Just yesterday, Trendhunter featured the viral video of an incredible treadmill-running shrimp. The video shows a shrimp running on an underwater treadmill to the tunes of Benny Hills theme song. Impressive!

More impressive? The numerous alternative soundtracks burned to the same video. Fifty-eight of them at the time of this posting!

Final Countdown | Sexy Back | Curtis Mayfield | Rap Song | Some Other Song

The remixes are definitely hilarious but it makes me wonder about the people who took the time to make them -- how much time do they have on their hands?
