One more meme for today! This time, it’s Caramelldansen!
From 2006, and like Loituma Girl (leekspin), it’s a mix of music and an animation bit.
The animation was extracted from the openning of an eroge (game with adult content) called Popotan for the PC.
Notice that an anime with the same name (without the adult content) based on the same characters was released later on.
The music that was added to complete the meme is from a swedish group called Caramell, from the album Supergott, only in a speed up version known as “Speedycake Remix”.
Enough with the history class, enjoy:
