"Makmende uses viagra in his eyedrops just to look hard"

So, I'll admit I'm a bit late on this one.  Below is "Makmende Amerudi," the music video for Just A Band's new single, "Ha-He."

The video has gained considerable popularity recently and is being hailed as "Kenya's first viral internet meme." It's not hard to see why it's so popular.

Anyway, I've had Just A Band's new album, "82," for a while now and it's quite entertaining. You can listen to the full album and learn more about the group here.

Also, good article on the video's viral status here.
