Barbados Rocks!

A video on You Tube generating almost a thousand comments is “Barbados Rocks” by GIR2007 who vacationed here earlier this year. I have to admit it’s pretty cool

GIR2007’s comments and the lyrics are:


“A chilled out story about my holiday in Barbados. When I got there, I knew I had to make a video about it, so that you YouTubers could experience it with me. No stop motion this time I’m afraid, but ‘the furries’ will be back 🙂 Please leave me a comment and rate.”

The video has been viewed more than115,000 times and has generated at least 3 other versions by other people including a honeymoon slide show (get your mind out of the gutter 😀 ) and a classical piano version. Maybe someone should tell the tourist board about this one!
