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!
