4 minutes and 23 seconds of baby pandas wrestling

This vid puts the overload in Overload. It goes on and on and on with these twin, lumbering panda toddlers, wrestling with each other. There's a giggling Japanese audience in the background. Do we love it? HEI!

I coulda taken 30 seconds, but this is The Overload, so there you go.

So, that was so adorable that my heart just peed. Yeah, I'm serious. I'm almost comatose from the overdose of cuteness.

 |  Dec 15, 2007 at 10:48 PM

I'm so sleepy right now, and this is so cute, am I dreaming? I can barely tell. I hope these guys end up in my dreams once I drift off. Ultimate de-stresser, that was.

Barely bearable... soooo cute!!!!

 |  Dec 15, 2007 at 10:50 PM

I think the thing that makes pandas so cute is their butt. They're very "un-butt-like." They're just so damned round and soft-looking, like a stuffed animal's butt.

I must have a panda bear for Christmas.

The attempted pounces were really funny. They looked like two giant teddy bears trying to wrestle. I felt bad for the one that seemed to inexplicably end up on his head a few times.

 |  Dec 15, 2007 at 11:15 PM

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww now thats just so darn cute. They couldn't even get in good hits. They just kept falling back or tumbling forward. :)

 |  Dec 15, 2007 at 11:29 PM

Pudgy pandas play as pleased peeps praise their precious patooties, Ahn!

 |  Dec 15, 2007 at 11:44 PM

that looks like the cuddliest wrestling match ever, i just want to run in there and hug them
and SO MANY somersaults!

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 12:41 AM

I can't decide if they look like a new weight class of sumo wrestlers or really drunk boxers.

Or maybe just a pair of Weeble Wables. They will fall over but they won't fall down.

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 01:28 AM

OMG... Baby Panda Wrestling FTW!!

pounce pounce pounce!

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 01:38 AM

Too bad the beginning of the tape was missing. You know, the part where they stomp their feet, fling handfuls of salt to the ground ...

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 05:00 AM

There are no pandas in Japan. The audience is almost certainly Chinese.

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 05:14 AM

Andy - pandas live in zoos all over the world. Also, the audience is speaking Japanese. Also, if you follow the link to youtube, it says right there that these pandas are in Japan.

But about the cute: omg. I watched all four minutes (chin in hands, elbows on desk) and could have watched 10 or 15 more. LOVE.

This first rule of Panda Club: there is no Panda Club.

Two pandas enter, one panda leaves!

The cute! The cute! Eeeet eees tooo moishe.

For those who'd like a daily dose of teh panna qte, Zhen-Zhen, the cubbie at the San Diego zoo stars daily on their panda cam. She's just barely started to toddle and her antics with mom are almost more unbearably cute than should be legal! http://www.sandiegozoo.org/zoo/ex_panda_station.html

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 06:25 AM

This is a little scary but the look on the panda's face at the end made me laugh like crrrazy...


 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 06:29 AM

sooo adorable! what a perfect way to start my Sunday.

(ummm....i think you meant 'Hai!', yes?)

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 07:11 AM

OMG could that have been cuter and funnier!?!?! No. It could not. LOVE the uncoordinated wrestling match.
And does anyone else think that pandas are related to Popples? They clearly have no bones.

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 07:30 AM

Sooo slow-motion! They're like puppies- they want to fight, but they don't have much control over, well, anything of their bodies!!

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 07:52 AM

4 mins? I can watch these roly-poly babies do this for 4 hours! *sigh* Is there anything on this Earth cuter than baby pandas?

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 08:08 AM

For your consideration:

I think we should have a special category for cuteness from Japan. Maybe it should be called "Kawaii"?

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 08:31 AM

The somersaults did me in. Rolllll over....rolllll over....

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 09:41 AM

that one was all....eh eh when it felld over on its widdle head. Wanna snuggle wid the cudlys.

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 09:59 AM

the terror! the carnage! the brutality of vicious pandas!!!!


barfing up rainbows over heah.

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 10:14 AM

People, I think we have discovered the ORIGIN OF SUMO WRESTLING!!!1! Call the press!

Also, I second the addition of a "Kawaii" category. Considering how many of Meg's posts start off with "The Japanese are handing our asses to us AGAIN..." :D

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 11:23 AM

Wow! That's a lot of activity for pandas. Usually they are all like, can't be bothered to get off de coushe. "Hey, could you hand me that remote? Oh, and pass me some of those bamboo stalks while you're at it? *nam nam nam* Oh, and could you get the light switch when you leave. Thanks!"

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 12:34 PM

ohhh... PWEASE can I get in there and ressle with them? PWEEEEEASE??? I promise to look out for their clawsies.

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 01:21 PM

Could anything make that better? I think not... oh wait... if the Rocky theme song was playing in the background. Such an overload of cute. Ehn!

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 05:04 PM

Santa is bringing me one of these for christmas. Or two of these.

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 07:27 PM

The human version.

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 08:38 PM

SQUEEEEEEEE!!! Roly poly bebeh pandas!!!

I think they look even cuter because their white bottoms look like diapers!


 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 09:14 PM

When scientists figure out how to keep pandas babies forevarz, I want one.

This was DEF. overload. :D

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 09:22 PM

i think it's already been pointed out, but i think it's supposed to be "hai" if its romanized Japanese.

 |  Dec 16, 2007 at 10:09 PM

Heh, looks like their biggest challenge is working with that enormous noggin.

Meanwhile, if this were an Olympic sport, I would totally start watching the Olympics again.

 |  Dec 17, 2007 at 06:16 AM

Thirty seconds? At the fifteen second mark my teeth started to ache from all the sweet cuteness and I had to hit the stop button. :)


 |  Dec 17, 2007 at 06:49 AM

Pandas are proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy!

This video is proof that cute is universal and everyone laughs in the same language!

*adjusts glasses* "Yes" is "Hai"...and a "so desu yo" would be a good addition to that.

 |  Dec 17, 2007 at 09:59 AM

WWE, WWF, Whateve.

 |  Dec 17, 2007 at 11:24 AM
