Bottom Line: File this one under oddball human tricks. There isn’t too much more that you can see about why it is a meme.
The Fuckparade is an annual summer techno demonstration in Berlin. The event developed in reaction to the exclusion of Gabber music and commercialisation of Love Parade. The Love Parade itself, in 2000, was described as Berlin’s largest tourist attraction, drawing 1.5 million young people to the city.
The “Techno Viking” internet meme features a man dancing at the 2000 Fuckparade. The YouTube video was the #1 clip on Rude Tube’s series-three episode Drink and Drugs.
An internet meme created on theforum.com thanks to a video of the Berlin Fuck Parade of 2000 in which a large muscle-bound German man asserts his authority upon the people and dances to demonstrate his power. He is, technoviking.
