I randomly remembered “The Balls Are Inert“, a classic 00s meme that was the soundtrack to my college days. Its creator, Kajet, has been making meme videos since then (mostly “in-jokes” as he calls them) and I recently found a new-ish one called “The Phoenix Saint is Ikki”. The clip is taken from an anime called Saint Seiya, which aired from 1986—1989.
It’s the kind of absurdist humour you either get (ie. laugh regardless of the reason why) or don’t (no laughter for you!)
