YouTube Adding Vuvuzela Noise to All Videos

BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Earlier on we wrote about what you can do to take down the noise of the vuvuzelas while you're watching the World Cup. You can either use an audio editing software, or even an EQ in your audio system could do the job.

As we're all trying to make things a little less buzzy in our viewing experiences, YouTube has done the opposite and has added in a soccer ball button into some of the videos on the site. Pressing it will evoke the hoard of vuvuzelas.

Check out one such YouTube video here, or just find your own to hear it in World Cup mode.

    Yes. It's a poor sample. Choppy. A flowing sound wouldn't be so annoying.

    you do not understand world cup spirit, maybe because its not in your country, maybe if it is ever in your country you will understand.
    this is similar to google replacing the image on their search site with a mini pacman game on pacmans anniversary.

    Yes Yes this is my country but I still don't like it!!! I was at the England game in Port Elizabeth yesterday and the singing of the English was a much better sound than this annoying Vuvuzela sound. But yes everybody got there own liking but I applaud Youtube for getting in the soccer spirit.

    To each their own I guess.
    But if someone brought one of those damned things inside my house, a paramedic would have to remove it and they'd limp for a week.

    If this is an example of the inane crap that comes with the world cup, I hope it NEVER comes to this country.

    What's more annoying that 80000 soccer twats? 80000 soccer twats with vuvuzelas.

    It's an african thing. The europeans hate it as much as we do, but fifa said they're not gonna get involved with anything cuz of the 'Culture' or some crap like that.

    And it's a lot more then 80,000, over a billion watch the world cup :p

    it's ok to have the "world cup" spirit, but it's not ok to become annoying, which is exactly what the people who use these stupid things have become

    I don't know what "this country" stands for, but if you refer to USA. Guess what the World Cup 1994 was hosted by USA.
