Is “One Pound Fish” The 2013 Version Of “Gangnam Style”?

“Gangnam Style” has reached over 1 billion views on YouTube. “One Pound Fish”, which is likened to “Style” has just under 12 million views in less than a month.

Muhammad Shahid Nazir, who sings “One Pound Fish”, is a 31 year old Pakistani fish seller at Queens Market In London.

“Have a, have a look, one pound fish. Very, very good, one pound fish,” which in U.S. Dollars is $1.60 for those wondering.

He made his own video earlier last year and put it on YouTube. As it became a viral sensation, Warner Music approached Muhammad to make a techno-dance infused version of his video. The outcome you can see above. The original version is posted below.

“One Pound Fish changed my whole life,” Nazir, who returned to Pakistan last week to a hero’s welcome, told the Associated Press. “I am so happy now.”

Muhammad will be in the U.S. shortly to promote the song and video here.-DocFB

    R U Kidding Me? Warner Music approached this dude to make the video? Meanwhile, all the kids with real talent practicing with actual instruments hoping to get a break are….well, practicing…no wonder the industry is in trouble. Sorry but I don’t think such trivial garbage is humorous at all, in fact, its rather scary.

    This could be the USA’s new theme song in reference to the GMO Salmon the FDA silently passed through for final approval. 🙁
