So what's the deal with this "Ketchup" song? Is it "The Ketchup Song"? Or just "Ketchup"? And why all the commotion?
I haven't heard it. So I have no idea what all the hubbub is, or if, indeed, it warrants the hubbub.
Am I missing anything, other than an opportunity to pun away to my heart's content with all sorts of condiment-related hilarity?

I haven't heard it out here, but could it be a plot on the part of Garrison Keillor's "Ketchup Advisory Board"?
If it is, maybe it can be harmlessly confined to Minnesota (I suggest that as a former Minnesotan).
It's the next "Macarena", with 75% more gibberish!
If you didn't run screaming from the room when you saw the words, "the next 'Macarena'", I pity you.
Laugh! "Las Ketchup" is actually the name of the group who sings the "Asereje", based (and I use the word loosely) on an oldie pre-rap song. It's one of these silly "summer hits" that one way or another make it to the top, super-top and mega-top hit lists. Remember the Macarena? Well, something like that, but not quite. Laugh.
I was tempted to paste here a video URL, but I don't think it's fair to punish you like that, not when I fancy you're gonna end up pucking from Ketchup overdose in about two weeks !!
Oh, and I forgot to add a little "cultural" background to the previous post. These girls call themselves "The Ketchup" because they're daughters of a famous flamenco guitar player (a serious, good one) which goes by the artist name "El Tomate", which in Spanish means "Tomato".
Wonder if this piece of breaking news will make it over the Atlantic!?! Anyway, sorry for abusing your Comments space Jodi, I guess I couldn't help myself this time around.
Didn't want previous link to look like a shameless self-promotion. Click here for Ketchup demo.
kinda too late for that miss shameless self promoter. bah!
I'm just riding coattails through life, doing the Ketchup dance every shameless step of the way.
I got to see the step by step instructions.
But for some reason the video didn't play.
I'm thinking this is a good thing.
Pun!?!? Did someone say "pun"?!?!
(For those of you who are behind reading the previous comments, I'll afford you the opportunity to ketchup...)
Hot Dog! Finally a dance that's really the catsup's pajamas. Sure, I thought the Macarena was the ultimate hit, but Heinz-sight is 20/20, as they say. I've been Hunts-ing through newspapers and websites for the next big thing to come along, becoming quite well-red I must say, and here it hits me in the face like a ripe tomato! While the dance may be fun, I've found that after opening up with the dance it's best to continue it in an air-conditioned environment.
In my op-onion, I hope these girls don't relish in this accomplishment and keep the momentum going or they'll find themselves in a pickle and become the next victim of Colonel Mustard in the kitchen with a one-hit Wonder.
*giggling at my desk*
oh gawd Thomas... you DO make me laugh.
These Ketchup girls were featured in People magazine. (and yes, I do have a subscription... well! it was a fundraiser and my niece threatened me!)
I still like the Hokey Pokey better.
Ive never heard of it. I guess I live a sheltered life. Ha:)
I like the "Hokey Poking"... You still put your left hand in and out, and while you really can't shake it all about, you can manage wiggle your fingers a little.
And I can't tell you how many weddings I've been thrown out of for doing the Choking-The-Chicken dance...
Da-da-DADA-dada-DA, da-da-DADA-dada-DA, da-da-DADA-dada-DA (spth-spth-spth-spth)
I get most of my searches now because I ranted about that damn song (and about how mustard would be a finer condiment to have a song about).
I saw the CD in WalMart. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.
(Jodi, if that doesn't get you some Googles on NO, I don't know what will.)
Well, I must confess *I* love the song... A rare occurence among summer hits.
Especially the meaningless chorus
"Asereje ja de je de jebe tu de jebere seibunouva
Majavi an de buguni an de buididipi..."
It's catchy, dammit. It's a bastardization of "Rapper's Delight" though.
