HMAS Toowoomba crew YouTube sensation

TOOWOOMBA is a great place to call home - whether you live on land or sea.

The crew from HMAS Toowoomba has illustrated that and become a YouTube sensation in the process with its remake of Duck Sauce's top-10 single Barbra Streisand attracting more than 100,000 hits on the site in just two months.

The video features the ship's crew dancing and singing in time to the music in their various roles on the ship. The popular video has been tagged a "like" by 514 YouTube users for only 18 dislikes.

The posting of music video remakes is something that has become popular in armed forces all over the world with many soldiers, including United States Marines and British Army troops, making them during their free time while on deployment.

The crew from HMAS Toowoomba has also completed its follow up to Barbra Streisand, releasing a remake to the Kenny Loggins track Danger Zone which features on the Top Gun movie's soundtrack.

Danger Zone gives users a behind the scenes look into the ship's last six-month operational deployment.

Both videos have been well received.

"Well done boys and girls. You have to do something to stop you going stir crazy," one user wrote.
