Amazing there's enough room on that stage for them all to scuttle around at once.

BTW, the wiki article has finally been deleted, though it still lives on in various blogs and articles.

I feel like when they practice they must spend more time choreographing their scuttles and walking in place thing than writing songs.

Live video. Worth it even if you've seen the video ten times. They do some different crab moves.

They could have gotten away with it just leaving the absolutely fucking ridiculous crab moves in the music video, but the fact that they actually pull the same moves live just cements that they are complete and utter fail.

I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't, his face isn't what would draw one's attention, I guess.

Yes! It didn't sound too good in the live video, but the techno bit is probably my favourite part of the song.

I keep getting one line stuck in my head and humming it when doing other stuff, and it's really starting to get on est's (and my own) nerves. I need to learn more of the words, so it's not the one bit over and over and over again.

I don't like this band anymore

i still can't decide if i like them either. half the time i spend thinking about/watching videos by this band i am genuinely impressed by what a fucking mess they are, but the other half the time (usually when i catch a glimpse of the thousands of youtube comments professing love for this band) i just think about teenagers listening to this, and how they must also dress and act, and then i feel cranky and old and basically turn into ray yelling at his nephew.

Having watched the second video closely, I can't really think of any explanation other than the further proliferation of crabcore.  It has all the hallmarks: choreographed dance moves such as running in place and some crablike gestures, the auto-tune chorus, the screeching, the combination of keyboard presets and numetal riffz, the aggressive hair-straightening...The list goes on and on. It's utterly baffling.
