Yesterday, I discovered a blog that was new to me, GarimaShares. The blogger and I have several interests in common so today I returned to her blog to read some of her posts. One was about a song that was posted on YouTube on September 24th. The video was watched by more than 8 million people on the first day. As of today almost 116 million people have seen the original video.
Within a day there were other videos of people lip syncing the song. Some that were uploaded on the three days following the original release have more than a million views of their own.
At this point, there are more than 25 pages of YouTube videos. I’m not giving an exact number because I gave up trying to find the end of the list.
I don’t know why this song has become famous, but I’ve just spent 45 minutes looking at videos of it, so beware, it is addicting! 🙂
Be sure to check out GarimaShares too. She is a 20 year old who is going to college in Delhi and writes prose and poetry about travel, art, and life. Her photography is beautiful.
