Lightninglouie posted this video as a reply to another post and as a result it isn't as a visible as it deserves to be. It does the video a disservice to over-explain it, so suffice it to say that it ostensibly begins as a spoof of 80s sitcom intros, stretches out a very thin joke, and then just gradually derails into pure hypnotic madness. The video is 12 minutes long, so it requires a little bit of time to actually sit through (if you can make it all the way) but once you get to the end you realize just how ingenious it is. The video rewards you with repeated viewings as well, since it is so densely packed with references and the disturbing realization that the deranged presence who emerges in the video has been there all along.

This is the creation of writer/director Casper Kelly who made this demented masterpiece for Adult Swim as part of their 4 AM, Infomercials slot. I cannot imagine what it must have been like to see this at that time of day, alone, and possibly high.


Just want to add a disclaimer to anyone who might be sensitive to disturbing images of violence. You may want to steer clear of this. Also, be warned: the theme song will get stuck in your head and you will probably be singing it all day and well into the night where it will haunt your very dreams.
