Today is, err, Gachimuchi Day…

I logged into Nico Nico Douga this morning and went WTF. The top video list is filled with Gachimuchi Pantsu Wrestling (Don’t click unless you have your heart prepared!) videos. Here’s a rundown on what the meme is all about, shamelessly stolen from Wikipedia:

Billy Herrington (born 14 July 1969, Long Island, New York) is a heterosexual, or “gay-for-pay,” American pornographic actor who appeared in gay pornography.

Herrington has also become an internet meme among the Japanese community after a clip from one of his videos ‘Workout’ was posted on Nico Nico Douga, a Japanese video sharing website. Over 1000 parody videos of him have been made, many of which utilizes deliberate mishearings of his lines in the porn flick. He is affectionately called “Brother” (兄貴 aniki) among the Nico Nico Douga community, and most of his videos are deliberately tagged with “Forest Fairy” (森の妖精 mori no yousei), “Philosophy”, or both.

So, I was like “Damn you Nico Nico Douga! Not only you announced you are going to remove anime MADs, you also deprive me of lolis and stuffs I watch, and then force me to watch all these, err…, MADs I don’t watch?”


ARRGGGHHHH!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, seems like I have to put up with this today. It’s Aniki’s birthday after all. It’s good to see that denizens of Nico Nico Douga are having fun, which means that the community is still very much alive.

On another note, it’s almost two weeks from the MAD-wiping-out annoucement, but I still see plenty of Lucky Star, Haruhi, and Code Geass MADs in the ranklist. So the announcement was just an empty threat or something? I’m not sure about what’s going on any more, but I hope the situation continues like this, with fewer gachimuchi videos, of course.

    I think I should watch more of these just to get what they are, but haven’t been able to bring myself to…

    The MAD wipe may be referring to the Futae no Kiwami vids that are being disabled like wildfire. They’re normally tagged with フタエノキワミ、アッー! or KYM. Some Futae no Kiwami vids even mention the large-scale disablings. And newer vids tend to be ultra-blurred perhaps hoping they’ll be kept in Nico.

    HydroKirby: Thanks for the info. Good thing some of the good and heavily mashed-up ones still remain.
