Angry German Kid, also known as Crazy German Kid, Crazy German Guy, PC Lunatic, Keyboard Crusher, and a myriad of other names depending on the version, is amongst the most well-known videos on the internet.
The video depicts a German teenager (ostensibly named Leopold) throwing a massive tantrum whilst playing Unreal Tournament on his computer. He starts out by shoving aside the clutter on the desk, and then pounds the keyboard & mouse and yells at the computer to start, because he wants "TO PLAY THIS FUCKING GAME!!!!!". When it does start, he cackles insanely, before screaming as he embarks on a shooting rampage, and then picks up the keyboard and bashes it against the desk when he wins. Suffice to say, several keys disconnect and he fumbles around trying to stick them back in. During this, he gets killed, prompting him to howl with rage, pick the keyboard up and bash it against the desk again, before finally throwing it down, getting out of his chair and leaving.
