Yes. Saw it on Niconico douga.

FYI is has no dialog so there's no issue with watching it raw.

It's surrealist CG animation, with a sort of groteque/cute aesthetic and a really really black sense of humor (like a lot of Japanese CG for some reason).
Also the sound effects are very amusing.

It has a strange continuity to it. It's mainly about 2 rabbits sharing a jail cell, and the eps are 5 minutes long or so, but there is a sort of ongoing continuity... Just be prepared to get somewhat disturbed.

I would not call it "funny" in a normal sense.

Yes! Anime hyper

Usavich. More info.

Man, this is just hilarious! They even try to speak in Russian!

Actually, it is frigging strange for a franchise like Usavich to top below Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. It's more like a hit story than "AAAA" substance story, yet it is darn funny, especially if one is opened to comedic gags.
