Ha. This video is awesome:


In one of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books there's a guy and it's always raining everywhere he goes, and he's pathologically depressed because of it, and he keeps a journal of everywhere he travels just so he can show people and they can check it that yes, it always, always rains wherever he is. Then at the end of one chapter it briefly switches to the point of view of the rainclouds, and it turns out that they regard this guy as a sort of rain god, and the best way they can think of to show their love for him is to follow him everywhere he goes and shower their rain down upon him. This video sort of reminds me of that.
