Faulty Human Porn Gets Aliens ExcitedS

Maybe Marc Kremers wanted to create a Rothko without paintbrushes. Or maybe he just had a lot of bad porn lying around his living room. Whatever the reason, the London-based digital artist/animator created this web-based work of art using glitches from a faulty recording by a Danish porn company. By combining the flashy video with a randomly generated song that goes on forever, he managed to make it not look like porn at all—at least not to the human eye. Later, alien researchers found out that, if you show this video to residents of other planets, they break out in spontaneous mass dance routines similar to those seen on the streets of Tokyo in 2007.
