YOLANDA BE COOL ANNOUNCE INTERNATIONAL PRODUCT RECALL OF NO. 1 HIT SONG “WE NO SPEAK AMERICANO”
In a press conference held today, Australian dance music duo Yolanda Be Cool, aka Sylvester Martinez and Johnson “Durango Slim” Peterson, announced an international product recall of their huge, triple-platinum hit single We No Speak Americano, which has secured the No. 1 spot in sixteen different countries, soundtracked three major movies, sold over one million digital copies in the US alone and is still heavily played on radio stations worldwide.
Talking at the conference to a stunned audience, Yolanda Be Cool cited the reasons behind the recall of the famously ubiquitous track: “After careful analysis, we have determined our number one hit song has been grossly overplayed and in some extreme cases misused. This is not what Yolanda Be Cool stands for… it was never meant to be like this.“
Users of We No Speak Americano are encouraged to destroy all digital and analogue recordings immediately to prevent further misuse and visit http://www.yolandarecall.com/ for a free replacement product by Yolanda Be Cool; a huge club track entitled Before Midnight, from their forthcoming album Ladies & Mentalmen. The free download version is remixed by DJ / producer Angger Dimas, widely known for his hit collaborations with Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke.
