    Talking "Numa Numa"

    I was first exposed to this media virus* a couple of weeks ago, but I forgot about it until earlier today when I saw it again on CNN. I got the song stuck in my head and just had to track it down.

    For those who haven't seen it, here's a link: http://uploads.ungrounded.net/206000...3_numanuma.swf

    Nicknamed the "Numa Numa Boy" video, it's a webcam video of an unknown individual, possibly Dutch, lip-syncing the pop song "Dragostea Din Tei" by the Romanian boy band O-Zone. The original music video was a big hit on German MTV.

    I also found an MP3 of the full version of the song. A warning to those who seek it: it's a major earworm, and very addictive.

    I've read that this video was also mentioned on Fox News today.

    *media virus: a term that I believe was originally coined by media analyst Douglas Rushkoff. Basically, a piece of media that spreads and behaves more like a virus than traditional broadcasted media. Example: the "Star Wars Kid" video.

    Cool

    Yeah, this damn song was on all music channels and radio stations for like several months. Luckily it's passed, but we are now infected by Schnappi virus, so it's no better.

    For a second there, the words "media virus" scared me - I'd seen that video earlier, and laughed my ass off!!!

    Seriously, seeing that video made my week.
