Song of the Day #1,749: ‘I’m A Gummy Bear (The Gummy Bear Song)’ – Gummibär

gummy_bearI occasionally look at YouTube’s list of most-watched video clips of all-time just to see where the country is headed.

Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ holds onto the crown, and has now been viewed more than 1.5 BILLION times. To top that off, an alternate version of the song performed with Korean pop star Hyuna now sits in the 20th spot with an additional 343 million views. That takes “one-hit wonder” into a new stratosphere.

The rest of the top 20 hasn’t changed much over the years. It’s still mostly made up of music videos by Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Eminem, Bruno Mars, Pitbull, Carly Rae Jepsen and Katy Perry. ‘Charlie Bit My Finger’ remains the most-watched user-submitted video, with more than 500 million views.

Sitting in the 24th spot is something brand-new to me, though I suspect I’m the last person to hear about it.

‘I’m A Gummy Bear (The Gummy Bear Song),’ the English-language version of a Hungarian song about, yes, a Gummy Bear, has been watched 320 million times, including once by yours truly. How do these things happen?

ooh i’m a gummy bear

    Daniel seems to think this song is “like seven years old!” I don’t know about that, but I’ve definitely heard it before. Not sure what it reveals about civilization that it has been watched 320 million times. I mean we all have 2:30 to devote to watching frivolous nonsense, but shouldn’t we save it for the dancing spiderman?!

    Well, until today I was blissfully unaware of this song or video. Now I’m deeply concerned that I won’t be able to get the image of a gummy bear grabbing his crotch and showing gummy ass crack out of my mind.
