GARY DROLSMA LIVE!!! (http://www.mskplanet.com/numanumaye.htm)

In case you don't know what the fuss is about, here's a little background...

The video is basically a 19-year old guy from New Jersey who is miming the lyrics (and dancing!) to "O-Zone - Dradostea Din Tei", which is a Romanian dance song that seems to have done well over the summer. The funniest part of the video, other than the dancing, is the photo of the feta cheese that appears to the lyric "fericirea"!!! It's been circulating on the web for a few months but this story was on all of the news networks and shows this morning (17 February 2005).


Here are the lyrics...
Ma-ia-hii
Ma-ia-huu
Ma-ia-hoo
Ma-ia-haha
[These are just sounds.]

- Verse -
[ROMANIAN]
Alo, Salut, sunt eu, un haiduc,
Si te rog, iubirea mea, primeste fericirea.
Alo, alo, sunt eu Picasso,
Ti-am dat beep, si sunt voinic,
Dar sa stii nu-ti cer nimic.
[ENGLISH]
Hello [on a cellphone], greetings, it's me, an outlaw,
I ask you, my love, to accept happiness.
Hello, hello, it's me, Picasso,
I sent you a beep [cellphone signal], and I'm brave [or strong],
But you should know that I'm not asking for anything from you.

- Chorus (2 times) -
[ROMANIAN]
Vrei sa pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma iei, nu ma, nu ma, nu ma iei.
Chipul tau si dragostea din tei,
Mi-amintesc de ochii tai.
[ENGLISH]
You want to leave but you don't want don't want to take me,
don't want don't want to take me, don't want don't want don't want to take me.
Your face and the love from the linden trees,
And I remember your eyes.

- Verse -
[ROMANIAN]
Te sun, sa-ti spun, ce simt acum,
Alo, iubirea mea, sunt eu, fericirea.
Alo, alo, sunt iarasi eu, Picasso,
Ti-am dat beep, si sunt voinic,
Dar sa stii nu-ti cer nimic.
[ENGLISH]
I call you [over the phone], to tell you what I feel right now,
Hello, my love, it's me, your happiness.
Hello, hello, it's me again, Picasso,
I sent you a beep [cellphone signal] and I'm brave [or strong],
But you should know that I'm not asking for anything from you.

I heard he was from Finalnd or New Zealand or somewhere.

Wasn't there another thing similar to this a year or two ago with another kid?

This video is too funny. Thanks for posting the title JP I've been wondering what it was called so I could try to download it. And also I couldn't get yer link to work so here's one that may. Click on "where to see it" Link (http://www.funpic.hu/swf/numanuma.html)

Yeah... the link is dodgy. It think a lot of people are getting onto that site and the activity is crashing it.

I found that a couple weeks ago, posted it everywhere and still watch it. It definately makes you laugh hysterically. we even went so far as to get the actual song and blare it in our house. One of my roomies LOATHES it, so we get about 3 of us which loud speakers and blare it at the same time. Good times. :D

I just downloaded that song today. It's the worst song but you've gotta love it and this kid is a good rival for the SW kid.
