Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Web Animation

Real Life Examples

Animutation is actually pretty popular in Japan. Sometimes Japanese netizens would make misleading links to animutations such as Suzukisan and Hyakugojyuuichi in a similar fashion to rick rolling. In Japan, Hyakkugojyuuichi is considered a classic flash animation much like it is in the west, perhaps even more remembered.

In-Universe Examples

  • Homestar Runner: Strong Bad references this phenomenon in his email website, where he says "Who knows? Maybe tomorrow you'll be really big in Pakistan."
    • Or at least with some guy named Stan.
