Just a four-armed mohawked robot playing a Ramones cover

OK, stop what you're doing this instant! The pinnacle of robotic and viral video achievement (at least for the rest of today) has just been reached in the form of a four-armed, mohawked robot playing the drums in tribute to the Ramones' legendary song "Blitzkrieg Bop." You've really got to see this one to believe it. Seriously.

What the... like seriously, I mean, just wow! This drum-playing robot is the clear front-runner for some kind of award in robotics of the awesome, right? The bizarre and brilliant video was posted by YouTube user lichenthrope with footage courtesy of Alan Sennett. And despite a series of truly amazing videos so far today here at CBS News' The Feed, I think I can pretty safely say this one right here is almost the ultimate in viral video achievement (at least for the rest of the day).

Update: We may have a contender in terms of the pinnacle of adorable-overload viral videos.
