Endless Loop of Raccoons

September 10th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 32 Comments


There’s very little that needs to be said about the above video, except that I can all too easily envision a scenario where terrorists somehow slip THC into our nations water supply and use an endless loop of this video to keep everyone busy while they take over the world. Kudos to anyone who can figure out what the hell is going on.

Thanks for the vid Cameron!

    Some kind of ecstasy fueled raccoon dance party?

  • 2 Eeliza on Sep 10, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    Wow…that is the cheapest circus I have ever seen. At least the raccoon’s could be wearing little tutus or hats or riding tiny unicycles or something.

    Ugh, grammatical error…no apostrophe in raccoons…deeply mortified.

    that reminds me of the bathroom graffiti my friend just send me a picture of that said ” I [heart] boob’s”

    So fluffy!

    Put on CCR’s “Born on the Bayou” while watching this video. It’s the perfect beat.

  • 7 MonkeyCheezPants on Sep 10, 2008 at 10:34 pm

    Maybe they were an admirer of an establishment called “Boob’s”?

    they are exhibiting the pathological behavior of workers trapped in their cubicles.
    only there are usually a few less fleas in the human workplace.

    This is:
    1-Raccoon Safety Dance
    2-Obsessive Compulsive behavior resulting from eating Tom Arnold’s garbage

    Glib glib.

    What?! You wanted something deep? I lost all capacity for rational thought when I viewed the video. The ‘coons musta stolen my brain while I wasn’t lookin’. you just can’t trust an animal wearing a mask.

  • 11 Krud on Sep 11, 2008 at 7:15 am

    Er, I suspect that we don’t REALLY want to know what they’re doing…

  • 12 Ra-chan on Sep 11, 2008 at 11:04 am

    I’m not so sure about the less fleas thing…

  • 13 emily on Sep 11, 2008 at 11:09 am

    no need for thc, i’m fascinated by this without drugs.

  • 14 Brian O. on Sep 11, 2008 at 11:24 am

    And now I have the image of a raccoon saying “I think you have my stapler”. Thanks!

    Raccoons are nature’s OCD.


  • 16 Walter on Sep 11, 2008 at 12:03 pm

    Raccoon orgy.

  • 17 suzanne on Sep 11, 2008 at 12:17 pm

    they are climbing the walls not knowing which state quarter wins.


  • 18 RemmieBarrow on Sep 11, 2008 at 1:54 pm

    Ah, they are just looking for some itches to scratch, know what I mean, nudge nudge wink wink.

  • 19 Nanobots on Sep 11, 2008 at 2:27 pm

    How quickly everyone forgets. They’re doing “The Lurch”

  • 20 biggs on Sep 11, 2008 at 3:22 pm

    Someone should tell them the one side is open, there’s no need to try and climb the walls to get out. It seems unnecessary.

  • 21 Conor Lastowka on Sep 11, 2008 at 3:35 pm

    I’m curious as to which raccoon everyone prefers, because in my mind there is a clear winner

  • 22 euphoriafish on Sep 11, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    Definitely the swaying one. That guy’s got moves!

    The other one is just hopped up on discarded Pixie Stix.

  • 23 BULLYtheBULLY on Sep 11, 2008 at 9:42 pm

    When animals are caged for extended periods of time they show obsessive-compulsive repetitive behavior. This would be a funny video if I didn’t know this :(

  • 24 MST3Kelly on Sep 11, 2008 at 10:17 pm

    no, no. what was admired BELONGED to ‘Boob.’

    I think.

  • 25 NavarezElectro on Sep 11, 2008 at 10:19 pm

    I have a feeling that their activities are far beyond the scope of human comprehension.
    It’s like dabbling in God’s domain…

  • 26 Invisible Cracker Mom on Sep 11, 2008 at 10:23 pm

    Hey Conor:
    what would you give to get six of us to re-create this? You could Rifftrax it.

  • 27 MST3Kelly on Sep 11, 2008 at 10:26 pm

    I’ve got to vote for the one crammed into the far-right hand corner. I’m not sure why.

    uh-oh- this was some kind of psychological test, wasn’t it? and now you know- something- about me, don’t you?
    clever boy, Conor. clever boy…

  • 28 NavarezElectro on Sep 11, 2008 at 10:28 pm

    And good god- think of their tiny Starbuck’s cups…

    The horror- the horror-

  • 29 Sasha on Sep 12, 2008 at 1:17 pm

    Well, clearly the two on the sides are polishing the wooden box, making sure to switch positions halfway through for consistency, while the ones huddled up in the back are emotionally preparing themselves for a zombie nightmare scenario by pretending to eating each other.

  • 30 MonkeyCheezPants on Sep 12, 2008 at 1:59 pm

    Ah. An areola aficionado.

  • 31 Eric on Sep 15, 2008 at 11:42 am

    This reminds me of the acid party in the “Blue Boy” episode of Dragnet.

  • 32 Paul V on Sep 17, 2008 at 4:21 pm

    Someone was on Hulu. =P
