Las Ketchup — a Spanish girl-group — has recorded an international pop hit ("The Ketchup Song") that comes complete with an irritating group dance. CNN describes it as the next Macarena.
Their song, known in Spanish as "Asereje," bases its lyrics on snippets from the 1979 classic "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugar Hill Gang, but transmogrifies them with a staccato twist from Las Ketchup's native Andalusia region.
The refrain goes like this: "Asereje ja de je de jebe tude jebere sebiunouba majabi an de bugui an de buididipi."
That's not Spanish, it's gibberish…
Teenagers in Kosovo love it. One Danish Internet portal offers the melody for downloading as a cell phone beep. And a version in Mandarin Chinese is planned for the world's most populous nation.
