The internet is weird. It's bound to be. It's a globally-connected open forum that anyone in the world can get involved with, and despite what you think as a kid, as anyone's who's grown up and done a brief stint working in retail will tell you, most people are completely insane.
Our new favourite weirdo? This guy. His favourite things? Nintendo's Rhythm Heaven, laser-powered robo-fingers and freakin' massive samurai swords. This insight into his life? Potentially terrifying.
Playing the GBA version of Nintendo's Rhythm Heaven via a specially-made Heath Robinson automated finger device (powered by a laser), he uses his dark technical know-how to complete the Samurai Slash mini-game. Fine, if odd, until he starts sheathing and unsheathing a real katana in the background of the shot, in steely-eyed synchronicity with the game's rhythm.
I think it's the sparse, white room and sinister, curtainless black window encroaching into the background of the frame, but there's something just brilliantly unsettling about this whole video. The black-clad wraith silently flourishing a blade with ritualistic obsessive-compulsive rhythm probably helps, too.
For added effect, turn the sound down and run this track from Twin Peaks at the same time. It'll scar the crap out of you for life, but hey, it's an interesting way of killing a couple of minutes.
