"Up, Up, Down, Down" is a Flash animated music video by self-proclaimed "Nerd Rock" band, Kirby Krackle. It starts out as a [[TastesLikeDiabetes sweet love song]] about a geeky video game store clerk who has a crush on a [[GamerChick girl]] who frequents his shop, before going into something [[LyricalDissonance completely]] [[NightmareFuel different]]. The video can be viewed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xg2kDtJZos8 here]].
