It was written by German composer Christian Schneider and released by its label Gummybear International. The song was first released in Hungary, where it spent eight months as number 1 atop the ringtones chart. Subsequently it became global as an Internet meme , in large part due to its corresponding videos on YouTube and MySpace.
Several versions have been released in many languages. The song was originally released in German  and English. Videos corresponding to at least 25 languages are currently uploaded featuring the titular character in orange underwear bouncing and breakdancing. Gummy bear , the highly stylized character, is naked except for orange Y-front briefs and sneakers. Gummy bear also seems to be bitten with a small portion of the upper left ear missing.
The music video has over 2 billion views on YouTube as of May , making it one of the top 50 most viewed videos on the site.
