Video of the Day: ArcheAge Goes Moo

Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

You're weird. That's why I love you.

Some days you experience a chain reaction of events. This was one such day. It began with me coming across a funny bit of engrish advertising "easy removal of bowels," which, you know, sounds painful. And that got me singing in my head, for some inexplicable reason, "I like to move it, move it!" (You just have to trust me when I say that, earlier this morning, before coffee, that connection was funny as hell.) Moving it got me thinking about dancing. (And got me to stop thinking about bowel removal, for which I'm grateful.) The combination of dancing and bad translations made me think about Korean MMOs. Yeah, I know it's a stretch, but it happened. And that led me to this ArcheAge dancing video, which is kind of NSFW because Macklemore. (That's a complete sentence. Shut up. It's Friday.)

Anyhow, all of this is strange and convoluted. But then I encountered the ArcheAge fan video* below. It's strange, yet surprisingly not convoluted, because it has cows standing in what looks like military formation, very organized. Is there a cow militia? Do they seek revenge for all those cow tipping incidents? Or for alien cattle mutilations? I don't know. What I do know is that now you have to watch all 38 seconds of this.

You like the sexy party! Like Macklemore's Thrift Shop, this song's destined to get wedged in your brain pan. You're welcome! You may have also noticed that the cows appear to be growing (or maybe guarding) some mushrooms. I'm not sure about their magical properties, but maybe if you consume one militant cows will somehow make sense.

* ArcheAge is only playable in Korea right now, but you can sign up for beta.
