Behold, the hottest viral craze around: Soldiers dancing to pop tunes during wartime. This time around, a group of Israeli soldiers break out into a spontaneous dance number in the streets of Hebron to Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok.”
Although the video quickly went viral, it was taken off YouTube by the original uploader yesterday after media outlets started picking up the vid and contacting the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) spokesperson’s unit, according to Israel News. The video is now back up on YouTube, but the six soldiers involved in the dance are facing disciplinary hearings.
Reviews are mixed across the blogosphere — most people find the vid funny, a little levity amidst a lot of turmoil. Others think the men were grossly overstepping their bounds. (Just take a look at the title someone added to the vid…) As you may recall, the now-famous viral video featuring U.S. soldiers dancing to Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” was a-OK with the military. What do you think makes this incarnation different? The fact that the men were dancing in Hebron, a very holy — and turbulent — place, or that they were on duty?
