A comedic sketch about Ermia’s participation in Googoosh Music Academy. Ermia is called “Gher-nayā,” a made-up name meaning “Don’t Shimmy” and a joke on her immodest behaviour on the program (in Persian). The sketch makes fun of Googoosh and her fellow judges while highlighting the supposed moral and religious inconsistencies between a female singer and religiosity.
A satirical cartoon posted on an Iranian website depicts Ermia in the fictional “Ashraf Academy,” a reference to the Mojahedin-e Khalq’s base in Iraq, Camp Ashraf. A grotesque Googoosh addressees the fully-veiled Ermia saying, “Good job — you’ve kept your veil and reached your artistic goals.”
An image posted on the Iranian website Ruydād depicts the “danger” of Ermia and Manoto1 television, shown here as a terrifying zombie demon.
