The D.J. whose club-beat remix of a speech by Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi went viral on YouTube has taken on another leader – Benjamin Netanyahu, aka “Bibi.”

Israeli musician and D.J. Noy Alooshe won some renown when he transformed snippets of a 75-minute Gadhafi oration into the catchy “Zenga, Zenga,” featuring the strongman flanked by a mirror-image shot of a gyrating, scantily clad young woman.

Now it was the turn of the Israeli prime minister, whose address to the U.S. Congress won him over 20 standing ovations from the notoriously pro-Zionist body – and a YouTube remix called “Bi Bi Pro Americano.”

 

Set to the up-tempo track “We No Speak Americano” by Aussie band Yolanda Be Cool, the track plays on Netanyahu’s statement that “Israel will always [Bibi] pro-America.”

It features a hall full of congressmen leaping to their feet every time the Israeli strongman opens his mouth.

The Gadhafi remix became a huge hit in the Arab world and received more than 3.8 million hits. Early critical feedback suggests that Alooshe’s “send-up” of his prime minister lacks the wit and vitriol of “Zenga Zenga,”
