Techno Viking

The Technoviking was made famous due to a video that included a blue-haired girl dancing, then being crashed into by some unruly man during the Fuckparade 2000 (a techno street-parade in Berlin Germany). This caused Technoviking to forcefully grab the offending man by his arms and shove him back into the crowd. Technoviking then pointed at the man and gave him an extremely fierce gaze.

Technoviking then started dancing wildly through the streets after being handed a water from one of his many dancing minions.
