boten anna (english: anna bot)

this video made me laugh

 

here's a bit of an explanation from wikipedia. (more if you want it.)

"The Swedish lyrics of Boten Anna tell the story of a female IRC user mistaken for an IRC bot by the vocalist who later finds out the truth; subsequently, however, he states that she will always remain a bot in his eyes. The song is based on an actual experience of Jonas Erik Altberg (a.k.a. Basshunter), who explained the situation in an interview with the Finnish website Stara.fi. His friend said he would create a bot with administrative capabilities to keep order in his channel, #BassHunter.se; when this happened Jonas saw a new user with administrative capabilities named Anna enter the channel, and naturally thought this was the bot. Months later, he learned that Anna was actually not a bot, but was his friend's girlfriend; the embarrassment, he says, inspired him to create the song.

"Despite the esoteric subject of the lyrics, the song was well-received by mainstream media, albeit the word bot was frequently mistaken for boat (bot is commonly pronounced the same as boat in the dialect spoken by Altberg), and the double meaning of the word channel — the IRC channel mistaken for the body of water. The video to the song deliberately plays on double meanings, it shows BassHunter riding a 'bass hunter' pedal boat (used for hunting the fish called "bass") with a capital "A" on it, down a canal."
