play them again for you? – No! (laughs) – You sure you didn’t make them?
– (Finebros snickers) We didn’t make them.
We never make them. (movie reel clicks) – (Finebros) What did
we just have you watch? – I– I have no idea,
but I liked the “doo, doo, doo” part. – Three different types of animals
with two legs running. – I think it’s animal cruelty
to cut an animal in half. – Was somebody humming some music
that sounded like they, you know, “We’re gonna win a medal today.
You know, again tomorrow.” – How much Xanax do you have to eat
to be able to watch something like that? – A horse, an elephant, and a sheep
with just two legs, runnin’. – (Finebros) Did you ever think
you would say that sentence? – (snickering) No, I never did. – (Finebros) Can you sing the song for us?

But it’s funny. It’s so stupid. – (Finebros) What was going
through your mind once you realized we were just going to show you
this over and over again? – Where the hell
are those animals running to? – I don’t know! But– ♪ doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo ♪ ♪ Dee, dee, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh ♪ – It was painful to watch. After the first 15 seconds. Has the internet become that boring? – It goes like this: “Oh my god, that is clever!” Then, “Uh-oh, when’s
this thing going to stop?” And then you realize,
“Oh, this is going to go on a long time. Whoaaa!” – (Finebros) The title
of these videos all start with a word describing how the animal is running. It’s all, “The something running horse. The something running elephant.” What do you think that word is?
– Fast. – Fast Running Horse? – Forever Running Horse? – Two-Legged? – Two-Legged Running Horse? – (Finebros) They call this
the “Retarded Running Horse.” – Aww. – Why is the horse retarded?
Because he’s already half there? – I’m sorry, but that sheep
did not look retarded to me. – (Finebros) Do you think the name fits? – No, because you know what?
That horse was quick! – I don’t think that exactly fits
those poor animals. – How about Retarded Running Director? – Well, you can’t really call
people retarded anymore, so I guess you can do it to animals. – (Finebros) Is it okay
to use the term “retarded”? – Ohhh brother, you want to get into that? – No, I don’t think so. – That’s kind of off the books now. You don’t want to toss that word out. – I don’t think so. I think a better term
would be “two-legged friends”. – Oh boy, you’re asking
the wrong person! (laughs) When I first worked
as a school psychologist, we used to say kids were retarded. Towards the end,
we weren’t allowed to use that term. – It’s been a number of years,
but “retarded” became a bad word. To me, it’s not.
But it became one. – (Finebros) Well, the story here
is that it all started with the horse video, that two-legged horse running to that song. That video, those 30 seconds,
over 50 million views on YouTube. (silence) – Okay. – Boggles the imagination. – I do not understand
this world anymore! (laughs) – (Finebros) So this is something
that we’ve discussed before, the idea of things online
being popular that repeat. Why do you think, in today’s world, people love things that repeat?
– They don’t have anything else to do. – That many people have that low of an IQ. – You’re escaping, you know? You don’t have to think
about your real life. You can watch this thing going on,
and on, and on, and on, and on and don’t have to face your problems. – History Channel, man,
the Military Channel… (sighs) I can watch that stuff
over and over and over again. My wife says, “You’ve seen this 40 times.” I’m going, “It gets better.” – (Finebros) If there
was a version of this horse that just looped forever,
how long could you sit there and watch it?
– Not quite as long as you made me. – Maybe 15 minutes. – I’d probably look at it
for a couple of seconds, get up and go back to my book. – I would say I’d take a few minutes, and that’s about it. But I’d be laughing. – (Finebros) If we’d never showed you this, and you came across it by yourself, could you ever imagine it was popular? – No. – (laughing) No. – Never. – I wouldn’t think they
would be that popular, but it’s stuck in my ♪ no-my-my-
mah-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo ♪ – Given how the world
is whirling in funny ways and being around
the evolution of my sons, yes. – (Finebros) Why
do you think it is so popular? – You don’t really
want me to say this, do you? – (Finebros) Yes, I do. – It’s just… I don’t know.
Maybe they’re a little retarded. (Finebros snickers) – (Finebros) So how does it make you feel that this is something that over
50 million people wanted to watch? – That I’m out of it. Either that, or they’re out of it. No! They’re out of it. (laughs) – There can’t be
50 million people that stupid. – Anything that makes people laugh…
enjoy themselves… is a good thing. – (Finebros) So two questions
to wrap us up: first, what animal would you like
to see running around on two legs? – A tiger. – Anteater. – Kangaroo. – A pussy cat. – A Gila monster. – A dog. A cheetah. A giraffe. A coyote. Even a person! Make them without any arms
and just running with two legs. – (Finebros) And finally,
will you now go home and look up more retarded running animal videos?
– No! (giggles) – No. – No! – You got me stuck on this now.
I gotta check it out. – I have no interest!
This is it. You filled me up.
I know what it is. I have other things to do in life. – Thank you for watching
this episode of Elders React. – We’ll be back real soon though,
so make sure you’re subscribed. – See you guys. Peace out. – Good bye. (giggles) – ♪ Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh,
