The craze was started by DJ Steve Porter who posted an electro-themed "Slap Chop Rap" in April. It proved so popular he created a downloadable kit of his remix to allow others to continue remixing Shlomi to their hearts' content.
So far, the challenge has seen some passable techno and dance-themed reduxes, along with a comic heavy metal version using real instruments (as opposed to samples). Porter talks about the remixes here. What follows (below) is the best of the Shlomi oevre.
It all raises a question for Shlomi's next commercial: Will he write a script that contains enough rhymes and hooks to keep his fans busy on YouTube?
