Really irritating noise. I initially thought it was the residual electronic noise of TV guys blocking crowd noise from there broadcast or something like that. Never imagined that it is a real noise coming out of that instrument … Ban the damn thing!

the ubiquitous narrow instrument that’s making every contest in South Africa sound like a ferocious swarm of radioactive bees—or a Hollywood publicists’ luncheon
… It’s apparently irritating TV viewers … you bet it is!
Besides, who are we in the U.S. to complain about vuvuzelas? We gave the world Twitter and Ke$ha. – yea, you got that right! Don’t forget facebook.

  1. If we find it irritating, I cannot imagine how it feels to actually be watching the game in person. I originally thought it was a connection problem but then every single game had the sound of buzzing bees 🙂 The organizers should definitely ban the “horn”. We shouldn’t have players dreaming about it too.
