Net Flotsam
 
Freaks also need to be divided into two categories, the really scary freaks and the just sorta cute & cuddly freaks.
-- Lisa Scovel

 

It's Pee-Wee Herman! A singing airplane! George W. Bush! A dangerous pace-maker! The internet is buzzing over an incongruous Shockwave video sung entirely in Japanese...

Several minutes into the mind-tingling stream of non-sequitors, the wacky male singer is joined by a choir of Japanese youth, and during their third pass at the chorus, a bouncing ball guides us through the lyrics. C'mon now, everybody, sing along!

TV says donuts are hi in fat
Kazoo
Found a hobo in my room

It's Princess Leia
The yodel of life
Give me my sweater back
or I'll play the guitar

It's the internet's fastest-growing phenomenon. Happy tuneful songs sung in languages we don't understand -- but accompanied by comically unpredictible animation. The last web chart-topper was "Hatt-baby! La la la la la!", but today's find turned up at Animutation Central. (Thanks to our friends at Honan.net for discovering the link.)

So apparently the phenomenon is called "Animutation". You can tell yourself that the baffling videos are a subtle, cheerful reminder that the internet really is a global community, more diverse than you could ever possibly imagine. Then stop thinking so hard, and sing along with the wacky lyrics that are sweeping the nation.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
