  • This song became a very popular internet meme, most likely due to the odd combination of the singer's very unique voice, his notation that he "move[s] away from the mic to breathe in," and cryptic lyrics. After being noted on the 4chan message boards, the clip went viral, amassing well over 40 million views on YouTube. The video consists of Zonday standing in front of a white curtain singing in a bizarre deep voice. The video has been parodied countless times, most notably on the South Park episode "Canada On Strike."
  • Thanks to various media outlets that have run features on YouTube stars, we know that Zonday wrote this song as a commentary on racism in America. Yes, it is an original song.
