Fat Guy Mimes, the World Laughs

A lot of you may have seen this one before, but some guy on the Internet assured me that every respectable blog must link to it, and you've got to listen to guys on the Internet, and Superblog!! is nothing if not respectable, so here goes: featured "The Numa Numa Dance", an amusing video of a fat guy miming to Romanian pop song "Dragostea Din Tei" (originally performed by Haiducii).

The video soon turned enormously popular. It's now been viewed at least a million times on the web, featured on CNN, and inspired a load of copycats.

See it here.

This is Superblog!!'s pick for Inexplicable Web Phenomena of the Week.

Update @ 17:02: Apparently the song was originally performed by O-Zone. Haiducii's version is a cover. Superblog!! (who had never heard of either one) regrets the error.
