At the entrance of Hell, this Bugs Bunny costume guards the way.

Jesus. JESUS. There is no Jesus here where this video exists, but GAH JESUS.

WHY DID HE BECKON AT THE CAMERA? Does he know I’m watching? Oh god, why is he on that rocking horse? Why is he there? What is it about his presence that kills all audio recording it? Bugs Bunny continues to ride, head forward, atop his horse of Pestilence or Famine, without ever stopping.

I just turned on the lights in my room. And I locked the door. No, I don’t think this video means me harm. I believe it’s just a weird family video that lost the audio. All I’m saying is you can’t be too careful. Better to lock your door a thousand times than have this thing looming over you one night.

I thought that was the end of it, and then I found the other videos this account had hosted. And I skyrocketed from misery all the way to elation in less than a minute.

Just REALLY think about this guys life. Poking fun of furries usually starts to feel like a hate crime, but think for more than a few seconds about all the time and planning that went into organizing a lightsaber session in NJ with a fellow furry named Fuzzle Ferret, adorning your own Acid Horse costume with American flags, and recording it on the boardwalk with some sort of plan for sharing the spectacle with the world. How is your brain not exploding?

It’d be very easy for any of us to stage something like this, but this video feels genuine. Look at all the details, the unabashed pride in what they’re doing. Look at 4:00 as Acid Horse dual wields the sabers and flexes a pose even Mace Windu would feel is too brash.

Thanks to GoodAaron for the initial video find.
