It's called Andersson's Opening.  Basicallyit's whites way of saying he wants to be black. also it opens up the queenside bishop along the a2 g8 diagonal and stops black from playing things like Ruy Lopez.

white wants to be black? is this bizarro world?

I can't remember exactly but I remember reading it was essentially a waiting move by white.

 wait so you mean that the opponent is going to change their move according to your move? then what would be the best move without getting a piece cornered?

It’s a mean move , it’s trying to lull you into a false sense of security.
