If you clicked on this, you've heard the song "Asereje" at some point in your life. If not, here's a refresher:
The one hit wonder was released in the summer of 2002, the catchy yet meaningless chorus, along with its fun dance was everywhere that summer.
But now, thanks to this twitter thread by @Kueaff, my life has changed and shaken to the core.
Turns out there *is* a reason why the chorus of the song sounds like gibberish!!!!!!
@Kueaff points out the song starts out talking about a guy named Diego, so the story is about him.
Then the lyrics say "with the moon in his pupils, and leftover contraband on his blue suit." So, Diego was high on something.
Then according to Las Ketchup, Diego gets to the club and it's super packed, but he doesn't care because he loves to dance.
Diego knows the DJ at this club, so they make sure they play his favorite song at midnight.
And what was Diego's favorite song?
"Rapper's Delight" by The Sugarhill Gang!
...Was supposed to be this:
People following the thread on twitter were also SHOCKED.
Trying to cope with this new reality.
It's been there all along and we *just* found out.
We all basically got mind-fucked by a song from 2002.
And I'm listening to Las Ketchup on repeat now.
