LOL at the thought of anything ever being "scrubbed" from the internet.  The days where that may have been possible are LONG gone.

Fritsch used the video's success to anchor his artistic career as he studied the meme as artform.

Studying memes for a living?

I knew I should've gotten a major in memeology with a minor in rickroll planking.
 
2013-01-17 05:45:08 PM
yeah. good luck with that.

Sounds nice and all but when you got to the job market it would have let you down and you would have had to give it up.

Somebody give Technoviking a reality show. I'd watch that.

Stay inside and don't go to public places, especially outdoor festivals, if you don't want your picture taken, dumbass.

I must be the only one on Fark who never heard of him.

or here's a radical thought: since this guy has apparently been dining out on the Viking for a long time, paying his rent and etc, maybe he could have, ya know cut the guy featured in the video a check one in a while and the guy might have been cool with the whole thing

Would that make you a creative type, or a barrista?

Because there used to be one of those set to that one cover of "The Final Countdown," I can tell you that I'm mildly distraught.

Mildly, now.

I don't get the impression that anyone actually knew who he was, other than the Technoviking, himself.
 
2013-01-17 06:45:38 PM
Don't worry. Some TechnoPortuguese will claim the title for TechnoSpain.

Or they could partner up and open a TechnoViking club. Some venture capitalist out there can be convinced it's a good idea.

If he tried to grab my arms like that, I would seriously beat his littering ass right there in the street. He'd be drinking that water through a tube poked into his drugged out veins. He's the kind of guy who likes to intimate people at public events. Well I'm not intimidated. Try that shiat on me you farking dweeb.

Dude is my hero. I love when he make the guy go back. Pushes his hand down when he points where he wants to go and shames him. Then does some awesome moves

For some reason I seriously thought this guy was the tank commander in Reign of Fire. IMDB tells me I am mistaken.

When it comes to classic viking memes I like the viking kittens sailing along to the Immigrant Song better. Not to take anything away from Technoviking but I like Zeppelin more than techno music.

He touches you and you surrender to his desires. That is the way of the technoviking.

Aw man... Didn't need a reason to not love the Technoviking.

Page won't open on my phone...but if I understand the quoted text, the following occurred:
(1) he used the video to gain fame and notoriety;
(2) now he feels he is known for something other than being the 'techno-Viking';
(3) he wants his past as the 'techno-Viking' scrubbed

Did I get that right? If so, I really dislike people like that.

Nope. Someone else used the video to gain fame, notoriety and a paycheck. Now Technoviking wants the shiat taken down because someone that wasn't him profited from it.

No.

1) Artist records TechnoViking
2) Posts video online, forgets about it
3) Years later, it goes viral
4) He reposts it to YouTube, it goes viraler
5) YouTube starts sending him checks
6) TechnoViking doesn't like being InternetFamous, sues.

Not quite. The guy who uploaded the video is the guy behind the camera, artist Matthias Fritsch, not the Technoviking. No one, except Fritsch and the Technoviking himself (and probably the blue haired girl) knows who the Technoviking is.
