A few weeks ago First Brigadier Norman Kamaru was a member of the Mobile Brigade who served in Gorontalo. Nothing more than that, his name is barely audible, even to around Gorontalo even less recognizable. However, today the conditions have changed 180 degrees. Norman is like a celebrity on board. His face appeared on television, print and online.

This happens because the "rebellion" by Norman. Systematic and planned, Norman seeks through the boundaries, to fend off rigidity and stiffness. With his fondness for the style, dancing, and songs of Shahrukh Khan, one of whom "Chaiyya Chaiyya", Norman began recording the action by using a friend's HP camera. Norman who has 65 pieces of VCDs Indian songs are indeed since primary school, loved the rhythm of India.

Action Norman originally from Mobile to Mobile circulated among police in Gorontalo. But his style was unexpectedly through Youtube. Until about 17:30, on Friday, March 8, 2011, Norman video has been downloaded 1,124,748 times. While the original version of Shahrukh Khan and Malaika Arora newly downloaded by 113,016 times. Incredibly, Norman's popularity on Youtube with "Chaiyya Chaiyya" was far more than Shahrukh Khan.

Regardless of the pros and cons of Norman's action, best viewed from the positive side. Because effort and ability, the name of Norman skyrocketed, at the national level, even global. In fact, the police chief was deliberately bring him to Jakarta, as well as officials like the governor of Gorontalo and so forth. Not to forget the national television stations were competing to display the action of Norman, ranging from news programs, talk shows, music, and so forth. It is clear, but enjoy the aspect of popularity, Norman was going to outsourced materials, perhaps even contract with music producer or film.

Another positive side of Norman is the impact of action for police agencies to be more impressed humanist. Thus, Norman's actions have an impact on positive imagery for hundreds of thousands of police friends. Name of entity where Norman duty, namely Brimob, as well as enlightened. Because Norman served in Gorontalo, Gorontalo's name more lifted to the surface. Now more and more people are looking for information, where and what is Gorontalo.

Norman Action with "Chaiyya Chaiyya" was so entertaining more than 100 million people in Indonesia. People who witnessed the action on the Youtube site already exceeds 1 million people, because every day increases fantastic to be expected would exceed the total population of Gorontalo Province (about 1 million inhabitants). Name of Gorontalo was lifted. Norman seems to be a new icon of Gorontalo. If now we use the keyword "Gorontalo" in the Google search engine, then the top is a First Brigadier Norman Kamaru information.

Yes, that's one of the euphoria of the development of information technology, someone who was "a nobody" to someone who is "known to anyone". So fantastic, Norman's popularity also exceeds Shahrukh Khan, an artist who became his idol.
