Muhammad Shahid Nazir — remember his name for he could be the next viral video king after Psy and his ultra infectious Oppa Gangnam Style. Nazir, a London fish seller has a hit YouTube video called “One Pound Fish” (It has so far attracted a miniscule 7 million views compared to Gangnam’s one billion) which he initially sang to attract customers. A British web designer asked him to perform his song on video 9 months ago and posted it on the popular video sharing site.
He has now inked a record deal with Warner Music and the song is also a hit iTunes. And to those who doubt his popularity, his home country of Pakistan has lifted the block on YouTube just so his countrymen can watch his video. Beat that!
♫ Have, have a look, 1 pound fish
Have, have a look, 1 pound fish…♫
This is going to haunt my dreams. 🙂
Till my next post. Peace and Stay fresh.
