Imperial Alpacas

Have arrived and are going to sniff this situation out.

Just stand still and they should pass over you in a second.

They only travel in a massive, sniffing mob, Nancy A. Snorf.



  1. I’m sorry, but those are clearly *zombie* alpacas.

  2. neptune says:

    Excellent use of music! 😀

  3. BRA-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-ANS!

  4. 260Oakley says:

    Going to eat out today?
    No, I think I’ll-Packa lunch.

  5. Katrina says:

    When God made alpacas he was clearly laughng his *** off.

  6. Suzanne says:

    OMG…the music totally makes this clip!

  7. Did I just type “brans”? DURRRR!

  8. Dude, it’s not like they need the fiber.

  9. Christine H says:

    The Star Wars music totally made that video.

  10. How cute yet utterly creepy all at the same time….

  11. “You don’t need to see his identification.”


    “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”


    “He can go about his business.”


    “Move along.”


  12. Erebella says:

    Oh wow – The Alpacial March – how totally awesome! Would insert a perfect Spaceballs quote here, but can’t remember it well enough.

  13. That actually was a little scary..

    And those aren’t Alpacas! Those are clearly Samoyed dogs, geez…:P

    NTMTOM, Here, have some breakfast. *passes you a bowl of bran flakes*

  14. marie_n says:

    this is a video from the 80s and obviously it was a humid day because their fluffy bangs have gone so very flat.

    one of them actually looks like a lady that works for my company, in the part that sits in a room at a desk answering phones and is never actually seen by our customers. thank goodness, because she has the flat fluffy bangs and looks like a football demolished her face like that one episode of the brady bunch. “oh my nose!”

  15. Erebella says:

    Did anyone watch the Ode to Joy video in there with Beeker from the Muppets??? Omigod, that’s funny!

  16. Brak_Silverbone says:

    If aliens ever come to Earth, I hope they land in a field full of alpacas, and I hope this is the first thing they see approaching their shiny silver spaceship.

  17. claudia says:


    lol that was cute and funny 😀

  18. I lurve Alpacas! When I grow up, I’m going to start a yarn farm with alpacas, goats, sheep and other assorted fibre bearing cuties (who will then all be spoiled rotten and given CO worthy names. Like Noodles. My next cat shall be named Noodles. Or Pa-sickie.)

  19. I believe I’ve just been gang-disapproved-of . . .

  20. Chasing the Dog says:

    Funny stuff. I love the seizure inducing camera work.

  21. Yessssss, this just made my morning. The inquisitive looks plus the music. Yes!

  22. Dexter Fishmore says:

    Weren’t Like and Han riding these fellas on Hoth?

  23. Dexter Fishmore says:

    Correction: Luke and Han.

    The typing… she no happen so good.

  24. (the original) Mel says:

    You know, the perfect end to that video would have been the cameraman falling to the ground, overwhelmed by the curiosity of the bran-seeking zombie alpacas.

    Zombies need their fiber.


  26. cheesybird says:

    Zombie, bran-eating, alpaca stormtroopers of death.

    Wearing pantaloons.

  27. doomchild says:

    Oh noes, they’re coming for me! I’ll be abducted to their alpaca-land, and they’ll snozzle me everyday and make that humming alpaca-sound and force me to pat their furry heads… Ooo I’m going to heaven, bb!

  28. Katrina says:

    (the original) Mel- with apologies, I have seen the bottom side of alpacas, and well, it is just as well to see the top side of alpacas.
    The photographer saved us all a big EWWWW. Eeeeewww. Think the bottom side of sheep, yeah, that’s it.
    Zombie, bran-eating,filthy-dirty alpaca stormtroopers of death. Thanks again cheesybird.

  29. cheesybird says:

    Don’t forget the pantaloons, Katrina. :p

  30. wow its like something out of a really cute nightmare.

  31. ZBEFDASToDwP are a pretty interested lot, aren’t they? They have serious mob mentality going on there.

  32. Patty P says:

    EEEEEE! Walks!


  33. Dexter, oh yes, except that they were tauntauns:

    Han: “This may smell bad kid, but it’ll keep you warm until I get the shelter up . . . Ugh. And I thought they smelled bad on the *outside*.”

  34. You forgot the dramatic pause, dangster. “Ugh. And I thought they smelled bad . . . on the outside!”

  35. man, when they were walking up at least one of those alpacas looked like WINSTON!

  36. Bagpipe_mouse says:

    “Aren’t you a little fluffy for a storm-trooper?”

  37. Theresa says:

    When the camera goes up in the air over their heads at the end, does that mean that the camera person has been dragged down and over-shnorgled?

  38. warrior rabbit says:

    @erebella, yes, I watched the Ode to Joy (and emailed it to everyone I know), and then followed it with the even more hysterical Habanera. I had tears running down my face. You must watch it.

  39. BitBucket says:

    These are not the droids you are looking for. Move along.

  40. Erebella, is that a stash of new Muppet material? I hadn’t seen any of that before!!!
    “Meep meep meep meep”

  41. BeanSidhe says:

    To quote Robin Willams…
    “Tom Waits once said there’s no devil. It’s just God when he drinks. So if God drinks, do you think he ever gets stoned once in a while? Look at a platypus. I think after that you’d think he might.”

    So alpacas are proof that God stays up too late playing Gears of War?

  42. Gail (the first one) says:

    @Erebella and warrior-rabbit: LOL!!! Thanks for the links!!

  43. LOLpacas

  44. llama llama ding dong! XD

  45. LesbianNeoCon says:

    That was probably the funniest thing I’ve ever seen here!!! SUPERB!!!

  46. OMG I watched it without the music and thought I was watching a horror movie. It could do with some soundtrack from The Shining or even Jaws, though Star Wars does work very nicely.

  47. NTM kind of took my thunder on this one, but my caption would be:

    “These aren’t the fuzzy sweaters you are looking for.”

    FWIW. Great vid.

  48. They should audition for the next Star Wars film, hahahahah! 😉

  49. “…Something, Something, Darkside… Something, Something, Complete…”

  50. OOh-Oooh, I went to the link and played around and found a few Muppet Classical music renditions. Thn catch the Valencia School choir doing Bach and more. Very well done.

    Thread hijack is anyone else’s dog ‘throwing his.her coat” now? How long does this last? We brush and we brush and we brush…there is enough on there for another dog! OR, is that the point?
    Back to Alpacas, which were put here to amuse and warm us all. The humming is ‘just too too’. Imagine if alpacas did that, no I can’t right now, I’m up to my ankles in Corgi.

  51. Yes, cheesybird, ‘pantaloons of fury’.

  52. marie_n says:

    katrina you need the furminator. srsly.

  53. Katrina says:

    marie_n, oh, please, speak to me of furminator-is it a Zen mind-set, a yoga stance or an appliance? pphtpthtptpthp!

  54. marie_n says:

    katrina – it’s a brush that gets the most hair off of a dog/cat/whatever ev-ar. they’re somewhat costly but well worth it if you have a furbaby that sheds like crazy.

  55. Paunchie says:

    Did anybody else notice their KNEES???!!! Omgosh. And, how can they see? Are they just following their noses? I bet that person had a big thing of alpaca kibble.

  56. Katrina another little trick that gets a ton of the hair out is to bathe the dog and then brush or comb you get tons out that way too. I guess when the hair is wet it clumps better or something because you get a good 70 % of it out in one fell swoop. but plan on having to brush for a good half hour. Also the furminator is excellent when they are in shed mode

  57. I for one welcome our wooly overlords.

  58. Katrina says:

    We’ll just keep an eye out for you, jenjen-if you get into trouble, use the CO sign!

  59. Katrina says:

    Annie- and marie_n–thanks, I can’t bathe her alone- I guess it is grooming time. The last time the groomer was really nasty and even said”There was enough fur for another dog!” Time for a new groomer, I guess. Why wouldn’t she know that the puppeh as doing her annual Corgi-as-carpet thing? The Vet says Abbey’s perfectly healthy, she just has a LOT of fur, even for a Corgula.
    I remember one of our peeps calling it Corgi-tweed-yes, that is just what it is, it is like plaster dust- it gets everywhere! Time for a grooming! Thanks everyone for my hijacking.

  60. Dig the Alpaca invasion! More please. Where’s parts 2 and 3?

  61. omg… love the star wars music.

  62. Hand me the clippers AND RUN FOR YOUR LIIIIIIIIIVES!

  63. marie_n says:

    katrina- my beagle is named abbie. howwww adorable! she was shedding like mad when we first got her but that was all out of anxiety i believe, but she knew she’d been rescued from people that didn’t want her and she loved us so it was ok. she’s doing fabulous now and she is as healthy as a mini-horse. i’m glad your abbey is doing well and i hope that you do a little research on the furminator because it seems like you’d get some good use out of it.

  64. Yay for disapproving alpacas!

  65. Katrina says:

    phtpthtuppthtppttht- we’re still pthtutthhttpy here! Thanks for the thhtpopughhtpsttht thoughts.

    I’m gonna get the doggeh groooooooomed.

    Next year, in the Furminator!
    Or is that “Next year in Jerusalem”? She’ll shed just as much over there. (Jewish joke-sorry to leave anyone out-every year at new year we say that we all want to be in Jerusalem the next year for the new year holiday-it’s a sentimental solidarity thing, I guess).

  66. That is so funny. Love the Music!
