I’m going to have the words “eye” and “to” running through my head for the rest of the day. There might be more words to the song; I’ve watched it twice now and all I’ve retained is an endless, soulless droning of those words. Meet Pakistani “crooner” Taher Shah — he looks like the long-haired version of Young Turks host Cenk Uygur and sings like the “£1 Fish” guy. And now, with over 2 million views across both his English and native Urdu videos, he’s on his way to becoming the next, well, choose whatever forgettable singer became briefly viral in the wake of Rebecca Black or Psy.
Still, my 10-month-old niece, Lily, watched the entire video and seemed delighted by it, so maybe he’s got a career as a Teletubby?
