Remember the Numa Numa guy?
It was one of the earliest viral videos. One day in 2004, Gary Brolsma sat in front of his computer webcam and hit "play" on a recording of "Dragostea din tei" by Moldovan pop band O-Zone. Then, he... well, he...
Then, he posted the video to a small video-sharing site, where it caught on like wildfire, becoming known simply as "the Numa Numa video", after a phrase repeated in the song. The video migrated to other video sites, including YouTube, and was viewed over ten million times. People kind of laughed at him and his geekiness. He was so geeky! He was the newer version of the Star Wars kid.
Today I stumbled across a little piece of internet awesomeness. In October 2009, during the halftime show of a football game, the Michigan State University Marching Band invited Gary to... well, to... Oh well, just watch the video.
I think I love the Michigan State University Marching Band.
