Extra Heretical!

For those not keeping track, this month is the 25th anniversary of Warhammer 40,000 – the first edition (the legendary Rogue Trader) being released in February 1987. Games Workshop is celebrating with events at their stores worldwide and is taking every opportunity to squeeze as much money as they can out of us poor devotees.

In comemoration of this momentous event I would very much like to make a celebratory video and whack it up on YouTube. Unfortunately, while I believe I would be entirely capable of making it, I simply don’t have the time to waste on something so stupid, and as such I shall merely describe it here…

We open with the 25th anniversary Aquila against a dark background. A frighteningly deep voice intones “In the grim darkness of the 41st millenium there is only….. DANCE!”. The rest of the video consists of animated  representatives of every army in the game doing the Caramelldansen against a series of apocalyptic backgrounds – except for an Imperial Commissar who insists on dancing to Falco instead.

Now c’mon, can you deny that such a video would be teh awesum?

Well, yes, you probably can.

In any case, here are examples of the ridiculous kinds of videos that inspired this ridiculous idea, for your enjoyment/torture…

  1. As a noob and outsider to this “Caramelldansen” meme my opinion is that it is molto stupido. With zero background research my hypothesis as to the genesis of Caramelldansen, was that it was started by Ted Dansen in a commercial for caramel desert topping. His exaltation of the product was expressed in the horrendous dance we see above.

    Denys, your video WOULD be awesome. The videos that inspired your video concept, well lets just say I’ll never get that time back again.

  2. Dude, I SO want to see Ted Danson doing the Caramelldansen! That would be internet gold! GOLD!! (like Starbucks in Starbucks)

    Seriously though, isn’t your life more complete now you’ve seen a Necron doing the birdie dance?
