‘Bibi — Shake Shake’: Noy Alooshe’s Latest Remix

With the crowds in the streets of Israel chanting “Mubarak, Assad, Bibi Netanyahu!,” the Shmooze knew it couldn’t be far behind: a July 14 Revolution-themed Noy Alooshe remix.

What Alooshe did to Muammar Gaddafi (who can forget “Zenga Zenga?”), Israeli Kadima party politicians like Tzipi Livni and Dalia Itzik, and a variety of Israeli and American celebrities and pop singers, he has now also done to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In his “Bibi — Shake Shake” video, he does a fine job of poking fun at the Prime Minister’s recently expressed confidence that the kinds of popular uprisings associated with the Arab Spring could never happen in Israel.

This is not the first time that Alooshe, a writer and editor for the Israeli music website Shiron.net, has skewered Netanyahu. Following the Israeli Prime Minister’s address to a joint session of Congress in May, Alooshe quickly put together “Bibi Pro Americano.” Whatever one thought of Netanyahu’s speech, it was hard not to enjoy Alooshe’s remix.

With the kind of following that Alooshe’s YouTube videos have (close to 7,300,000 views and counting), Israeli leaders need to watch what they say. Now they don’t just see their words in print the next day — they might also hear them set to a beat in one of Alooshe’s clever remixes.
