YouTube Vuvuzela: Have you tried it?

FIFA World Cup 2010 has been a little noisier than normal, and this is thanks to the popularity of Vuvuzela’s. When the World Cup first kicked-off there were complaints about Vuvuzela putting players off, but now we are seeing them everywhere.

One quick trip to your local store and you will be surrounded by Vuvuzela, head to the iPhone app store and you will also find many Vuvuzela apps, and now it looks like your not safe on Video sharing sites like YouTube.

According to TechCrunch, YouTube’s latest prank seems to be the addition of a Vuvuzela button. These buttons only appear on some videos, but clicking them will start an annoying sound just like a Vuvuzela.

You know the sound, like your surrounded by a swarm of insects. While FIFA did not decide to ban the traditional Vuvuzela, some television networks have shown viewers how to block the sound from computers, and TV sets.

For the people behind the Vuvuzela in South Africa, it’s about making money. Tech Crunch write that the guy bringing plastic Vuvuzela to South Africa also sell ear plugs. Read more in TechCrunch’s article.
