Several times lately, the media in Indonesia is being intensively-insurgent discussing about the phenomenon of video "Keong Racun".

Try to type the keyword "Keong Racun" in a kind of search engine like Google, you'll find millions of sites that appoint them as the main title. Even this phenomenon is a trend in some blog posts and forums. Until now, the video "Keong Racun" on Youtube has witnessed more than 3 million viewers. A fantastic number for the size of local video on Youtube. No cover possible those numbers will continue to move higher along with the warmth of the rumors circulating in the community. So what exactly is the phenomenon of "Keong Racun" then?

Keong Racunís phenomenon is actually a video about two teenage girls named Shinta and Jojo, who was a lipsync singing a song titled "Keong Racun" (Toxic snails). They upload the video on Youtube. Keong Racun is the title of a local track in one province in Indonesia. The song is homage to "dangdut", a stream genre that is claimed to be native to Indonesia. Without their surprise, the video got a tremendous response, exceeding their expectations fad that just want to show their existence.

In fact, Shinta and Jojo admit they can not and dare to sing the song live. They say that they do not really master the technique of singing, a requirement to become a star singer. But the business still must walk in line with expectations to the exclusion of all sorts of existing conditions. As long as there is a demand from the public, there is no harm in producing the album Shinta and Jojo for the benefit of mere business. Popularity Shinta and Jojo the video Keong Racun fame defeating the original singer. According to news sources, the song was first popularized by a local singer named Lisa.

Sometimes the gift came from something small and we usually do every day. Just like Jojo and Shinta, who is thought that matter and they gained popularity when this fad started from them. You too, who knows the grace will come your way through things that you underestimate.
