A good song is often a good story told in music. This could easily be an episode of The Twilight Zone. I think the style of animation in this video goes well with the song.
If people are going to dance to the 80's song 99 Red Balloons by Nena which is about nuclear war accidentally being set off, they might as well also dance to this.
The song's author Dana Lyons recounts the story of how the song became popular on cowswithguns.com.
