The Resident Evil cancan fulfills your nerd quotient for the day

Wishing you were at San Diego Comic Con but stuck at work/home? Wondering how you can fulfill your nerd quotient for the day? Or maybe you just always wondered what might happen if someone were to combine the world's most famous zombie video-game series with the infamous cancan song?

If you answered yes to any/all of those questions, have we got something special for you!

See, some enterprising and, presumably, completely bored Japanese gamer with too much time on his hands (and/or a moderate case of OCD) cut up and respliced sounds and scenes from the Resident Evil games to create this lovely rendition of the cancan song (apparently the galop infernal from Jacques Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld if Wikipedia is to be believed). Anyway, it's quite amusing, especially for fans of the game. How many of your favorite scenes can you spot?
