Tuesday Althing: Techno Viking goes Spartan
I remember the first time I saw the Techno Viking video that went viral some time back. I remember initially thinking the video might be a neo Nazi video response to disco and the Bee Gees and John Travolta’s famous walk. But after a few more viewings and a little research I decided the video was actually pretty benign and, if anything, a monument to bizarreness and solid proof that in fact (most) white people can’t dance.
Almost 8 million views later (um, not by me — I’m not THAT intrigued by Techno Viking. Or by that strap around his leg. WTF?) and an evolving Internet mythology about the man — who apparently can now kick ass better than Chuck Norris or Bruce Lee — which includes many videos set to different music, I think Techno Viking has reached his evolutionary apex.
Like Captain America with super serum and an indestructible shield, a mad computer-lab scientist has infused Techno Viking with Eminem and given him Leonidas’ head. (The really sweet dance moves kick in at about the 2:00 minute mark.) Behold:
Thank you, MaestroZX, for giving Techno Viking some 300 soul.
And thank you, good reader, for stopping by. See ya Tuesday!
