Techopedia explains Numa Numa Dance

Through the original Numa Numa Dance video and other follow-up videos Brolsma created, he came to be known as the “The Numa Numa Guy,” which led to ongoing appearances on TV and other media. The phrase "Numa Numa" used in the song’s name, meaning "you don't want, don't want to take me," was taken from a portion of the song’s Romanian lyrics.
