Can't watch this in class, but wanted to pop in to say "Ricardo Autobahn" is a hilarious name and conjures up exactly the sort of Karate Kid villain-meets-"Hey funboys, get a room!" sleaze that you must avoid losing the race and the girl to at all costs.

That was fun. :)

Let's see how fast YouTube removes the video, citing copyright infringement.

The artist's website.

Wish I could make a list of everything being shown. I can identify some of the more obvious clips, (Knight Rider, The Simpsons, Ghostbusters, etc.,) but not enough of 'em to make the effort worthwhile.

That was lots of fun, but let's start the inevitable "What, no X?" list.

What, no Withnail & I?

Some kind of defect in the associative mind.

He autotuned Freaks. That's a special kind of genius right there. I give it a thumbs up but I don't want to watch it again.

Seriously, I'm watching this on a loop now, it's like getting American Culture in pill form.

I knew I got out of bed for a reason today, and that reason was to see this video.

Wheres me washboard? I'll get me coat.

Fast Show clips made it extra special. Would love to see more crap like this if anyone has any.

I loved it even before I saw Shaun Micallef in there.

Seems like there's going to be a clip listing on his myspace page before long... the're keeping it off youtube to help prevent it being taken down

George from Rainbow did it for me... like only 5% of the internet is going to recognize that
