Laugh off



Laugh riot Wilbur Sargunaraj

If you've paid any attention at all to your friends' Facebook updates recently, chances are that you've already been introduced to Wilbur Sargunaraj.

Billed as India's biggest YouTube sensation, the man from Madurai has racked up nearly 3.1 million views for his unique music and instructional videos. And he comes with the added promise of “Quality, First Class, Sargunaraj Trademark”.

What his videos lack in production sheen, they make up for in unabashed entertainment. He's been seen singing to “Mummy, Daddy” that he wants “the Love Marriage”, expounding the virtues of “Chicken 65”, and donning a Chennai Super Kings jersey to explain the rules of cricket, in rhyme, no less.

All dressed in his neatly pressed white shirts, black trousers and tie, and trademark dark sunglasses.

Sargunaraj has also been touring the world with an aim of “making the common man extra-ordinary”. His instructional videos are meant to increase your “Cultural Intelligence”. Who else will teach you how to order a burger at a drive through in a foreign land?

Sargunaraj is now in Bangalore, as part of his first India tour, to coincide with the launch of his second album, “Simple Superstar”.

Today at 6.30 p.m., Opus, Palace Road, plays host as he sings and makes everyone else dance to his greatest and latest tunes. Tickets (Rs. 500, inclusive of cover) available at the venue or call 9880680317.
