Romanian Techno Sweeping the Nation

This is genuinely weird, folks. I'm creeped out.

There's a video circulating on the Internet of a fat guy dancing on his webcam to a Romanian techno song. See it here.

Okay, so far, nothing weird. Hysterically funny, yes. But weird, no. What's weird is that I know this Romanian techno song. My friend John has been bumping it for months now, ever since his (I believe) Polish friends introduced it to him. He plays it in his car, in his apartment while he's playing Monkey Ball on the Gamecube, everywhere. He even e-mailed me this very video last week.

Of course, since it's the song he plays all the time, I assumed it was someone he knows dancing to the song. But apparently, it's not. It's just a coincidence. And now even Andrew Sullivan, noted gay conservative semi-retired blogger, has a link to it on his site. It's a strange day when e-mails from my friend John scoop one of the biggest blogs in the country.

And while we're talking about major news media being scooped by Crushed by Inertia, anyone else notice that the Jeff Gannon story I told you about yesterday made the front page of Yahoo today?
