A decade of Internet superstars: where are they no...
<b>Gary Brolsma: "Numa Numa"</b> <br> A very animated lip-syncing and dancing performance known as "<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60og9gwKh1o" target="_blank">Numa Numa</a>" catapulted Gary Brolsma to Internet fame in 2004. Brolsma's simple clip of himself silently singing along with a tune by the Moldovan pop group O-Zone became one of the Web's most popular viral videos, spawning countless <a href="http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/439936/" target="_blank">parodies</a> and <a href="http://www.newnuma.com/" target="_blank">sequels</a>.<br> Four years later, "Numa" remains focus of Brolsma's life. Since his initial performance, Brolsma has been busily working on a complete "<a href="http://www.numanetwork.com/" target="_blank">Numa Network</a>," which he describes as an online channel "almost like a television station, only broadcast right on YouTube." He also runs a computer repair and Web design company and sings for a band called <a href="http://www.thenonetheless.com/" target="_blank">Nonetheless</a>.<br> "It's all fun," Brolsma says. "I enjoy making people smile." I resisted the impulse to ask whether Brolsma's band actually covers (or for that matter, lyp-syncs) "Numa."
