Ok, for the record, I’m a Microsoft Fanboy through and through buuuuuut I was shown this video and the PS3 equivalent and loved them! If you listen all the way, it’s funny as hell! xD

Very familiar tune, I don’t know the song either, but I’ve heard it in a commercial or two.

I’d laugh…and admit that the 360 song was hilarious (because it was)…but my xbox hasn’t experienced the RROD yet…and I don’t want to push my luck and jinx myself. :stuck_out_tongue:

Nena is one of Germany’s most successful Pop singers. She’s been (almost consistently) popular for 30+ years. I have clue why, though.

Here’s her modern version:

And if you’re brave enough, haven’t eaten anything, then you might want to try watching the original version:

That’s surprising that she is still so popular with the wide array of modern German bands: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eJL7_vz4fk :stuck_out_tongue:

What’s wrong with fine, solid Metal? You just can’t tell quality from garbage! :injured:

At least she doesn’t have to go through a computer to make har singing bearable to listen to, unlike most pop singers these days. :slight_smile: I’m more into hard electronic music myself, but AC/DC, Megaherz, et al. certainly does make for nice listening too.

@Andrew - nice list :tup:

@stalking - eh…I was here first :rofl: besides, im supervising the little SitePoint babies :smiley:

@kohoutek - I always liked her original :sing:

@recanlago37 - That’s one of the things that we call fluff… so make sure you don’t do it very often :wink:

No, I actually like that band alot. Their one of my favorites. I just wish I could understand what they’re saying. :wink: :stuck_out_tongue:

Heh, I didn’t know she was still popular. Can you recommend any other similar popular German pop bands / groups? I’m also into Japanese pop music :smiley:

I really like that 2009 version but I can’t find any single / album on iTunes dated for 2009 or even 2008 for Nena. And what’s wrong with the original :p? The only thing that’s unbearable is the dancing and them jeans she’s wearing! Ugh! I cringed a couple of times! Haha.

Heh, thanks. And awww googoogaagaa I’m a SitePoint baby!! -throws IE6 plush teddy on the floor and at the wall- waaaaaa!!! get away stupid teddy!!

Have you guys and girls seen the PS3 Song too? That’s also pretty damn funny…The thing is, I don’t have a PS3 :smiley: Mwahaha!

Andrew Cooper

you …dont…have… a… ps3!! :eek2: omg…this is so like …scandalous!!

and btw, dont throw ur teddies around :smashy:

I had a PlayStation One and a PlayStation 2…But PS3 looks too clunky and big and just…Ugh! I’ve held one and it doesn’t feel good to be honest. Why, are you saying you have a PS3?! …That’s scandalous!

Can’t I even throw IE6 around?! I love all my teddies but IE6 teddy scares me! It makes me angry everytime I see it…I don’t want it near my other new teddies. It might infect them! :frowning:

Andrew Cooper

eh of course I have a ps3 :rolleyes: jeeeze…kids these days :hush:

thats not a teddy, that IE6 is an evil lil possessed demon robot :eek2: run!!
