After reading the article, I feel so bad for the poor guy. He was just having some fun, obviously, and he`s got all this crap going on now or whatever. But seriously, Dragostea din Tei, or Numa Numa, or whatever you want to call it is an awesome song, okay guys? I THINK YOU`RE COOLEST OF ALL CHEESE, GARY!

I heard that song in the SUPERMARKET the other day of all places, the "internets" is taking over RL!!!!1111.

No but seriously, he made it and put it on the internet, expect it to spread like wildfire. He should be happy for all the recognition, I`d be laughing all the way to the bank. Also, if he wants the nook nook, nothing does better than FAME, no matter how you look. Just my $.02

To bad for him...

If he knows so much about technology, have him hack into a show and get another one of his tapes shown on there.

Well its a bad kind of fame. Hed never let this live down. I mean...if William Hung actaully became good would you still respect him after American Idol and his first CD?!?!? I wouldnt really.
Id rather not be famous than be known for a bad reason and cashing in by publicly humiliating myself.

acctually, i dont think he was embarrased at first, i think it was hiim that posted the video. but maybe he didn`t want that kind of fame. i probly wouldn`t. id rather be famous for invnting some world changing machine, not because of a video of me lip syncing to a song.

My friends just discovered numa numa like 2 weeks ago and they think they are the only ones in the world who has heard it, so they think their all cool going around singing that retarded song. My friends are a bit behind the times...

I don`t know why everyone is making fun of the poor guy. If you were taped, and it got on the internet, wouldn`t YOU be embarrassed as well? It seems almost hypicritical to belittle a guy for having a good time. And pride is a very big thing...I`d be poor forever rather than getting rich from being pointed at and ridiculed. --;;

Yes, we all know that it`s really called Dragonstea Din Tei, as is says to in both the article and on newsgrounds. Numa Numa is easier to type ^_^

The other day I went on Newgrounds and saw the one where the class was singing and dancing along with him. It was like they were making fun of him and i feel so sorry for him. He seems really funny and a cool guy, though.

Aww, I feel so bad for him. I dont think hes the kind of person that wants to be famous, he just wanted to show his friends or something. He sounds deressed and unhappy. *sigh*

He should roll with it, you can`t care what people think. He should be proud its him, its funny. People need to be more outgoing, if that was me and someone said hey aren`t you the guy on the internet who does the numa numa dance, I`d be like hell yeah, what me to do it? lol

I live in Germany and I remember last summer that song was EVERYWHERE here..I even saw that band playing at the Kiliani fest (though I didn`t know who they were at the time).. I was surprised when I saw the numa numa video because I didn`t think that people in the states knew of the song too.. Anyways yea. I think that kid is funny and he was just having fun. :-)

Guy blew a big opportunity; the kind that most people never get. He could have made even more of an ass of himself and got rich off it. What did he have to lose? His pride? LOL

I agree with BigBonny, he obviously has a great sense of humor and who cares if he`s a bit overweight?

MikePiano dont be an idiot, you cant say that its his fault for enjoying himself dancing, just cos he has a little weight on him doesnt mean he shouldnt be allowed to do anything.

I feel sorry for him, he`s obviously a fun loving free spirit, who people have taken advantage of and mocked for simply having fun. I`d love to meet the guy, he`d be great fun to hang out with.
