This utterly bizarre video is trending on YouTube - but where the f*ck did it come from?

YouTube is obsessed with a truly insane musical number sung by a character called 'The Globglogabgalab' (just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?)

But what in the name of all that is holy is this monstrosity, and where did it come from?

It turns out the clip comes from an infamous animated Christian film called 'Strawinsky And The Mysterious House'.

The movie is based on a six part drama from the 1980s (??), but only part three of the series (??)

The movie was passion product made by one man, David Hutter, who decided to inject his own strong sense of Christianity into the film.

Bizarrely this film was inspired by another Christian movie called 'Pilgrims Progress', which was made by Scott Cawthon - the creator of Five Night's At Freddy's. No, really.

But what is the The Globglogabgalab??

The Globglogabgalab is some kind of creature, that appears in the film for... no particular reason?. He is eats books and is "nourished" by them. The film has a strange message that books are bad, for old school religious reasons, so the Globglogabgalab represents the personification of books being evil... maybe? Honestly it's so hard to follow what's going on in this film. All we know for sure is that this guy sucks to look at.

Naturally the internet has already meme'd the living hell out of the Globglogabgalab
