Numa Numa

The Romanian pop band O-Zone can thank one man for much of their success in the USA. Gary Brolsma made an amateur video of himself singing along to the O-Zone song "Dragostea din tei". This video became known as the Numa Numa video or the Numa Numa dance. This name came from the song's chorus "nu mă, nu mă iei," meaning, roughly, "you won't take, won't take me."

The video of Gary lip-synching to the song was released on the Newgrounds site in 2004 - since then it's been seen more than 13 million times and copied to hundreds of websites and blogs!

Other Numa Numa fans have made their own dance video.

Gary's video was shown on many US TV channels, including ABC's Good Morning America to NBC's The Tonight Show and VH1's Best Week Ever.
