Hmmm

I don't understand this. Although the 'snaaaaaake' bit makes me think of David Byrne for some reason. It's quite funny, I just don't understand it.

Anybody?


UPDATE: Oh, okay, it's the World of Warcraft cover of this, although I still don't understand.

This is one of those 'dancing hamster' net meme things I only come across two years after everyone else is totally bored of them, isn't it?


UPDATE 2: okay, I hate it now. However it did remind me, via the comments below, of the alpaca song, which fell off my ipod around 2003, and had been sorely missed.

I've got loads of work to do, by the way.

Haven't got a clue, but my 3 year old liked the badgers. I suppose it must be someone's sense of humour.
????? Not mine! And quite annoying after about 1 minute.

It was just one of those random cartoons that Weebl over at 'Weebls Stuff' did a couple of years ago.

Have a gander round the site (http://www.weebls-stuff.com) - it's from the people who brought you the Anchor Dairy cows off the ad...

I prefer Weebl and Bob (the cartoon with the funny wee egg critters) to the other cartoons.

"NO! NO BEES!!"

I don't know what that was but I began to feel like I was hallucinating after a while, very, very strange...
In fact I feel quite bewildered now.

I'm a bit disappointed the badgers no longer reside at www.badgerbadgerbadger.com
Strange how something you used to think was ace is suddenly the most annoying thing in the world.

Anyway, you might like this, James.

There was a football "badger" a while ago... they were all wearing football shirts and shouted "Goal!" rather than "Snake", so I'd imagine that one'll start doing the rounds again soon.

For pure surrealism, though, you still can't beat the llama song:

I see your llama song and raise you StephenStephenHUGH... http://www.livejournal.com/userpic/39908690/4742522

The internet is ace. I also have loads of work.

smoo2 said...

Aah, you've raised the tone of the comments page now, Rose. Well done. House is the second best programme of the month.Such talented boys those two.
Why does the internet become such an interesting place when one has loads of work to do? House work in my case....

Squarah said...

I LOVE the Llama song...although you know you have problems when you sing it in your dreams!

Nothing can ever beat the 'When Biscuits Go Wrong' song
http://www.rathergood.com/biscuits/

I really should try and get some work done.

Talking about the strange conjunction of songs and hamsters, have you ever heard, or do you remember-
"Cognocscenti -vs- Intelligensia", by the Cuban Boys?
Terribly annoying- but that was a function of its catchiness, and thus its success.
Whatever happened to the Cuban Boys?

dizzi said...

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???

No, seriously, what??

I do not get those videos!

Spinsterella said...

I don't understand it either.

And I've got lots of work to do.

And a big frightening document called a 'tax return' or something.

Elfgirl said...

The "mushroom mushroom" and "snaaaake" bits sound a bit Mighty Boosh-ish to me for some reason. I don't understand it though.

Jennifer said...

M! 'They're Taking the Hobbits To Isengard' is so funny! Though the cruel disemboweling of the soundtrack had me in tears - It was so bloody difficult to play at Orchestra, to an extent where my fingers bled - I SO wish we'd just left the pianist to jump on a keyboard and be let loose on the 'Accompaniment' button...

baggiebird said...

Sorry that's just left me baffled !

entropy said...

Rathergoods biscuit song is good, but I prefer the spong monkeys. Spent far too much time on a trip to paris singing "we like tha MOOOON" while waiting at pedestrian crossings.

entropy said...

Anyway, isn't it about time for a Toy Fu song/mashup/weird thing?

Aimee said...

I have no work to do AND I understand it*. How much more smug can one feel?



*I am not at liberty to divulge my understandings however.

Badgers eat magic mushrooms and hallucinate snakes?

It reminded me of something I saw a while back. Ah yes. Here it is.

As mentioned above: Spongmonkeys.

Who also appeared in three ads for Quizno's Subs on USTV a couple of years ago.

entropy said...

Weren't the Switch/Maestro penguins in a UK ad (with a walrus voiced by Lily Savage) also from the minds behind the spong monkeys?
