William Hung inna Romanian Stylee, Mon!

Yes, my fellow fuckers - you've heard and read about buddy lip-synching (a la Ghastly Simpson) to this Eurotrash disco tune on his webcam.

Too hilarious for words, eh?

But have you ever wondered what the fuck he was lip-synching about?

For those who don't know, he was miming to a tune called "Dragostea Din Tei", translated roughly as "Love from the Linden Trees", performed by N'Sync wannabes O-Zone. The lyrics can be found right here - living proof that Dracula's descendants can be just as sappy as anything churned out by Disney's bubblegum puppy mills.

Of course, another version of this tune was covered by a certain Paula Mitrache, an ex-Miss Bucharest who records under the moniker "Haiducii", but I found it to be a bit lame compared to O-Zone's quirky rendition.

If you want to see O-Zone's video clip, click here for a slightly different mix. Be forewarned - these guys have a slightly bigger budget than buddy's, hence the over-the-top graphics (and copyright infringements).

Thankfully, a Romanian pop invasion won't be imminent any time soon, so breathe easy.
