Music video featuring memo man goes viral

A music video featuring businessman Mansoor Ijaz, the central character in the memo scandal, and scantily clad female wrestlers has been creating a buzz among Pakistani users of social networking and micro-blogging websites.

The video for DJ and remixer Junior Jack’s 2007 hit song “Stupidisco” – which features Ijaz as a commentator at a female wrestling competition – was posted on Twitter late on Tuesday night. It was subsequently shared by Pakistani users at other social networking websites too.

The video for a song with a pulsating backbeat, which reached the number 20 slot in the UK singles charts, has Ijaz commenting on a wrestling match between two wrestlers . At one stage, he is heard saying: “Look at that, we’ve got some real tumbling going on here”. Ijaz laughs and describes the action at the match, saying, “ Double D’s got the take down, she’s on top. She’s the reigning world champion. Oh she’s giving it to her good now”.

As some users of Twitter raised questions about the authenticity of the video, one enterprising blogger even tracked down an even racier making-of video that showed Ijaz participating in the shoot for the music video.

Ijaz created a storm in Pakistan’s political circles and triggered a confrontation between the civilian government and the military after he made public what he claimed was a memo that had sought US help to stave off a possible coup after the killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad in May last year.
