“HEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA” is the unofficial title of an animated music video in which the fictional superhero character He-Man sings 4 Non Blondes’ 1992 hit rock single “What’s Up.” The video has been used to make hundreds of remixes, parodies and music video tributes. The music video was created by two animators by pairing footage of the titular protagonist from the 1980s American cartoon series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe with American alternative rock band 4 Non Blondes’ 1992 hit single “What’s Up.” The original copy of the video file was uploaded to the Something Awful forums under the title “Fabulous Secret Powers.”
Between 2006 and 2009, the video was discussed on TheSite.org forums, the BodyBuilding.com forums, MetaFilter, Regrettable Music, Buzzfeed and Comics Alliance. In January 2010, Slackcircus reposted the video to Vimeo where it saw an additional 257,000 views as of February 2013. In November of that year, a truncated two minute version with the intro, outro and dialogue removed was uploaded to YouTube as “HEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA” (shown below), becoming the most popular version of the video. As of February 2013, this upload has more than 30.8 million views. This version is often used as a bait and switch link, in a similar manner to the Rickroll.
