Seriously, it's a little disturbing, and not just because it sounds like that dude from District 9 speed-rapping nonsense about being a ninja. Actually, that's the easiest to swallow thing about this whole, bizarre mess. And it's worth noting that the goofy looking gent you see here is, by far, the most normal looking person in this video.
