This is, wow. I don't know what would possess such a large group of humans to participate in this. Yet I can't stop watching...

Heh heh, just when you think it can't get any stranger it does.

I think the interpretation of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da was my favourite part.

There was one move those elephant men did during that sequence that made me laugh out loud, I could not keep myself from watching it over and over!

Ha ha!

It seemed like such a travesty, I quit watching. After reading the comments, I'll woman up and watch the rest of it.

If you can't bring yourself to watch it all the way through Barbwire, just move the slider at the bottom of the video to about the 2min 40secs point to see the 'elephant men'.

I can't quit this trainwreck. I now need to share it with some friends who have been sleeping far too peacefully lately!

This sort of thing is why my childhood was a nightmare.

I took me a bit to realize they were supposed to be elephant men. The "trunks" sure looked like other male appendages waving around. Big ones, too.
