As Bill Bailey pointed out; that lyric may sound profound but actually makes no more sense than “I’ve got Ham but I’m not a Hamster”.

Bwahahaha, i hadn’t heard that one, I shall use it from henceforth :D

That is fantastic. Next time I listen to that song I’m singing that instead
07/04/2010 at 08:44
what the fuck this is awful. I blame europe
07/04/2010 at 12:04
The United Kingdom is found within Europe, and this site is run by British people, limeys if you prefer the term, but specifically: Europeans. Not to mention that the majority of readers are likely British too, drawn here by the British sense of humour found within the writing (I never did get Destructoid or Kotaku, they’re mostly not at all funny to me, but RPS is frequently so).
Soooo… you do realise that, right? >.> WELCOME TO EUROPE!
07/04/2010 at 13:02
You are technically correct but the term “europe” is often used in the UK as shorthand to denote “mainland europe / the rest of europe”. It can also mean “the EU / European Commission / Brussels / Eurozone”. It doesn’t technically make any sense, but you can usually tell what people mean from the context.
If a Brits hears an American talk about “Europe” and “Europeans”, depending on what is being discussed they might or might not take it as applying to them (for example “Europe doesn’t want to fight in Afghanistan” or “PC game are more expensive in Europe” etc).
07/04/2010 at 15:05
I blame Europe, the 80s glam metal band. Whilst we Europeans are responsible for many things considered bad by other nationalities (small cars, industrial design, IKEA, Swiss neutrality), I don’t think we can take blame for Eurodance and techno in quite the same way.
07/04/2010 at 16:43
Techno is actually a thoroughly American invention, seeing as it was born in Detroit.
07/04/2010 at 18:09
Us Europeans cannot be taken responsible for cheap techno music. We are still busy apologizing for France Gall.
07/04/2010 at 22:52
According to alexa the majority of traffic on RPS comes from the US.
07/04/2010 at 08:54
That needs a decent video.
Actually, that needs an AWESOME video.
07/04/2010 at 08:56
Once is enough for me.
07/04/2010 at 08:57
Umm, I… What?
07/04/2010 at 09:00
Wtf, Americans sucks. This is awesome.
07/04/2010 at 09:00
And I thought these euro-pop trance remixes were made especially for DotA…..
07/04/2010 at 09:01
HOLY UNGODLY COCK
07/04/2010 at 09:12
Techno ruins everything. Poor Soldier

Ignorant cretins that are not aware what “techno” really is, ruin everything.
(The music in the video is much closer to euphoric trance, if anything.)
07/04/2010 at 13:38
I thought it was more of a happy hardcore number myself
07/04/2010 at 14:34
In non-dance music speak, all dance music is handily labelled “techno”. As this is clearly dance music, it fits the bill for those who aren’t fans of the genre. Don’t be a music snob.
It’s nice, whether it’s euphoric trance or happy hardcore. Sounds more like trance to me, though.
07/04/2010 at 19:22
It’s not Happy Hardcore without piano and chipmunk vocals. Trust me, I used to live with someone who’d play it 24/7. I still have nightmares.
07/04/2010 at 09:16
Thank you, I needed that to wake up properly.
07/04/2010 at 09:22
That. And I’m spanish (Wich means, european). And I’m ashamed.
07/04/2010 at 09:27
This needs a spectacular music video. Now.
07/04/2010 at 09:27
“Fire! FIRE!” is just perfect. Thank you Gillen. Thillen.
07/04/2010 at 09:30
That ending is perfect. Just perfect.
(PS. I always fail the first CAPTCHA, and succeed on the second. Always. It has to be a bug.)
07/04/2010 at 12:02
This and Larington’s post are how I felt about this.
At first I simply had no clue what I was listening to or why I was listening, but the ending was perfect. This is the new Starcraft 12 Days of Christmas, it’s just one of those things that’s absolutely useless and silly, but funny at the end.
I liked it. I think!
07/04/2010 at 12:21
@Wulf : 12 days of Team Fortress is even better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znR5XyjLzS8 :-)
07/04/2010 at 09:40
Cheesy beats :(
07/04/2010 at 09:41
The ending had me laughing,
07/04/2010 at 09:54
You are running, I am runninger!
07/04/2010 at 09:58
TF2 on ecstacy…hrm

oh europe… where did it all go wrong?
07/04/2010 at 10:33
Awesome. Just… awesome :D
07/04/2010 at 10:37
Let this be the one and only time that RPS quotes The Killers.
With ex-Plan B staff in it’s ranks you’d think it’d know better.
And looking up before posting it is the ex-Plan B staffer that’s posted this. Oh dear.

Poor Soldier, his music career has gone down the crapper. I quite liked his collaboration with the Spy though in Cap My Point

Isn’t it illegal to combine something as memetic as TF2, with someone as memetic as Gaga?
08/04/2010 at 03:54
That’s either the best or the worst thing I’ve seen all day. Either way, I’ve laughing uproariously.

This is bad.
07/04/2010 at 11:20
Good morning Charlie.
07/04/2010 at 11:41
Should have based it mroe on scott brown rather than Tiesto it might had made more sense. Voice does really not go with the tune (as bad as the tune sounds).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YL3OC4S_2Q4 or something like it :P
07/04/2010 at 11:42
Well, I wasn’t expecting to actually be posted.
But hey, I guess I’m not the only person with a soft spot of horrible techno stuff.
Except this is awesome. (Soft spot talking.)
07/04/2010 at 11:43
It was then that I spell checked my post and realized that I had the phrase “soft spot of”…. How embarrassing. I’m pretending I went back and edited it by posting this.
07/04/2010 at 11:48
I guess that means you are half human, half robot
07/04/2010 at 11:56
07/04/2010 at 12:08
HAPPY VIRIDIAN FACE! :D
07/04/2010 at 12:37
Not able to find it myself, but someone made me grin when they played a version of Reel 2 Real’s ‘I Like to Move it’, spliced with engie quotes about ‘Move that gear up!’ in a TF2 server recently.
07/04/2010 at 12:48
Tom Davidson says:
This is not mere hyperbole, either. There is no situation that cannot be made worse with the application of techno.
07/04/2010 at 13:07
As an Australian, it should be mentioned that you appear to have posted this during our party hours.
For this I thank you.
07/04/2010 at 13:10
That is probably very good, I liked it.
07/04/2010 at 14:21
It’s the new Dota song! I’m outta here >.>
07/04/2010 at 14:58
Well I can’t hear this while at work, but I’m still guessing it’s not as good as:
I’m your medic
Be A Sniper
07/04/2010 at 15:04
TF2 + Euro-trance for breakfast = a very odd way to start the day.
I now have a really odd urge to find a copy of that Smurf’s dance-pop-covers-album…

Nerd Rage says:
You know I normally don’t go for this sort of thing, but somehow that was hugely entertaining. I don’t think I’ll want to listen to it again though, once is likely enough.

Mr Bismarck says:
My favourite dance song is the one that went “Down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down.
Anyone know what that one was called?
07/04/2010 at 17:09
I bet it’s called Get Get Down.
07/04/2010 at 18:33
Mr Bismarck says:
Now you’re just being silly.

This is epic.

Is this what you’re referring to?
07/04/2010 at 23:44
I loved it
