"Tunak Tunak Tun", often referred to solely as "Tunak Tunak", is a bhangra/pop song created by Indian artist Daler Mehndi and released in 1998. It has become an internet meme because of its catchy tune and the amusing dance in its music video, inspiring numerous spin-offs and parodies. The music video was the first made in India to use bluescreen technology, which allowed the singer to superimpose his image over various computer-generated backgrounds. Oddly enough with the image of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow.
The "strange" dancing and presence of only the singer in this video was a response to criticism from the world of Bhangra pop. Many critics at the time complained that his music was popular due to his videos which featured throngs of beautiful women dancing; his response was to create a video that featured only himself. As he predicted, the song was still a huge success, but the phenomenon of foreign language and unusual dancing made the video a cult hit in other countries as well.
The dancing in the video has been used in the Blizzard Entertainment game World of Warcraft for the dance emote of the males of the Draenei race, as well as in the game Medal of Honor: Allied Assault - Spearhead as an easter egg.
The song was the unofficial theme song of Concordia Language Villages' International Day in 2005."

Reason for this thread is to see whatcha think about Blizz's decision about using the song, why the picked it to be used/sung/danced by Draenei, and finally: your opinion of the song (personally, I liked it after the first listen-to).
So yeah, talk. ^_^
