FORGET Rebecca Black there is a new YouTube sensation. For Malaysia at least, and she is called Cikgu Syida.

The real-life primary school teacher from Bota, Perak, has attracted more than a million hits on the video sharing website with her wacky, mimed music videos.

From Shakira's World Cup theme song Waka Waka (This Time For Africa) to local hit Kalau Berpacaran by Sohaimi Meor Hassan and Anna Raffali and Arabic pop smash For The Rest Of My Life by Palestinian-born Swedish R&B singer Maher Zain, some 40 popular songs have gotten the Cikgu Syida treatment of weird costumes, funny dance moves and silly facial expressions.

True, there are more than a few music videos of the sad-wannabe-in-the-bedroom variety that will make you cringe but the more you watch, the more impressed you will get with the irreverence and sense of freedom that Cikgu Syida infuses in them.

What started out as a fun hobby and outlet for letting off steam has become a teaching aid for the 38-year-old English teacher, who sees her videos as an effective motivational tool for her students.
