights activist David Keyes is at it again.

After asking viewers to vote for which dictator to prank next, Keyes – who heads the Advancing Human Rights NGO – has proven he's no partisan: moving from Iran to the mullahs' arch-rivals Saudi Arabia.

But despite being at odds over political control of the Middle East, as well as sitting on opposite sides of the Shia-Sunni Muslim divide, the two countries have a lot in common – at least when it comes to human rights, or rather the lack thereof.

Saudi Arabia, too, is one of the world's leading executioners – but it was a decision by the notoriously homophobic gulf kingdom to hold a job fair at the Gaylord National Resort which proved too perfect for Keyes to resist.

As in Iran, homosexuals in Saudi Arabia face arrest, flogging and even execution – usually by hanging.

Poking fun at the ironic choice of venue to draw attention to Saudi human rights abuses, Keyes held a "gay after party."

Unsurprisingly, none of the Saudi diplomats who were invited chose to attend.
