badger ver. 1 is best known for its synchronized dancing badgers, colorful style, and inane lyrics. The song used is one of TheWeebl's creations.

Reception Edit

Despite its simplicity and total lack of awards on Newgrounds, badger ver. 1 has been a very popular and highly influential video. As of August 2010, it has over 900,000 vews and a review average of 9.1/10. It is also featured in the Flash Portal History and Music Videos collections, and Tom Fulp once called it a "viral hit." this music video was the beginning of a long and illustrious career for TheWeebl, who has had well over a hundred awards since its submission, in addition to a couple of Tank Awards nominations. The "Badger Song" has also become something of a meme, both on and off Newgrounds. One of the backgrounds for songs in the Audio Portal shows a field of badgers dancing, alongside the occasional mushrooms and snake.
