Does it involve dipping your naked body in a big vat of caramel?

I'm going to assume it involves overconsuming caramel, going into a hyper active rage, and jumping around frantically.

It is also a popular Internet meme that began in the second half of 2006 in the Internet community 4chan.


Well, it's nice to know that TJP is only 2 years behind the times...

I'd say if you can do the dance, you should quit watching so much anime..

The origins of Carmelldansen are actually quite interesting but I also really dislike the meme in general. The music, the dance, its just irks something in me, and I'm an avid anime fan. I'm also really surprised it connected to the Anime community so well in both Japan and America. Oh well, I just think its one of the weirdest meme's out there and I don't see why its so popular.

Hehe, I detect a Mythbusters fan.
But I think it is so popular as a Meme is because you get to see your favorite anime girl dancing like a silly cheerleader. No offense intended to any cheerleaders that might be reading this.
