YouTube Adding Vuvuzela Noise to All Videos

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.

    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.

    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.
