“Mi pan zhu zhu zhu zhu”: the song of bees from the Russian ad for Miel Pops flakes a decade ago became a meme in the West

Due to a wrong translation, the foreigners decided that the track was singing about “my bread”. It is not possible to convince them.

A 10-year-old Russian ad for Miel Pops honey balls has unexpectedly gained popularity on TikTok. Due to the incorrect translation of the jingle from Russian into Spanish, most of the users decided that the song was about bread – and began to confess their love to the rolls. Attempts by Russian speakers to explain what was the matter did not lead to anything.

An ad with the song of dancing bees was launched in Russia in 2010 – this is the Russian version of the original French jingle, which was recorded in 2006. The text practically did not change during translation: only the sounds “bz-bz-bz” were replaced by “zhu-zhu-zhu”, and “hrum-hrum-hrum” – by “yum-yum-yum.”

For ten years, almost no one remembered the video – only at the beginning of 2020 a ten-hour version appeared . On June 1, a Russian-speaking user isterrrrika said in a tiktok that she had changed her discord nickname to “milpops bee”. On the background, she put a cover of a Russian jingle, the origin of which remains unknown.

The song was noticed by the Spanish-speaking user of the social network awa_de_horchata_uwu – on July 14, he used the track in a video with a dancing llama. Tiktoker tried to transliterate the Russian text into Spanish. Instead of “Miel Pops” he heard “Mi Pan” (translated from Spanish – “my bread”), and instead of “Oh, how delicious” – “Yakakus” (the word does not mean anything). The video spread widely on TikTok, gaining 9 million likes.

Soon the song was used by other Tiktokers. They took the interpretation of the text literally and decided that the track was really about bread, so they began to dance with loaves and confess their love to the rolls.

To others, the song seemed so sticky that they could not stop watching tiktoki with it and constantly hum.

Abstract memes have also appeared – in about the same spirit as the video with a dancing llama.

And singer and producer Charlie Puth even recorded a cover of “Mi Pan”.

Russian-speaking users began to explain in the comments to foreigners that the song was not really about bread. And the author of the original tiktok even changed the name of the sound to the text “This song is not about bread! Stop it! Mi Pan is Miel Pops. ” Despite the fact that some English-speaking users are interested in the origin of the track, most no longer care about the original meaning of the song – they keep humming about “my bread”.
