Basshunter Releases "Vi sitter i Ventrilo och spelar DotA", The Internet Eats It Up
"Vi sitter i Ventrilo och spelar DotA" (English "We're sitting in Ventrilo, playing DotA" and in some countries shortened to "DotA") is a song by Swedish dance DJ Basshunter.
The lyrics, in Swedish, are about using the voice chat program Ventrilo while playing the Warcraft III Custom Map Defense of the Ancients. The song incorporates samples from the game. It was released as the second single from Basshunter's third album LOL . The melody for DotA is a remixed version of "Daddy DJ."
The accompanying video shows Basshunter performing the song in front of a large crowd. One of the listeners holds a sign saying "Vadå båt?" (Whaddaya mean boat?), referring to some listeners' initial confusion of the Swedish lyrics in Boten Anna, mistaking the word "boten" (the bot) for "båten" (the boat).
The video starts out with Basshunter's mother (who is actually his mother in real life) opening a door where it reveals that he and his friends are playing DotA. She tells him that he's playing too much DotA when he starts singing. The video continues on showing him playing DotA and later singing at a gamehall live. The gamehall was shot during Dreamhack, the world's largest LAN party event. At the end of the video, he and all his friends fall asleep in his room. Some scenes are taken from Boten Anna.
