Zenga Zenga Song YouTube video that mocks Gaddafi passes the 1m view mark

Every geo-political shock produces its own YouTube classic, and the current strife in the Arab world is no different.

One example is a video made of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, which is currently providing a little light relief for those caught up in the Libyan tragedy.

Called Zenga Zenga Song it was made by Israeli journalist and musician Noy Alooshe and is based on the televised speech Gaddafi made last Tuesday where he effectively declared war on his own citizens.

Said Alooshe “He was dressed strangely, and he raised his arms.”

This reminded him of a trance party which featured electronic music. So with that in mind he set the video to the music of “Hey Baby” sang by the rapper T-Pain.

Uploaded last Wednesday, it has already received over 1million views by today – and has proven a big hit among Arabs, who have obviously forgiven Alooshe his Israeli roots.
