EVE-Online devs make a rap video :) (in Off-topic)

Sickone October 8 2009 4:01 PM EDT

As the finale of the fanfest presentations, the guys at CCP (the makers of EVE-Online) made the following rap video...
The full text of the song is in the comments to the video, if you have trouble understanding the Icelandic accent of the devs.

Considering this guys are a bunch of programmers (well, mainly), the video is a quite hilarious in-joke, but it's not a bad song either (quite catchy).
Personally, I'm a bit biased, since I love EVE, and have been playing for ages...
...what do you guys think of the vid itself, ignoring who made it and that it's meant in a funny way (i.e. an objective viewpoint).

I didn't find it very funny..

Absolutely hilarious, and a brilliant bit of PR.

Also, "From Atlanta to Shanghai to the Icelandic nation
Throw your hands up for World Domination!"

The chorus is very un-PG though.

I could only watch about 1/4 before I was about to die from boredom. That's 1 minute that I will never get back.

censored & fined Sickone 25k.

Well, it's just one un-PG word, but it's repeated quite often, and it's a very un-PG word :P

By the way, love the overlays with the names/functions of the "artists" in the clip... the "Technoviking" is the executive producer of the game, the singer is the lead game master, etc.

i liked it! it was quite a contrast to the mellow relaxing music played in the game. ; )

and another 25k down the drain.

Next time post something _after_ asking if it's ok, not _before_. Also don't forget if it's a no, then it is a no.
