Well basically, it's men in thong underpants dancing. And they have eagle heads. And... OK, I don't know either, but I can't stop watching it. SLYT. NSFW, life, sanity.

The music is a remix of Tunak Tunak Tun by Daler Mehndi. Quite an earworm.

This is the long lost secret level in Katamari Damacy.

I am very confused. Is it from a game, or a mod, or did someone painstakingly animate this?

Does it have something to do with the Masons, or is it just an exceedingly odd homage to Karura?

If so, I cannot approve, being on team naga.

I have definitely seen these eagle-man-in-thong creatures dancing before. It's part of some bizarre meme, I'm sure of it. I just don't know what.

and I refuse to believe I've seen this in my dreams

I'm surprised this isn't a double, it's been around for a while. One of my favorite bits of unexplainable Internet flotsam.

Naju - I think this is the meme. But it doesn't really explain anything.

The Tunak Tunak Tun dance is also a meme.

I think it's confusing because it's animated. If it was live it would all make sense. Yeah.

This seems like it should be a related video. Sorta NSFW. You'd have no idea how hard it was to structure the right search for that.

I would love to play that game, as either (any of the) characters. It seemed like the truckbot needed some better weapons though. That box was less useful than a banana.

I agree with naju, I've absolutely seen this before. Kind of weird if I didn't see it here first.

this really isn't all that shocking or weird

hurglgl durrr armchair interpretation but my guess is eagle = america, musclebody look is steretyped as 'gay' in japan, ergo meaning is like "america is big and flashy and obtrusive, tries to look macho but comes off as gay" which fits with what ive heard about 2ch being nationalistic

You know, I've been lurking Metafilter for years, and only recently bit the five dollar bullet. The primary reason I keep coming back to the Blue is because of the clientele; I've enjoyed some incredibly passionate, intelligent, pertinent, and diversified discourse on this here web portal over the years. I have implored friends and family that if they only have ONE web forum at which to overcome their Luddite ways and join in the fray, it should be this one. And then I see this asinine headfuck of a thread. It's deplorable, unexplainable, and utterly ridiculous.

I couldn't be more proud. I love you guys.

Just when I think I've a grip on reality -- white-knuckled and shaky, but nonetheless still serviceable -- along comes a link like codacorolla's and I realize: I don't have the slightest fucking idea what's going on. I know nothing. Nada. People are rolling through the forest with laser babies in their pants and I'm Wile E. Coyote staring down at the abyss, about to plunge through miles of sky into a vast desert of whatthefuckery, with only a sad sandy little thump and cloud of angel dust to mark my passing.

How did you find that link, codacorolla? I need to know. I need to know it was just you and a laptop and some explicable search terms and not something directly implanted into your brain by the Illuminati in cahoots with the Bilderberg group, the CIA, John Lennon's former LSD-by-the-jar chemist, the discorporeal spirit of Anton LaVey, and/or OWN (Oprah's kicky new cable network). My legs are cycling through the air at about 150 mph right now, so a little assistance would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I originally saw both videos because they were linked somewhere else (most likely in a 'check out this funny youtube thread'). The search string that ended up bringing me back to the Muscle Roller video was something like "weird 3d animation 2 guys", which brought me to a question and answer site, and then to the video. Is there really a better way to describe that video for a search engine?

Well, I dunno about the rest of you, but from a mom's perspective; the knees together, tippy-toe dancing thing...that's a sure sign that your kid has to pee.

Why we have an animation of asphalt born, aquila headed Chippendale dancers who need to pee...this I cannot answer.

I'd quibble with the NSFW descriptor. This is much much too odd to be NSFW. I can't see someone looking over your shoulder and considering you dirty. They might consider you a bit mad for continuing to look at it...

God dammit, I was dealing with this earworm all day yesterday, after someone mentioned Buffilax's "Benny Lava" in another thread (the two kinda go hand in hand for me) Looks like it's gonna be another long day.
