The Muscle Companions Have To Stop All From Turning To Road, Duh

W is the least of the things this is NSF:

Obviously, at first glance, that video might seem COMPLETELY INSANE. But it’s actually really normal and makes a lot of sense if you read the YouTube description:

Deep in the forest lived Billy and his charming companions. They peacefully honed their bodies and listened to music there. But a wave of development came upon the forests. One who would turn all to road. Kagamine Rin had come. Billy must stop the construction before all is turned to road.

Hmm. Wait. No, I still think this video is mostly completely nuts. But perhaps this more elaborate explanation from user halcy at Reddit provide some clarity:

It’s a combination of several 2channel / Nicovideo memes. The ones I recognize:

Overall, the thing is a parody of (a parody of, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8FfUqZSWJw) the racing scenes from the racing anime Initial D, which all look kind of like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv020dZXOrY . There is also a “Gutter run” in there, which is kind of the main characters signature move, where he hooks his wheels into the gutter to be able to go around the curve faster.

The dudes on the bike are from a gay wrestling porn movie. It’s popular on nicovideo and has sparked things like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9PFoBNuNMw (NSFW, duh.)

The steamroller is from Jojos Bizzare Adventure. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbArvIqZzkI

The person driving the Steamroller is Kagamine Rin, a Vocaloid personification. She and Len are somehow associated with steamrollers now, presumably because both are yellow.

The background music is also a pretty distorted Vocaloid song, see that first youtube link up there.

Right. Got it. This video is totally normal and makes lots of sense. Baby face laser crotch is the new whatever. (Via The Daily What.)
