Gunther: And why the Swedes crack me up



To those that have not yet been graced with his presence, let 2009 welcome you with Sweden's Gunther (Mats Söderlund): a hysterical model turned europop parody.   

Once you get past the pornographic mustache, pouty lips, terrible dance moves, and mullet (and the scantily clad "Sunshine Girls"), you won't be able to get these songs out of your head. You are welcome to curse me for it.

Here is "Ding Ding Dong"




And another gem: "Tutti Frutti Summer Love." Nothing beats the flying fruit and extra special surprise you get at 3:13.



What's the funniest thing you've seen on the internet lately?

Oh Wow! I know the last party I went to was just like that...

For those of you that might find this particular video of "Chocolate Bunny" interesting, I've been told that it's popular for Russian videos to feature black singers/dancers. This guy is Pier Narciss and it seems that the Russian ladies have really taken to him. (And, of course, this video is NOT satire.)

I think I'm scarred for life :). The champagne at the end of Ding Ding Dong is, um, classic?

The scariest thing is that I can now see this spawning a sort of hipster club music. Me things its time to download Fruity Loops and hit the wave while its rising :).

Another in this vein, though a little more toilet humor, are these dudes:

HA! I love the Pet Shop Boys vibe. It reminds me of this Flight of the Conchords Video "Inner City Pressure"

Damn, not sure why I'm going for the gutter humor. Wait, I always go for the gutter humor.

"D--k in a box" never really does get old, does it?

Dave said...

No. No it does not :).

This is the best holiday gift I could ever get. Gunther rules - plus, he looks like that guy in Ghost World with the mullet and nunchucks!
