Swedish Lebanese drinking song
The singer is from Lebanon, and a Swede made up some Swedish lyrics to go along (he doesn't know what the guy is really singing about). The Swedish song is about drinking and hats. You can see the story and translation at the site (click on "Explanation in English").

I remember when "Hatten ar din" was all the rage back on the stupid internet video circuit back in like 1999/2000 or so. Thanks for the flashback.
I guess I didn't catch on the rage back then--I just saw it on a message board.
