Aicha Kid Suicide Video
image One of the many random viral videos that floats around the internet is this 'Aicha Kid Video' that shows a skinny teenager singing and dancing to the song 'Aicha'. But before you click on the link to see the video, first read about the urban legend that accompanies the video, because I think it makes the video itself much more interesting. According to the UL, there's an 'uncut' version of this video, and in this uncut version... well, this poster from ebaumsworld summarizes it better than I could:

it is hard to get the unedited one, most of them stop after he is dancing. In the full version after he dances, he gets a knife out from under his minnie mouse comforter and slits his throat. He bleeds out all over his adidas sweatshirt and falls on the floor. The camera keeps taping for another 5 minutes until the tape runs out. I think you can get the full version on www.rotten.com. Ya it is sad.

So does this uncut suicide kid video actually exist? I don't think so. At least, if it does I can't find it anywhere. Though in a variant of the UL, the non-existence of the extended video is explained away by the fact that the skinny kid's parents supposedly filed a lawsuit to get it removed from the internet. If the video does exist I'm sure that I'll hear about it eventually, but I'd bet good money on it just being a stupid rumor.

....All I know about it is that he did and my friend had to fly over there to go to his funeral...you want me to go up to my friend to ask her for some way to prove that her best friend killed himself?....Because I don't think I'm about to do that

So, your friend went from living down the road from him to being his best friend? All in the space of two posts?

And yes. Prove what you say or stop saying it.

Simple as that.

"No I don't think he filmed it but he did commit suicide" - Vampirella

"And, there was neevr any "uncut" version." - Vampirella

Quite the non-linear argument you've got going there, when someone puts all your posts together.

First you tell us what you "think" happened.
Then when nobody believes you, you come back and say you friend knew him, and lived down the street.
Then, when I don't believe THAT, you pull a quick cop-out and say he was her "best friend" and you don't want to put her through talking about it.

Now, if any of what you're saying is true, why did you have to put it all in separate posts? Posting all of the info at once would be the thing to do.

The way you've done it just shows that you're making it up as you go.

If you look at his MSN profile it says 17 years old. The time he made the video he was way younger than 17 so it proves that he is still living because he is still aging. What more do you need to prove that he is still alive?

Okay, look....the kid is dead...so you have something against the fact that I never said that my friend was his best friend? I just said at first that I don't think he made a video of him killing himself and then I got the nerve to ask my friend about it...which proved me right, he didn't video tape it, and he is dead....so if you have any more issues with that, well, I really don't give a shit..This is my two cents, which leaves me richer than you

whatever, whata coincidence. Your friend wouldn't know him. There is no uncut video, apart from one where he DOES die at the end, but by a wardbrobe dropping on him, as a joke that someone has made. However, he does not kill himself. That is finale.
Posted by Laura  on  Sun Apr 10, 2005  at  04:40 PM
actually one of my best friends saw the whole uncut video and he wasn't aware of it. however, i never wanted to see it myself.

the song is Aicha and i dont know who sings it. I didn't know the english version. I heard the french one from Khaled very often on the radio

''aicha, aicha

think about it, the video is edited, it has graphics and different taks. how could this kid edit and put music on the tape and everything if he kills himself at the end? And who would do it for him? It's funny, not anything like a suicide video. i think it's a joke, don't buy it
Posted by Porter  on  Sat Apr 16, 2005  at  06:54 PM
he didnt kill himself h goes to the skool along the road from mine so stop talkin pure pish

MSN would have taken down the profile due to inactivity wouldn't they? It's linked to a hotmail account which, after 30 days, become in-active.

So my thought is that he isn't dead.
Posted by Justice  on  Tue Apr 19, 2005  at  07:55 AM
ok well i think that that one ladies post makes sense and even tho its probably not true that he was her friends best friend. it makes the editing comments make sense and it explains that he did in fact commit suicide... but my friend said he actaully saw the uncut verison... i dont noe if i can belive him now though so im just really confused
question

Yeah yeah, these are all just posts and no one can really show good proof of anything, but you'll just have to take my word on this one. Vampy is telling the truth and no one else has the right to say otherwise because I'm backing him or her up (sry for the lack of gender). This "GellieMan" is actually a kid who went to Western Technical High School in Toronto, Ontario, (where I live) in Canada. This kid made a sent this video to this girl, who in turn, sent it to all of her friends and it made it's way, inevitably, onto Ebaums. There is no damn suicide shit at the end, thats just a cruel nasty joke. The kid DID indeed kill himself after the whole video went around his school and he became infamous for his dance moves and such. The kid is from my city and he died a few years or something ago, I'm not sure. But this all said, if you don't wish to believe me, don't. I'm just giving you the true story, whether you take it for that or not, is your decision.

come on you have to be kidding me. Did the Numa Numa Dance guy kill himself after his video. I think not! this is just another stupid rumor about a web video you cant believe it. And why would anyone leave a knife under thier mouse pad.
Posted by jack  on  Mon May 09, 2005  at  05:52 PM
Hey, Canada? I though the guy was from Belgium...looks that way from his website anyway...up there ^^^ and down here >>> http://www.vvzkapelle.be/jelleacteur/index.htm Plus .the website looks pretty recent, yet empty, which, to me, means he's alive, at least he was up until a under a month ago, for that quality of website u'd need to pay domain charges, right? and thats monthly, if he died, the charges would stop and that website would go down. Looks to me like Gellieman lives, for the time being anyway. One day, he might strike again, wooohhahhhhh!

Fuck you, Brandon. He's mine. He's so sexy and erotic. I would do anything just to be with him for one night, to be his little Aicha. I don't care if he's dead. I'd fuck him, anyway. If you know him or have the uncut video or know if he'll let me suck him off or rape me or know his address or know where his grave is IM me on AIM at kickpigs. I deeply want him in my asshole.

I don't see how it could even be true because the footage is edited together...so who would have taken his suicide video and added the fades and "scene" cuts? It would have to be a friend or family and I really don't think anyone would do that...
Posted by beth  on  Tue May 31, 2005  at  01:26 PM
This is pathetic. Ok, this kid obviously thought he was going to be the next Napoleon Dynamite, whatever, it was funny, who cares? Does it even make sense that for anything other than a joke he would film it in front of Mikey Mouse sheets!? Come on, oh yeah and for all these people who have "seen" this unedited version. Just give a link, I dare you.
