“Welcome to rock & roll night” – Mawaru Pengiundrum

Con Artist: Brendan



Mawaru Penguindrum is a weird show. In it, a couple of dudes are extorted by an unknown entity holding their sister’s life hostage and possessing her via a penguin-themed hat, demanding that they acquire an object with no description, and no name other than the Penguindrum. Discussions between these parties typically occur once per episode, after a trippy sequence of CG nonsense leaves the guys a captive audience. This sequence (which I mistook for the ending credits when I first saw it) is accompanied by an appropriately strange song, which begins “Welcome to rock & roll night”.
