YouTube gets vuvuzela button


Earlier today, YouTube added a vuvuzela button to some videos. Users can locate a little soccer ball icon next to the 360p video-enhancing button. The vuvuzela is the now-infamous horn ubiquitous at the World Cup games in South Africa. Some find the sound annoying, but FIFA decided to keep it anyway because it's a traditional instrument in South Africa.

But love it or hate it, the vuvuzela has gone viral, and it looks like it's here to stay, as witnessed by its inclusion on YouTube. Watch WalletPop's video below on how New Yorker's feel about the vuvuzela, then go to YouTube and check out the newest audio emoticon. Not surprisingly, the Twitter community is having a great laugh over this.
