NSFW: video wallpaper #1 – Crabtasm

 I was in a Koreatown supermarket recently and saw this little drama unfolding.  I thought if I kept the edges of the tank just outside of frame, the viewer might not immediately know what they were looking at (at the end of the video I pull out and reveal all).  In any case, watching these crabs parade around was mesmerizing and terrifying all at the same time.  Are they just looking for space?  Do they think if they keep piling up on each other they’ll create a crab Tower-Of-Babel and escape?  All I know is you probably shouldn’t let your kids watch this right before bed [NOTE: Click the gadget in the bottom right corner of video for full screen and maximum effect].  The only thing I can’t shake is the feeling that this video could use a better soundtrack – perhaps some music?  Wait a sec, I know exactly what this video needs…



If you have any ideas on how to “improve” this video, feel free to download it and create your own remix:

Have fun scaring the kids!

    All I can think of is what are the crabs thinking? “Wait, why is the water hard here? Maybe if I stand on George…”

    The Benny Hill theme music makes anything hilarious!

    That didn’t sound like Boots Randolph’s version of “Yakety Sax.” Was it a different recording by Boots or someone else entirely?

    Try playing it with “An Ending” by Brian Eno. That’ll really make you feel for the hopeless plight of the doomed crustaceans…or if you’re feeling philosophical, Eric Idle’s “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life”. ;)
