This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far.

"Dinga Dinga Dee!"

What do yout think that might mean?

Frankly I have no clue either, but it is the central claim of a promotion video of Israels´arms firm Rafael for The Aero India 2009 fair held in Bangalore...

Consequently this vid was dubbed "the most atrocious defense video of all times" by Wired´s Danger Room team.

Quote
We broke a few stories here in 2009. And we had some laughs. But I think I can speak for the entire Danger Room team when I say that the absolutely most enjoyable moment of the year came in March, when this Bollywood-esque promotional video surfaced from Israeli arms-maker Rafael, featuring bare-midriff girls, flower-draped missiles, and the catch phrase “dinga dinga dee.”


I think they definitely got that one right, see to believe:

Well,  I have no idea what 'dinga dinga dee' means either.  I have a feelings it's just a nonsense phrase, as one would say 'sha la la la' in a song.  Mind you I'm not fluent in Hindi,  so I could be wrong.  My fluency is in Punjabi.   Although I can understand most of the Hindi language.  

What a strange clip, no?  The guy looks more Israeli than Indian. Although he could be Indian,  sometimes it's hard to tell.

I think it would take more than just dancing girls to seduce the Indian population, into any kind of mind set. I saw the missile though, strange.

So, what the heck is it all about then, Rattler?

Ask me!?! I am totally flabbergasted and only know I fully subscribe the DR team assessment, w/o knowing shit about the culture in depth, really (even "Bollywood" is something from another planet for me)... I  know I would feel offended (with my cultural bkgnd, of cause) as an Indian.

Because of the stupor it caused me, I brought it up.
