Bizarre Japanese Made Videos

Here's one that made it's way to YouTube. I can only imagine what this is all about and why it was made. Maybe it was a nightmare after eating too many Big Macs. Who knows?

When the video ends, you'll see a whole bunch of others made by the same person using this Ronald McDonald theme. Weird!
