Following on with the meme theme, this one remains quite the mystery, but it seems the mystery has been a strong contributor to the legend that surrounds Techno Viking. Some great tales, images, and videos have spread wildly online and continue to this day.
We don’t know a whole lot about the star of the show but what we do know is that:
The video was shot at the Fuckparade in 2000 (a techno street parade in Berlin)
The video was first uploaded in 2006 but didn’t really hit until late 2007. The original now has over 14 million views.
Not much is happening in the early part of the video until someone runs into the blue haired girl. Techno Viking objects to this and grabs the guy, no doubt reaming him out for his carelessness. The guy wants to continue on his merry way, but Techno Viking insists that he head back the other way. The guy obliges. Techno Viking’s evil eye follows him, and he gives a final finger point as a reminder before heading on his way through the parade. One of his followers shows up and offers him water, which he accepts. Almost immediately after, the wild dancing begins.
Numerous stories and parodies followed. “Techno Viking was born to rave; however, there was no techno music back then, so he was preserved in ice and mead in what is now known as Germany for future generations to bring to life when music worthy of Techno Viking’s awesomeness was invented.”
