To my surprise, it was my little daughter on youtube watching the video of Dhinchek Pooja and the song was “Dilon ka shooter hai mera scooter………..
Funny expressions, no, no, I don’t have the right words to explain. It was funny or some psychiatric outburst or something else, beyond my comprehension. But wait, wait, I started watching and liked it in some weird way. I searched for other similar videos and watched them with apt attention, which were equally horrific or weird. I felt guilty of my choice but again, there were millions of views and realisation dawned on me that I was not alone in this journey of weirdness.
And the surprise is that she is also not alone in her pursuit of weirdness. There is Alam from Bangladesh and Rajkumar from Assam doing the similar yeomen service to the society. Please, please see the following videos:-
Whatever you say about pathetic singing style, aged uncle or a skinny man dancing to glory with beautiful females, they all are hit and trending in social media. People are enthralled and the comments on the videos are much more entertaining. I have shortlisted some really interesting comments:-
Comments for Dhinchek Pooja
Now I use “Selfie Maine leli Aaj” as my alarm tone for 6:00 am…Now I wake up at 5:30 Thank you Dhinchak Pooja
Today I took revenge from my ex. By sending Dhinchak Pooja’s “selfie maine leli aaj”
“Dhinchak Pooja it shows India and we Indians have a huge diversity and huge tolerance limit”
I like Dhinchak Pooja. Will society accept me?”
Comments for Alom
“Aree bapre Bangladesh ki halat itni kharab he?”
“Mujhe bhi hero banalo yaar”
“Mujhe koi poison dedo mai nahi chahti ab jeena”
“Jisne bhi Alom ki casting ki hai usko goli maar deni chahiye”
Comments for Rajkumar
“Dhinchak Puja ka pati mil gaya
“Is it weird that I secretly like this song?”
“Arrest those 375 viewers who liked this?”
“Every time I fight with my wife then watch this video. And realise life is not so pathetic as compared to this video.”
“I was suicidal and the joy of this video game me the motivation to continue with life.”
All this led me to think and analyse as to what is it that is making all this surprisingly weird behaviors click among the masses.
If you still think it worthless, click on the following link to check monthly income of Dhinchek Pooja-
Had they all been even average in their respective talents, no one would have noticed them. It is utter lack of talent that is making them shine and abuzz in the virtual world.
Here come the 10 reasons after carrying out a lot of research that explains these weird style icons being a big hit:-
- Shock Effect
Anyone watching the video for the first time gets a shock as if 440V current has passed through the body. It becomes really difficult to believe that someone can upload such a video of own talent. By the time you overcome the shock, video is complete.
- Dream or Reality
You still are not able to believe your eyes after watching the weirdest video of your life. Your all pre-conceived notions about talent lie shattered in front of your eyes. A person again watches the video to make sure that he is not in the world of dreams.
- Hypnotic Confidence
We all have stage fear and if we feel endowed with average talent, the fear is compounded. And here is someone with utter disregard to the factor of talent and still dared to come on social media challenging the entire world. Confidence is definitely hypnotic.
- Your Confidence level rises
Our maid walks up to Priya and says “Madam, if she can become a hit, I can also do it”. Confidence has risen just by seeing the video.
- Entertainment Value
Whether you like it or not, at the end of the video, a smile crosses your face. One is definitely entertained at very little cost.
- You do the Publicity for them
Yes, you do it. One cannot help sharing the amazing experience with your friends or relatives and free publicity is ensured. Once in a gathering, Rajesh enquired about Dhinchek Pooja and everyone in the room exclaimed ‘you don’t know Dhinchek Pooja!’
- Curiosity leads you to find more
You have watched the video and even discussed it with your friends. Sensational coverage and interviews by media further flare your curiosity. Now you want to do a little search and find the next video of your favorite star.
- I am Jealous
I must admit that jealousy overtook me after watching videos of Alom and Rajkumar being flocked with beautiful girls. Good singers are jealous that they could not succeed but this Dhinchek has rocked. They are in your mind in spite of whatever reason, may be for reasons of jealousy.
