Tunak Tunak Tun -- Caucasian edition (and Rick who's Asian).

Which is my favourite fan video of this song, if only for the back story.

What's the best part of the 17-year old Metafilter thread?

Is it It's 6Mb, you ought to let people know that. FYI. or what?

Starts slow, gets better. I can't stop watching the guitarist, who looks like an incredibly talented classical guitarist that (by clothing) has been roped into this by his wrong-side-of-the-tracks friends but (by movements) is the most metal of all of them.

Gotta say, I am not the happiest with the world I live in, but this makes it a little bit better.

The good news is: this video is so awesome, it will (almost) offset the reminder that we are aging far more rapidly than we would like.

I don't know what I expected but I wasn't ready.
This is great.

I thought it was going to be a metal cover of Da Da Da by Trio, but this is much more delightful!

Am I the only one who prefers SHAA RA RA? (note: that is how the name of the song looked when I downloaded the mp3, the name came already in all-caps).

ahh, brings me back to the days of my white friends in college laughing over the video but when i go to my indian friends' parties the song always come on and everybody breaks out their best moves and it's awesome fun.

numaner - this has been one of my legit favorite songs since i first heard it from that white college type (i am white but a high school dropout). it's on my "bootyshakin'" playlist and i took great pains back in the day to learn the dance moves totally shitfaced. i actually had a tiny asthma attack dancing to it today while i was putting this post together. i know why people mocked it, but i don't know ~why~ people mocked it, you know? from top to bottom it's a great package of entertainment.

(one of the reasons i went ahead and linked the old thread - besides the coincidence of it being a little over a week and 17 years ago - is i loved how the thread is filled with people saying "this isn't funny! this is fun)

This is delightfully edited. I also checked out their take on "Mundian To Bach Ke" and couldn't stop laughing at intro, especially the nod to El Chupacabra.

Not bad! I was unaware of the original, and I didn't even need a 4-digit UID to get it!

I had never seen this before or heard of it. How did I get through this life? And, now that I have seen it, this is all I can think of.
