Chennai. In an extremely momentous occasion for the IPL, “Dil Jumping Jepang” has been chosen as the anthem for the upcoming FIFA World cup in Brazil, 2014.
FIFA had been scouting for new artists to compose the theme song for the World Cup to rival “Wavin Flag” and “Waka Waka” from the 2010 edition. They tried many artists including Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black, but it was “Jumping Jepang” that caught their attention, and the decision was instantaneous and unanimous.
Mr. Zeb Flatter, President of FIFA, described his love for the IPL song as “love at first sight and sound”.
“I was randomly surfing TV channels when I happened to come across this plump lady dressed in black, teaching a young guy of around 25 years a few steps. I turned on the volume, and was treated to an amazing symphony. The song along with the dance has to be the best Sporting Anthem that I have ever come across,” Flatter came up with his flattering reviews of the song.
The proposal by Mr. Flatter was set into motion among the Board of Members of FIFA, and was passed unanimously. The IPL committee has also granted the rights for the same.
Rajiv Shukla, the Chairman of the IPL, was a happy man. “We always knew Jumping Jepang had the capability to go global. India is on its course to become a superpower,” exclaimed Mr. Shukla.
Mr. Shukla has reportedly asked Shashi Tharoor to tweet the same, but sources tell Faking News that Mr. Tharoor is not too comfortable tweeting about IPL as he had a bad experience earlier.
On being asked for his views, Ravi Shastri said, “This is just what the doctor ordered for the IPL. We flashed and flashed hard, and FIFA accepted it gleefully. It was always on the cards. The news came to us like a tracer bullet and we now have the full monty. But be rest assured, it ain’t over before the fat lady sings.”
Outside India, Brazillian footballer Ronaldinho also seemed quite enthusiastic. “2010 was about Vuvuzelas, 2014 will be about Jumping Jepang,” he claimed.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that the decision by FIFA and IPL could also affect EPL (English Premier League). There are rumors doing the round that Sir Alex Ferguson could come back from retirement to make sure that Manchester United becomes the best team to dance to the tunes of Jumping Jepang.
Back home, trying to cash on his sister’s recognition, Sajid Khan has now raised a request with FIFA to release Himmatwala in all FIFA registered countries. Mr. Flatter was watching the movie, only the 47th person to do so and the 1st one to brave it alone, till reports last came in.
