Gary Brolsma Bio
Birthday: January 14, 1986 (Capricorn)
Born In: Saddle Brook, New Jersey, United States
Gary Brolsma is an American musician, web designer, and vlogger who rose to international fame as the creator of the ‘Numa Numa’ internet phenomenon, in 2004. A recent high school graduate at that time, he was just a bored teenager when he made a video of himself lip-syncing to the song ‘Dragostea Din Tei’ as performed by the band O-Zone. The funny video, titled ‘Numa Numa Dance,’ was first posted on the website Newgrounds.com where it went viral, and gained over two million views within three months! And we are talking about a time when video sharing across the internet was not even common! The video sharing platform YouTube was yet to be launched, and it is really surprising that a video made by a bored teenager should get millions of views within such a short time span. Even Brolsma himself was astonished by the response his video received! A decade later, in 2014, he uploaded another video titled ‘Numa Numa 10-Year Reunion’ to Newgrounds in which he is shown lip-syncing to several popular songs, such as ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift and ‘Firework’ by Katy Perry. However, due to certain reasons, both the original and the reunion videos were deleted by the Newgrounds moderation team.
