Then there's the non-squirrel version...

The song is Taivas Lyö Tulta by Finn heavy-metal band Teräsbetoni. Apparently, there's a serious question in Finland of whether they're a corny over-the-top metal band or if they're a really subtle parody act. "Teräsbetoni" is Finn for "Reinforced Concrete." They could be the live-action predecessors of Dethklok.

Well, let's see what you think of this combination:

They're a metal band, dedicated to doing metal in the Finn language.

They sing about the metal brotherhood of pagan(esque) warriors.

Teräsbetoni is Finn for "reinforced concrete" and I just don't see how that could be a non-ironic name.

Taivas Lyö Tulta apparently translates to "The Sky Strikes Fire" and has been described as a celebration of the metal brotherhood, exuberant to an almost incoherent level.

I think they know they're over the top.

Yeah, that was more or less what I meant.
Nice bodies.
