I'm not done laughing at the song and it's good to finally see some subtitles (just to compare with the original song)! Did these Asian singers that you show in your posts ever ask the permission to the original singer (in this case Ricky Martin) to "adapt" a given song?

Anyway, I wish you a happy New Year

Pretty sure they have permission or else they would be sued and CDs/DVDs would not be allowed to be sold.

However I am sure some might sneak through since artist still don't really know what going on in Asia.

William Hung would be proud.

@James:
The only difference is that William Hung bothered to sing the song in English. Well, maybe I should say that William Hung would be proud to see that he didn't distort the song's essence.

I don't think the song has much essence to distort!
