"Ninja Works It" was originally created late in October by thenixfactor and became one of the most popular sites on YTMND. It showed a ninja breakdancing to the song "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" by Daft Punk. The site subsequently ushered in the first dancing fad on YTMND: Various spinoffs were created showing other people dancing. The song was also featured in the moderator's favorite " ".
"Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" was included on Volume 2 of the YTMND Soundtrack. The original image will be used as the cover for Volume 13.

The actual ninja in this animation is taken from a 1984 Atari, Apple II/e game called Karateka designed by Jordan Mechner of Prince of Persia fame. The title is derived from a Japanese word meaning 'practitioner of karate'.
