Deep-Sea Siphonophore ? what the hell is this

This is a video of a deep-sea (770-meters to be exact) siphonophore doing its thing. What is a siphonophore?

" ...an eerily fantastic creature that appears to be a single, large organism, but which is actually a colony of numerous individual jellyfish-like animals that behave and function together as a single entity. The individual units, called zooids, all share the same genetic material and each perform a specialized role within the colony. The best-known siphonophore is the poisonous Portuguese Man o` War."

umm, whatever it is I can almost taste the wasabi and soy sauce from here  . I bet how weird this creature is, the Japanese people will put them all in soy and wasabi ;) No need to be surprising!
