    Is Shockwave Flash plugin installed on your computer? SWF files require Flash to display, that's why your browser is unable to open it and then redirect to (personally I hate this "user-friendly" redirection.)
    You can use Windows Media Player 7 to view these pages - download it from
    After the installation, IE will show you Flash files with any problem.
    It's worth your troubles to view this funny site.
