I know! I guess this is pretty popular all over. They even have cool T-shirts for Techno Viking

WHS-I missed it, also! What's the point? Maybe we're too old to 'get it'! I like the Vikingkittens.

Ya, there must be a generation gap - or maybe a brain gap.

It took me a while also to get it, but now I see the clip does have a very deep and relevant meaning.

Hmm, but wasn't it supposed to be funny? Are you sure you are not seeing things?

Yes; I just spent another 20 minutes watching and re-watching the clip. It has deep meaning. Might even buy a T shirt.

Yes. After the first time I didn't know what to say. Then I watched it again ... and it made absolutely no more sense ... but the power of the viking pulls me back.

Had to go back again tonight. The clip is powerful with the sound co-ordinated so perfectly with the action.

It's only about four minutes. Have to review the clip for about an hour to get the true meaning.

After you begin to experience the power of the clip, you will be compelled back again and again to it.

I think we are seeing a generation gap with Rick as the odd ball.

It was not meant as "name calling". Just seems like you are the youngest (at least in spirit) of us old folks.

@whs,

OH (My Bad) !!!

Mis-read your original post.

Thanks !!!!
Yes, I fall in between age groups so sometimes I use a bit of (Sarcasm) in all groups according to the topic being discussed :) :) It is a good place to be as I can understand the view points of all generations and where they are coming from with their comments in most cases.

I didn't make it, sorry. Whoever did probably used a program that captures FLV (Flash video) to AVI or MPG and then used an animated GIF program to make it from there.

@techgranny,

Would you like me to fix it for you so you could use it for your animated icon (Avatar)??

@JadeEmperor,
The Actual Video with SOUND has a Very Deep and Powerful Meaning.
Must be Reviewed, Listened to and Pondered Upon to (Fully Grasp) the Psychological and Moral Significance.
Over Time, Understanding and Wisdom Will Come.

@ Rick,

the only significance i can see in that clip is that water can help push the illegal substances to an even higher level, judging by the way he starts jigging around!!!

@madmacs,
Some have to watch and listen for days, even weeks to get the true meaning.
Don't give up so easily.

madmacs,
It takes deep contemplation.
One must be in a serious frame of mind.
Try harder.

i put the sound level higher and it kinda "disturb" the other life form in my room.
