            Something about Ammar's smile and positive eye energy makes it very hard for people to say no to him. He's aware of this ability as well and talks about it in the video where he has to spend 24hrs living off strangers' charity in Paris. He talks about being tired and lacking his normal eye energy. Really awesome guy.
