Newgrounds Wiki: Numa Numa

On December 6th, 2004, Gary Brolsma aka @GMan250 uploaded his Numa Numa dance music video to Newgrounds. NG was the only website Gary ever officially uploaded it to.

Numa Numa quickly became a viral sensation, with over 80 websites snagging their own copies off NG. Gary made appearances on CNN and VH1's Best Week Ever, as well as a sponsored New Numa video.

When YouTube launched in 2005, someone uploaded Numa Numa there as well and for a while it was one of the top YouTube videos of all time.

In the years since, we've decided it has come time to retire Numa Numa from Newgrounds, for both legal music licensing reasons and as part of our ongoing effort to focus on animation and encourage artists to use the Audio Portal for music.
