The latest music and choreography from British animator Cyriak = cows getting down. He writes: "No cows were harmed during the making of this video, though their future prospects probably aren't as optimistic." Video link.
Eh…I suspected as much when I lived on the farm.
Having seen cows move, I can’t help but cringe whenever I see their legs. Cow joints shouldn’t do that!
Anyone else with farm experience getting the same reaction?
Never had that experience…but I always thought their legs looked impossibly spindly to hold all that weight. Then you get kicked by one and understand it’s no problem at all.
Well, it’s really the cowspider that disturbed me more than anything.
Grew up on a cattle ranch in Idaho. Leg movements creeped me out too. They are sort of moving like they have four knees which they don’t.
First, I thought this was cute…then creepy…then slightly hypnotic… then i wanted to consider a spherical cow.
Yes! Those unnatural knee tweaks were painful to watch!
Needs an umbus.
I, for one, welcome our new arachnobovine overlords.
well, not really welcome…
more like hide under the bed until my arachnophobia subsides
Great, here comes another heated argument about the side effects of beef hormones.
@ Brainspore: You have no idea what you put in your mouth.
Ah, so that’s what drugs are like. Huh. :-)
I’ve been on drugs. There was less cow mitosis. Therefore, this is better than drugs.
Beats making a donkey parasail.
This is now my second favorite cow-themed animation. The first, of course, is still Magical Trevor.
Given that the creators are both b3tards the site must have a monopoly :D
Yeah, that wasn’t disturbing at all…
Felton: Ok, but MAKE IT STOP!!! (Oh, and They Might Be Giants called. They want their sound back.)
It. Never. Stops!!
Heh. Would you believe I had to go to YouTube to hear what They Might Be Giants sounds like? I’m a little behind on this new “rock ‘n’ roll” music the kids are listening to these days. :-D
…I had to go to YouTube to hear what They Might Be Giants sounds like?
You are dead to me.
Even if I liked what I heard?
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go check out this band called “The Beatles” someone told me about. ;)
I’m fine with cows. I’m mostly fine with spiders. Arachnobovines = shudder.
RealPlayer used to have an app with a cartoon sheep who would dance like this in time to the music, didn’t they? You could personalize it with different things like a bow or how many birds flew by, etc.
Bust a moo.
Spider cow, spider cow
Does whatever a spider cow does
Shoots a web
Instead of milk
She’s the scariest of her ilk
Look out! here comes the Spider Cow!
While watching this my eyes began to stop focusing and the video rectangle began stretching to the right…help meee
There is a fine line between “cute” and “ontology-peeling k-hole”.
That is what I said. This shaves my dendrites.
But seriously, don’t do drugs kids.
This is exactly the kind of trippy shit that the BBC is going to realise isn’t in it’s mandate any more. Enjoy it while you can, guys.
This demands more rumination.
Reminds me of this one, that I must watch every so often, just because. THANKS A LOT.
