Gary Brolsma is one of the most famous kids on the Internet. Brolsma posted a video of himself dancing to the song “Dragostea din tei” by a group called O-Zone on Newgrounds.com. In less than three months, the video was seen over 2 million times. In the original Numa Numa dance, Brolsma was awarded $45,000. In the video, Brolsma was wearing headphones, lip syncing, and throwing his arms in the air. Since 2004, the video has generated over 18 million times.
The Numa Numa dance song is now a part of pop culture. Rap artist T.I. used the Numa Numa song for his song “Live Your Life” that features Rihanna.
Now Brolsma is back in the spotlight as Geico has decided to use him for a commercial. In this commercial, Brolsma is dancing the same goofy dance and wearing headphones to Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me.” In the background, the Geico gecko mascot is dancing along. This video was put together by The Martin Agency. The parody will be placed on several video hosting websites such as YouTube, MetaCafe, DailyMotion etc.
