Just to let you all know, yes, this is the original location of the Numa Numa Dance... right here on NG. The internet sent it around like crazy, and it's wound up on over 80 websites that I could find, with an appearance on CNN, and just now on VH1's Best Week Ever. I've recieved tons of e-mail's and hits to my website, and I just want to thank you for all the feedback and support that you've given me. Never in a million years would I have thought this would hit over 10 million views.

For people who still don't know, yes that is me in the video, and the song is entitled "Dragostea Din Tea" by the Romanian pop band "O-Zone".

This is the special version where you can turn the subtitles on and off, and play it without the pictures in-between.

Overblown.

So, my take on this video fad? I think it's annoying, trite, and stupid. It showcases no particular talent beyond the ability to act silly in front of a webcamera. In other words, anyone with the will and a webcame could do this. From a technical analysis, I don't think the lip synching is as good as people claim, and the low video bitrate causes the whole picture to go spotty during high-action scenes. Flash is also not an appropriate medium for strictly-video media. The "original" version features odd picture inserts that don't really add much to the "quality", such as it is. Finally, the video has no ending as such, but repeats indefinetly at an odd spot. Basically, this movie has no outstanding qualities.
.
Now that being said, the only real problem here is that this humble video has completely overblown by the fickle and easily-amused American public. This is not the author's fault. From spotlights on CNN, Good Morning America, and VH1, FAR too much attention and importance has been thrust on such a simple and (probably) spur-of-the-moment home video. Who knows how many college students, relatives, and co-workers have had their inboxes spammed by this, expecting somthing awe-inspiring. People's expectations are high, and of course they're disappointed by the offering, because it wasn't intended for mass-distribution. This is all very much like the "Star Wars Kid" fad.
.
Finally (yes, I am closing), this part is to the author in particular: I wanted to clarify that I hold no animosity towards you. In fact, I WAS amused by the video (and watched it several times). This review is over-done only because the video was over-hyped. Honestly, I wish you the best, and encourage you to never lose that sense of flamboyancy and zest for life. Don't let the haters ridicule your liveliness; just be yourself. On the other hand, don't let this fad get to your head. Just enjoy your fifteen minutes of fame and move on. Congratulations on snagging that elusive internet fame, and good luck in the future!

I've seen this before, creativity is the key...

Although this video is funny, it's nothing new. I like the song, and I think thats the major reason people like this video. I was at my freinds and he minimized the video, and just listened to the song over and over. I asked him why, and he replied "I like the song." GMan I don't think you've introduced an awesome video, but rather introduced us all to a song that is catchy... I think a link for the song should be put up next, in place of this video..

I don't get it

How in the world is this submission doing so well? Why is getting all the hype? It's just a fat guy singing karaoke. If I recall correctly (which I do), there was a submission with the exact same song that received Turd of the Week honors. Why hasn't this film received it also? It's no different, and it's not even a true flash animation. I just don't understand the hype on this.
