Epic Sax Guy was a meme that appeared on the internet shortly after the Eurovision Song Contest in 2010. Taking the shortest of middle-8 loops from the Moldovan song entry and looping it for 10 hours on youtube is possibly the most evil thing anyone has ever done on the internet.
Our boss has this 10 hour loop running on mute and randomly unmutes it for us all to “enjoy” at various intervals during the workday. In fact I’m entirely convinced 26 million of the 27 million views the loop has received on youtube come from him.
