worksafe, needs sound. mesmerizing.
This is the best inexplicable Scandinavian* flash meme thing since Hatten ar din, aka "hatt, baby".
one thing that kinda makes me sad about the existence of wikipedia is that mysteries like "Hatten ar Din" are quickly explained. I think I liked it better when we could only speculate what the hell "Hatt baby" was all about.
as wikipedia sez:
While the meme was well-known in Sweden, it was also extremely popular elsewhere, particularly in the English-speaking world, where the animation was also known as Hatt-baby. To those who did not understand Swedish, the page was completely incomprehensible, and the confluence of Middle Eastern music, Swedish subtitles, and inscrutable imagery entailed a bizarre (and, by most accounts, hilarious) experience.
yeah. So don't click on the wikipedia explanation link above unless you want your "Hatt baby" innocence tarnished. Cool guy holding a soda. Yes, that's what we like.
*yes, I'm well aware Finland isn't really part of Scandinavia. for the purposes of this post, though, it is.
