The Technoviking was made famous due to a video of a blue-haired girl dancing, then being crashed into by some unruly guy during the Fuckparade 2000 (a techno street-parade in Berlin Germany) which caused the Technoviking to snatch the guy up by his arms and shove him back where he came running from. The Technoviking then pointed at the man and gazed with an extremely fierce glare in his eyes. An aura of fear eminated from the Technoviking, causing the man to step down from the confrontation. The Technoviking then started dancing wildly through the streets after being given water from one of his minions.
The original clip, titled “Kneecam No. 1,” was produced by the German visual artist Matthias Fritsch at the annual street techno festival Fuckparade on July 8th, 2000. According to Matthias, the original intention behind publishing the Kneecam video was to raise the question of its authenticity, since its set-up obscures the border of fiction and documentary genres.
The video above was first uploaded by subrelic on October 10th, 2006. Today the video has over 11 million views. To this day, no one has documented any connection to the real man. Who is he?

In 2009, Mathias and a team of artists curated an installation exhibit titled “Technoviking Archive” in Karlsruhe, Germany, which presented the best of Technoviking remixes, parodies and re-enactments in real life. More recently, the Technoviking Archive released an official compilation of parodies and response videos created by the fans.


  1. the remakes are funny.
    but what interests me more is whether the original guy was drunk,high or totally faking it.

  2. Haha, I was actually thinking about looking the background story about the technoViking, but I always procrastinated the actual thought of doing it. Thanks for the interesting post and also posting the videos on it; posting them saved me quite a bit of searching time. haha.

  3. I remember when I first saw this back in the day. Good times, good times.

  4. Something must be wrong with my internet, I can't get the videos to play. I'll try again later.
