I'm still in the process of translating this (I speak Japanese), but I thought I would post this here in case anyone else might think this is funny.

Funny. Scaring, but funny. Well, probably mostly scaring.
But still funny.

I wonder if Japanese listeners understand it all the way...
ある日ふと目についた二本そろった矢印マーク
One day, I saw two arrow symbols,

なぜだか見ているだけで楽しくなっちゃうしろものさこれは一体なんでろう？
Why on earth after seeing them did it all become so fun?

I heard on Wikipedia that it is a symbol to represent large numbers,

called the fourth hyperoperation, really, wow, I see!

Put numbers together, again and again and again and again and again and again...

テテトテトテーテトテトレーション↑↑
te-teto-te-teto-Tetration!

unlocks the hidden magical power of small numbers,

みんな重ね合わせれば大きくなれる
if everyone is together, then we become greater. [shows 3^3^3]

とある日に道端でアリさんたちを見つけたよ大きなごはんのまわりに
Then one day, I found miss Ari around a big rice ball,

たくさん群がってきている何をしているんだろう？
having lots of grains, but what are they doing?

I heard it was to carry the food to miss Ari.

The wisdom of the beast made a wall appear, [wall appears]

and just when I thought I couldn't do it...

Put hands together, again and again and again...
[she clones herself twice]

テテトテトテーテトテトレーション↑↑
te-teto-te-teto-Tetration!

The power of each is small, way beyond the limit, but

みんな重ね合わせれば大きくなれる
if everyone is together, then we become greater.

[happy dance]

There are things you just can't do alone

でもそこに仲間がいるから
but because you have friends,

こころを重ねて重ねて重ねて重ねて...
Feel with your heart, again and again and again...

テテトテトテーテトテトレーション↑↑
te-teto-te-teto-Tetration!

if you can do something from the heart

どんなに高い壁が立ちはだかっても仲間たちがいるから越えて行ける
then you will succeed regardless of the difficulty ahead.

テテトテトテーテトテトレーション↑↑
te-teto-te-teto-Tetration!

is to help each other out and save energy.

If you're alone, you might fall over, so

みんな重なり合って大きくなろう
Let's get together, and then become greater.

Put hands together, again and again and again...

LOL, thanks Andy! This is surely the most bizarre text I've read since long, and -whyever- has even some positive vibe in it.

A very strange sort of fun!

Thanks -

I also just found this, which might shed some light on the background behind this video: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utau.
I can't believe somebody made a song about Tetration!!! And in Japanese, no less!!!
