A Tribute to Techno Viking and Other Viral Superstars
It’s likely many of you are already familiar with Techno Viking – the bizarre video clip of an antagonizing, muscle-bound Viking character ferociously dancing (and pointing) at the Berlin Love Parade a few years back. The clip surfaced a few months ago and has certainly received more than it’s fair share of laughs from this office.
In any case, Jeremiah Palecek, a pop artist originally from North Dakota has captured Techno Viking’s defining moment, as well as a slew of other memorable internet memes in a brilliant collection of oil paintings representing some of the Internet’s finest moments. Other viral moments documented in the series include the dramatic squirrel, Tom Cruise’s long winded speech, and the time Britney wished she’d worn underwear.
