What the @*?% did I just watch?

A while ago, my friend showed me a video. It was baffling on so many levels.

I spent the better part of the video, knowing the guy wasn't speaking English, and yet my brain kept subconsciously trying to piece together what he was saying into recognizable sentences. All the random sounds he makes simply sound like English sounds.

It gave me the same feeling I get whenever I try to push two magnets together. The more I fail, the more intensely I want to make it work. Maybe it's just me, but when I finally get the two magnets pushed together (however briefly) I have the idiotic feeling like I have accomplished something worthwhile. As if smashing to magnets together will somehow help bring an end to world hunger.

Unfortunately, there is no way to get this feeling when watching this video. At no point does anything said actually make up an English sentence.

Watch at your own peril. I also had to wonder who on earth said, "Yeah, this is a fantastic idea for a video. Let's give this thing a budget. It will be off the hook!"

Ah! I can't see it on my computer or ipad :( Can you post a link, please?

That won't do at all. I need as many people to be scarred as possible.

I...uh...I...can see it now. Not sure what that was all about, but I watched it.
