Turkish rocker Teoman released a new music video on the web, “ruhun sarışın”. Because it may be labeled as obscene, producers decided to make it web-only according to Hürriyet. These two versions of the video can also be found in Teoman’s official site.

Turkey’s much-derided super heroes make Internet comeback

With their plush monsters, tin robots and space heroes wielding plywood swords, Turkish B-movies dating back decades ago have found a new audience on the web, seduced by naivety and technical failure in the extreme.

The most-derided examples of the genre have attracted hundreds of thousands on video-sharing sites like YouTube to win global fame for the bizarre Turkish versions of Superman, Spiderman, Star Wars and Tarzan, produced mostly between 1965 and 1985.

For Regis Brochier, a French specialist on B-movies, Turkey has offered the world a whole new genre — “very naive and absolutely uninhibited” — with a careless attitude to technical challenge, weak continuity, aberrant sound-mixing and a complete disregard of intellectual property.
