If I see that leek one more time...

The animation is a loop of a scene taken from an anime and the song is a nonsensical verse from an apparently popular Finnish song called Ievan Polkka (sung by the group Loituma). Across the internets, many children use leekspin or a variation of it (perhaps as an avatar), not knowing of its sinister origins. Therefore, asking something like "Hey, isn't that a knock-off from a certain shock site?" can produce instant lulz. The character in question is Orihime Inoue from Bleach, but she is widely known as the Loituma Girl thanks to this animation. The song track is 27 seconds long, and the video is a four frame loop.
Of course, like all good things, this meme was ruined by a ring tone company.
Derived from Meatspin, a popular shock site.
This meme is definitely on the decline due to overexposure, but every once and a while it can cause people to nostalgia now and then.
- Adding the Leekspin Bebo application can produce many lulz, just don't expect any friends.
- Opening leekspin in multiple browser tabs doesn't sound as good as one would think.
- Leeks can taste good in small amounts if prepared properly
