Although this trend isn't new, it hits Japan recently and created a big buzz there.. What is Caramelldansen? It's Swedish for Caramel Dancing..

This is a song in the first track of the album Supergott released in 2002 by the Swedish music group Caramell.. This wasn't made famous around the world till the release of an animation loop..

The 15 frame animation loop shows Mai and Mii, characters of the visual novel Popotan (doing a hip swing dance with their hands over their heads simulating rabbit ears), and the speedup version of the song caramelldansen (Swedish for Caramel dance).

After that, it became an online sensation in the otaku online community.. To the otaku blogsphere, it is referred to as "Uuu Uuu Uma Uma" [ウッーウッーウマウマ(゚∀゚)]

Here are some examples of other characters doing the dance too.. With intresting results…!

Ran and Chen ver.

Prince of Tennis ver.

Reisen and Tewi ver.

Rin and Len ver.

Chihaya and Yayoi ver.

Tomoyo and Fuku ver.

Suzaku and Lelouch ver.

Itsuki and Kyon ver.

Nagato Yuki ver.

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A’s ver.

Anyway, I picked out 2 of the best version of Caramelldansen.. Here they are..

Here we got an otaku doing the dance.. Got to give him credit for dancing for the whole 2.5mins.. If I do it, I can barely manage 1min..

And of course theres hatsune Miku version.. Wait till you see the hand picks the board up..

I think the Caramelldansen might hit the whole world like a firestorm.. Who knows..
