An ac­ci­den­tal clas­sic, this seem­ingly in­nocu­ous line has taken on a life of its own thanks to an en­ter­tain­ing mu­si­cal remix and the won­ders of YouTube. As we write this, one ver­sion has been viewed 15.9 mil­lion times; another mix, which has been looped to last a whop­ping ten hours, has 8.2 mil­lion views. Its fame is such that Or­lando Bloom him­self recorded a video singing along to the tune be­fore col­laps­ing into a heap of gig­gles. Nat­u­rally, you can’t watch this mo­ment to­day with­out hum­ming the song for the next two weeks. In fact, you’re do­ing it now, aren’t you?
