Dragostea Din Tei

J-Fav's friend introduced us to the spring-of-2004 (?) Moldovan / Romanian pop hit "Dragostea Din Tei" by O-Zone.

According to Wikipedia, it's difficult to translate from Romanian, and several Flash animation parodies and fake translations have appeared on the web. Have a few minutes to spare, and want to see Japanese animation of Ronald McDonald and animals throwing Picasso art at each other?

Well, click right here, my friend, to hear a wacked-out version of Dragostea Din Tei, "Maiyahi" by Ikari. I'm curious what N-h-Movement, R-Bone, B-Fly, and J-Gavel, our linguist friends make of it. (Okay, at least that's a stab at your rap names.)


ps Yeah, I removed the pet peeves.

In my professional linguistic opinion? The Japanese are WEIRD.
