Hilarious! If my memory serves me well, he was a result of a terrible army experiment gone wrong. Dunno why this animation below made me remember of Towelie, but I think it has something to do with that tune “Won’t ya get me down, to funky town” he sang all the time.
Anyhow, concentrate on the red dot in the middle of the .gif right, wait for the counter to drop to zero, and watch the black and white town turn colorful without consuming any illegal substances! Drugs are bad, illusions are awesome!
