Viral Video: Goodbye World Cup (And Good Riddance Vuvuzela)

It’s hard to believe the 2010 FIFA World Cup is finally over, after lasting what felt like a badillion years.

But Spain grabbed the soccer championship Sunday, and now the vuvuzelas have gone silent.

Thankfully, the droning plastic horn that can cause ear damage was not the only music out there.

Thus, let’s play the videos for the official song (Shakira singing “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)”); the official anthem (R. Kelly with “Sign of a Victory”); and my fave, the non-official “Wavin’ Flag” by K’naan.

Also I could not resist a short with a vuvuzela, of course!

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
