QQQQ SSSS.... *I*!

Ah, Yatta.

Originally appearing on a Japanese sketch comedy show called, roughly translated, "Adventures of a Laughing Dog," the song "Yatta" was released in 2001 and went top-ten and triple-platinum in a matter of weeks. So basically, cross the Far East with the Blues Brothers.

The song then became the soundtrack to a piece of animutation, which is how I first encountered it. It's a little dated, yes, but the deliberately misheard lyrics and abounding non sequiturs demand you to surrender to the nonsense, and you'd be well advised to do just that.

Adventures of a Laughing Dog is the best Japanese TV comedy, better than SNL in the states. There are some classic clips translated here
