About

Super Timor is a bug-spray product sold and produced by SOFACO.
The music video, filmed and directed in 1986 by Stephen Chatiliez gained lots of popularity, mainly in France and Canada in both the early-to-mid 2000s and late 80’s due to its catchy song and humorous video.

The video features several men clapping in their chairs to try and kill mosquitoes. They frustratingly start slapping parts of their body until a strange man with a mustache enters, singing a song about bug-spray named “Super Timor”. They then start clapping (even though the flies are dead) in a steady beat.

Origin

The video is a bugs-pray ad for a bugspray named “Super Timor”. It was featured on TV channels, the names of which are unknown at this point in time, but gained most of its popularity on the web.

Spread

The video is not very popular in the USA and many other countries, but was and is one of the biggest trends on the French web. It was popular for a while until the meme died down before being featured again (as a joke) in a Ten For The Win as part of Entry no. 7.

The video was mainly shared both by word and on several social networking sites. Most of the attention, as previously mentioned, came from French and Canada.

Notable Examples

Several parodies and remixes are on YouTube.

The show was humorously listed as one of the “Top Ten Most Difficult Games” on a Machinima show named TFTW.

It is also Steve’s ringtone on TFTW whenever he is called by Larson.

Song Lyrics

Here are the lyrics with the English meanings placed in (brackets).
Aïe !
(Ouch!)
Ne tuez plus les moustiques avec des claques sur vos joues.
(Don’t kill mosquitos by slapping your cheeks anymore!)
Aïe!
(Ouch!)
Des claques sur vos genous.
(Or by slaps on your knees)
Ouille! Ouille! Ouille
(Ouch!)
Des claques sur vos bras.
(Even slaps on your arms!)
Aïe!
(Ouch!)
Super Timor est là.
(Super Timor is here.)

Super Timor est encore plus fort,
(Super Timor is now more powerful)
avec sa nouvelle formule.
(with its new formula.)
Super Timor !
(Super Timor!)
Le temps de sentir l’odeur de super Timor,
(In the time it takes for the odor of Super Timor to reach them,)
Les insectes sont déjà morts.
(All the bugs are already dead!)
Super Timor!
(Super Timor!)

Super Timor avec sa nouvelle formule,
(Super Timor with its new formula,)
vraiment, vraiment plus fort.
(Is much, much more powerful!)
Super Timor Super Timor!
(Super Timor! Super Timor!)

Le numéro un.
(The number one.)
