Updated It's not often that we recommend some complete craziness on the Internet - in fact we have been doing it far less frequently of late, which may be a sad indication of how creativity has dried up on the modern Internet. However...

You have to pay a visit to David Stevenson's, Rammstein's and Robert Manuel's musical comic lunacy here. We've no idea what's going on here but we like it.

It loads very fast and begins with some bellowing chant before kicking into a ukulele with Maggie Thatcher taking lead role with a cat body.

"Trazan? Ja. Trazan? Ja"

As the Swedish music corrupts the senses, the Houses of Parliament start burning, the giant bunny potters around behind it, Maggie zaps flying fish with her laser eyes and fat naked deers dance with Bez from the Happy Mondays.

It ends, appropriately enough, with a Kebab King sandwich. Remarkable.

Update

You won't believe this but we've found out what it all means. Well, not the images but the song. Jules has been in touch to tell us that his mate Tobias remembers the song from his childhood.

Apparently, it comes from a famous Swedish TV show for kids. The song is of a monkey, called Banarne (and Apan as well ?!) and a human Tarzan-wannabe called Trazan or Trazan Apansson.

Together they just kinda hung out in the jungle and sang songs. The song you can hear on this particular gem of lunacy consists of the monkey asking the boy if he wants to do something cool. The monkey suggests singing a song while he hangs by his tail.

If you want more of the same, then go here. Not only that but Robert Manuel has been in touch, and given us this link which gives more info on the animation - called Jada apparently. And here is a pic of them.

Be afraid, be very afraid

And more

Yet more info. This time from Fredrik Larsson. He explains: "The swedish comic/author/artist/Mickey Mouse-aholic Lars Aberg depicts the figure Trazan Apansson. The role of Banarne is played by Klasse Möllberg, a swedish singer/comic.

These figures were part of a childrens TV-show in the seventies. They recorded a number of songs like 'Banankontakt' (Banana-contact), 'Ja da' and 'Fantomens brallor' (The Phantom's trousers). They have also recorded a couple of albums in the nineties, and played on the Hultsfred festival in '97.

The band playing the music is called 'Electric Banana Band' with Jan 'Janne' Schaffer on lead guitar (often using one shaped like a banana)."

So there you have it.
