VIDEO OF THE WEEK

  • Israeli Journalist auto-tunes Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's recent speech (almost 2M views)
    • Journalist Alooshe spent a few hours using Auto-Tune to set the speech to the music of “Hey Baby,” a 2010 electro hip-hop song by American rapper Pitbull, featuring another artist, T-Pain. He titled it “Zenga-Zenga,” echoing Col. Qaddafi’s repetition of the word zanqa, Arabic for alleyway. In the early hours of Wednesday morning Mr. Alooshe had uploaded the remix to YouTube, and began sending the link to the pages of young Arab revolutionaries. By Sunday, the original clip had more than 400,000 hits and had gone viral.
