Void Bladder Before Watching

Just for you, PeaceBangers, 3 minutes and 43 seconds of unintentionally hilarious musical hell from Finland...

Which one is Armi and which one is Danny?

What do I love most about this video?

Extreme Nordic blondeness
The wankiest dance moves since Olivia Newton John tried to keep up with John Travolta doing "The Hand Jive"
Tight satin pants+ open pirate shirt + huge medallion = take me now, Danny! (Or Armi!)
Pants-wettingly bad choreography
The fact that Armi (or Danny, whichever is the girl) can't even walk in rhythm down the center of the "stroll" line in the middle of this fabulous dance extravaganza
The boy-and-girl-waving-in-the-car-as-it-flies-into-the-sky finale stolen from "Grease"
and the fact that the whole ensemble appears to be eating trail mix in the final thrilling moments.




Many thanks to PlanetDan

It just so happens we had a Finn with us as we watched the video just now -- and she died of laughter and of shame! She said her brother sang the song in Finnish at his wedding. She also clarified that Danny is the guy and that Armi died last year, and that they were the Sonny and Cher of Finland. She had never seen this particular video before. I love the absolutely stationary camera best of all.

I just watched it for the third time and for some reason it was even more hysterical. I feel like I just had a hard work-out. Oh my god.
My new goal is to learn all the choreography -- especially that moment after Danny sings and then he throws his head back in a riotous Muppet-like exit move. I fell off my chair watching it this time.

Ow, my throat hurts from laughing!

I didn't read your post well before watching the video, so I kept saying, "What's up with the Grease rip-off." Of course, Danny and Sandy didn't ascend in a Trabant or whatever Warsaw Pact automotive horror they were in.

Scott, I am trying to write a sermon here! I can't do that when laughing hysterically at your comments!

Warsaw Pact Automotive Nightmare is a GREAT band name!

Oh my, that's as good as the Numa Numa dance video. I especially liked the instrumental break, where the bad dancers just run across the stage at random, doing odd things for no reason.

Then you might want to avoid this karaoke-esque remake of the video by a bunch of college students -- for all the world they look like they're at the Baptist Student Union; not the use of hymnal as a prop. I'm guessing they're procrastinating before finals.

It give me hope the generation after us isn't populated by humorless videogame-ravaged tools.

(You can skip the "bloopers reel" at the end of the clip.)

That is the cutest thing I have ever seen and the greatest cause for hope in the coming generation.

HOW CUTE! I want to take them all out to dinner! Where's the hymnal?
And does that boy know he's gay yet?
