    $\begingroup$ It's late and so my sense of humour is quickly fading, but might the answer be "CRISS CROSS! Everybody clap your hands!" ? (I'll see myself out...) $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Feb 27 at 4:19
  • $\begingroup$ Does the middle always refer to the same thing? $\endgroup$ – Dr Xorile Feb 27 at 6:04
  • $\begingroup$ @DrXorile Yes, each unique directional basically refers to the same thing. $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Feb 27 at 10:35

    $\begingroup$ @El-Guest I thought the exact same thing - especially with the lyrics "Right foot 2 stomps" = double-right but alas, the rest doesn't fit $\endgroup$ – Elpharya Feb 27 at 18:29

The next sequence is

Top, Middle, Bottom, Up-Right, Down-Left The instructions are components of a seven-segment-display readout. The numbers being spelled out are digits of pi (thus the title) , and the next digit is 2

This is illustrated by

Fire (3 rockets from fully loaded rocket launcher) !

Details:

That pattern looks exactly like a player playing Unreal Tournament 3. More exactly, it's circling a target while dodging damage. Except the rest of the standard movements, the double one is the double jump which can be used to evade damage. During the time the maneuvers are performed, the player loads its rocket launcher so it can shoot 3 rockets at the target (or the goo gun/Bio-Rifle, same thing, still requires time to fully load it's secondary mode).

  • $\begingroup$ I had to lookup Unreal Tournament 3 on YouTube. Looks like it might be fun, but I didn't base my question on it and don't really understand how it applies. $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Feb 27 at 10:34
  • $\begingroup$ All the things in your initial posting are the movements done (directional keys used)by any players playing that game. The Double-Right is called a combo (pressing right twice fast) and makes you dodge-jump in that direction. it works in any direction. Using such a dodge in a single direction is good for circling an enemy while evading its return fire. This is just something that perfectly fits the answer since no specific context was initially stated. Although all the others work in most FPSs, the dodge / double jump combo is specific to UT. $\endgroup$ – Overmind Feb 27 at 11:30
