Dumbass internet craze alert

This will be everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Within a few weeks. You heard it here second (pinched from NYLPM)

A four-year-old has beaten Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue to the top of the German pop charts.

Joy Gruttmann’s Snappy the Little Crocodile was released as a single after it was posted on a website by her family.

The joke nursery song, with its chorus: “Schni schna schnappi schnappi schnappi schnapp”, was picked up by a local radio station in Cologne.

Joy is the youngest recording artist in German history to make it to the Top 10 and her song is outselling the likes of Kylie’s I Believe In You and Robbie Williams’s Misunderstood.

Joy now has her own official website, where Schnappi baseball caps and T-shirts can be bought along with the official Schnappi CD, the Schnappi video, Schnappi DVD and the Schnappi video game.

Schni schna schnappi schnappi schnappi schnapp is the story of a baby croc’s teething attempts on his father’s leathery leg - and how proud mother crocodile is of him.

MTV Germany has also started playing a dance remix version that is being played at Germany’s hottest clubs.

So that’s what happened to Nikki Webster etc…
