Okay, I was surfing through youtube and I came across this video called Western Show On Super Mario Bros.

There are a lot of videos using this same sound, (Which I believe is from NND) but with different actual video, usually being videogame characters.

Some examples:

But it seems to be really popular, with the videos having hundreds of thousands of views, and there aren’t just these examples I’ve posted, there are hundreds of them on youtube, and (I’d assume) NND. I’ll take more of a look at NND in a bit, but I just though I’d post this here in case anyone else knows about this or there is something about it here already.

Hyadain, the author of this song, is very famous creative user on NND and is professional pop music composer in actually. His real name is Kenichi Maeyamada.

His interview (in English)

His article on wikipedia (Google translation)

The orginal movie of this fad named “ウエスタンショー(western show)” was posted to NND on Feb. 8, 2008.

The most succeed movie of this fad is here. It was posted to NND on Apr. 26, 2008 and scores over 3 million page views on NND.

By the influence of this movie, many followers started to make many animations with this song.

Another notable movie is this “Super Mario Hyadain”. It was posted to Newground.com on Jun. 6, 2008. Yes, this was not made by Japanese.

It seems that the popularity of this fad among westerners was being grown by this movie.
