Gary Brolsma, 2004

In December 2004 18-year-old Gary Brolsma uploaded a quirky video of himself mimicking the song Dragostea din tei of Moldavian pop group O-Zone. Gary became an overnight Internet phenomenon and was nicknamed the Numa Numa guy. By June 2012 the video called Numa Numa Song had been watched over 700 million times. Since its release, Numa Numa Song has spawned many parody videos, TV series and even music videos of famous artists. You can still see the song on YouTube, but be warned: it will stick in your head forever.
