The morning bzzzzzzzz: YouTube rolls out a vuvuzela button

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
YouTube is getting in on the vuvuzela madness.

The buzzing sound that has permeated the World Cup can now be heard when you watch your favorite viral video at work on your own personal time.

Seriously, try it out. There's a little soccer ball icon in the lower right-hand corner of the video. Press it and it will completely drone out any sound.



Not 100 percent certain how this enhances the viewing experience, but suppose it's a logical step.

Vuvuzelas are seemingly everywhere now, from the stands in Pretoria, the streets of Chicago and even Major League Baseball games. And while they're the object of much derision, we in the newsroom kind of like them. At least, I think that's the reason they're blasting six hours a day from the televisions.
