    I guess it is called cultural acceptance.... Annoying after a while, but thats only because there are always about 10,000 people blowing them at any one time. Perhaps they should have thought twice before giving 50,000 people horns to blow in a round stadium that will echo during an international sporting event, but oh well.... I guess it is something special about the South Africa World Cup! I say embrace it.... Elephants are watching.

    This is complete bullshit. Instead of having some awesome african chants and drums, we got this shitty plastic horn? We can't even hear the people singing.

    Seriously, people need to stop that. it's completely destroying the ambiance.

    In b4 someone says "LOL U RACIST U DONT RESPECT AFRICA AND OUR HISTORY", if your history is just pissing off people by using plastic horns, you've clearly got a problem.
  • Erik Aleksander Aas
    @Aurelien,
    The ancestor of the vuvuzela is said to be the kudu horn - ixilongo in isiXhosa, mhalamhala in Tshivenda - blown to summon African villagers to meetings. Later versions were made of tin. Plastic is used cause we don't kill our animals merely for horns. If you knew a little about African culture you'd know that Africa is not all about chants and drums!

    A similar instrument (known as corneta in Brazil and other Latin American countries) is used by football fans in South America.

    Take a look at who blows the "plastic horns" next time you watch the games. 90% are foreign fans. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean everyone shares your view. This is unique to Southern African soccer. Do you think everyone likes your stupid chants and songs, yet we accept and embrace it.
    Always complaining when something is different. China this China that, Africa this, Africa that. After all, isn't the world cup primarily about football? If you want to hear singing, be nice to Pete - rumor has it he's giving away free Usher tickets.

    Why do you have to bring race into this? You are clearly the one with the problem.

    And just for kicks, piss off you French frog!

    I think the vuvuzelas are awesome. It's like a theme noise for the whole event. Walking around Beijing social areas at night, you can hear them emanating from the bars playing the World Cup, which creates a certain energetic ambiance. The South Africans are making a sound the entire world is hearing all at once, broadcast to every street corner on earth. I like the spirit of it.

    Then again, I'm an American and I don't give a flying shit about soccer.

    If you guys can't understand that a giant swarm of bees-like sound is annoying as fuck and destroy the ambiance instead of create one, well, nothing. You obviously never went to a real football match.

    Mainly the foreigners doing it? Well, when there's only like 10 000 foreigners in the stadium and more than 30 000 S. Africans doing it, I'm not sure of your "90% of the foreigner do it". It'd need a hell lot more of people to have this nonstop sound.

    The coaches, players and so many fans are complaining about it, because people start playing it from 6 in the morning and they can't sleep, or talk about the in-game strategy. You need to stop this HERP A DERP LOOK AT ME IM PLAYING A HORN LOL SO FUNNEY IT MAKES SOUND LOL XD!!!

    You guys are making the worst World cup in History.
    Well, at least you wont have it anymore because everybody will know what will happen if we give it to you once again. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    When u see people dancing and singing on the screen, and all you hear is : BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ, it's kinda sad.

    [My favorite part of the article -- after discussing how a lot of the complaints are somewhat mild, it had this paragraph:

    "In France, there's big, big noise about it. Viewers are completely mad by it," said Philippe Kaufmann, head of production for sport for TF1. "It's very difficult to hear this permanent noise."

    Hahaha! The French really are whiny bastards, aren't they? Complaining more than anyone else in the world about these silly horns. For god's sake France, just relax.]

    I get so amazed by how people's thinking gets shallow all day. Each country has its culture and way of behaviour. If you are a mere foreigner, you either do with the culture or leave. FIFA was not foolish to allow VUVUZELAS in the stadiums. It is actually useless to debate that here because you can never stop the VUVUZELAS down there. Just hung if you hate them. It is poor technology that the commentators can not filter background noise. Actually many did not want it to be in Africa now they feel envious.

    I wouldn`t mind the noise if it was the local Premier African league. But this is a world event, and hundreds of millions is watching this in all over the world. Now I don`t know how this sounds like in the stadium, but the TV broadcastings are ruined.

    And it`s so much more singing and dancing and instruments from the African culture that I rather see and -hear- than this stupid plastic trumpets.

    Hahahha, i just did not know that many people do not watch soccer on screen but just listen to the radios. If you really watch soccer, can't you make your own judgement about what you see? The commentators are humans like you. They are not gods that they always make the best analysis of what happens. Just watch and make your own analysis of the match. Mexico is remembered for the wave, South Africa will be remembered for its VUVUZELA. And i have just read that the Brazilians intend to have them even worse than we hear now. GO VUVUZELA . It might suck, but have nothing to do. Just get to your own house andf play your own soccer without VUVUZELA. learn to make your own conclusions about the matches and do not relay on the commentators.

    The BBC are considering a "red button service" to enable television viewers to drown out the noise from vuvuzelas at World Cup 2010 after receiving more than 500 complaints.

    Debate has raged about the plastic horns since the tournament began. A minority of viewers have argued the sound from the traditional instrument is drowning out commentary and distracted them during matches.

    With 545 complaints received, the broadcaster has stated it is looking in to alternatives to appease people who are upset with the current service. One such option is to strip away much of the atmosphere from the ground and leave just the pundits to talk.

    A BBC spokeswoman said: "Using the red button service is only one of the options that we're considering. A decision will be made later in the week."

    honestly that sound also annoys me... especially used by a bunch of asshole who have no understanding or consideration for courtesy - but I paused for thoughts I was in propaganda 2 nights ago, the songs (or best described as persistent noise at its loudest) almost exploded my ears... that's the place "civilised people" don't mind buying drinks to stay within... Ass... So?

    If you never bought a ticket or moved all the way to SA motivated by your love for football, you have no right to complain. More so, you have the right to shut-up and watch the screen like everyone else.

    Happy Dragon Boat Fest!

    If one is a lifelong football fan who feels as if their enjoyment of the Games is being hindered by these unsophisticated, lowbrow forms of sonic torture, then they have every right to bitch, complain and let their opinion be heard.

    Football and the World Cup are international. They are institutions. You don't ask fans to "sit this one out" and stop complaining until, well, when? Until they get to host the Games?

    Get real. And welcome to the international community where discussions and debates are not simply ended with "go fuck yourself" or "go play your own soccer."

    Ignorant.

    I recognize the rich history behind the vuvuzela, but its spawn -- this plastic object that does not vary in pitch, requires no skill to play and sounds like an insect swarm -- should be universally reviled and not blindly defended by nationalists with their inchoate mumblings.

It had all the top scores and was humiliated by Senegal of all countries in their first match. They ended up loosing all games without even scoring a goal. Pray this fate does not end up with Spain.

    The best way is to get used to them or mute the TV, otherwise the anger will not help now. Just refer to this article,

    I am sure they have heard our voices and start considering to sell quieter Vuvuzelas, one thing is sure though, they are not going to ban them anytime soon, I am quite certain that Fifa will not ban the vuvuzelas as it was under their own commendation that they were marketed for the WC in the first place. They are selling like crazy in SA not just to South Africans but to all nationalities in attendance. (even Yankee fans..haha)

    Man, France cheated remember. God pays. But to be sure, the cup is going Latin America. Look at Uruguay, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, all doing well so far. Europe, France, Spain is also fumbling, England, Italy has not been at its best, German and Netherlands a ray of hope, but the Dutch have no luck in the cup always. Africa, well, we just enjoy VUVUZELA, we have not had any concentration on playing like we have on blowing the VUVUZELA. Asia, it will take them time just like Africa. USA, i do not think so.

    ikin of like the vuvuzelas, it doesn't bother that much and it gives more punch in this boring world cup, people that don't like it are unsatisfied people that need some thinghs to complain about, if it wasn't this it would be something alse.

    anyway the day we will all be united and we will agree on everythings will be a miracle or maybe a day we will need to worried about so....

    It's like something out of "Idiocracy."
  • Erik Aleksander Aas
    Pete, some friends of mine just developed a plugin that filters out the "droning" vuvuzela. Problem solved.

    Maybe your buddies can develop a plugin that filters us out, too.

    vuvuzelas is not about national pride, and if you want to talk about it u should winning about the players not singing enough with the public while the national hymne is playing
  • Fredrik Emil Kiran
    Does VUVUZELA bring good luck to African teams?
  • Petter Meisfjordskar
    well, the players concentrate on the sound and finally the African teams are getting laid.
  • Jenelyn Tambago
    well, i don't know if you noticed...but slowly they are stopping using the F ing things.
    Don't know if its because most african teams are going home or because everyone got sick of it. I hope this goes on. =P

    HA, I read one news(joke) this morning, the primary school teacher requested her students to write a article about WORLD CUP within 800 words limited. One of them is writing 800 of 嗡..hahaha

    老师要求小学生用800字写作文,作文题目:我眼中的世界杯,有一个同学这样写道:我眼中的世界杯,嗡嗡嗡。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。
  • Petter Meisfjordskar
    The VUVUZELA is to stay even after WC. I am sure soon the Premier League will have them too and many other leagues. It is a pity that it is associated with national pride than soccer fanaticism. BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
  • Erik Aleksander Aas

    Sick of it??? Waeeeeeeeeva! We just getting started. Time to bring out the big gun!!








  • Petter Meisfjordskar
