Y’all remember Animals, right? It was the first episode of Off the Air, a new series that first appeared inexplicably on Adult Swim during the wee morning hours of New Years Day 2011. This, the aptly titled Food, is the second in the series as conceived/edited by Dave Hughes and produced by Keith Crofford and Mike Lazzo. Our favorite portion kicks off at 7:15 where a datamoshed wave of meat lifts off towards some Cyriak (as seen previously here) past an unsettling breathing apple and drops you gently inside MORPHOLOGIC‘s Oyster Vision (they’re the dudes who kindly introduced us to The Lynx Nudibranch). Don’t click away when the credits roll as the ridiculousness of ‘Ketchup’ provides some bonus lulz. Enjoy the weirdness!
A regular reader of the site, alex, was kind enough to email us the contents of a personal bookmarks folder he curated named ‘trippy shit man’. This video was included in those links and, let me assure you, he categorized it correctly. My favorite part is definitely the skiing ostriches.
Originally broadcast on January 1st, 2011 between 4:00 and 4:30am (on the reliably awesome [ adult swim ]) Animals is a strange visual journey indeed. Ten points if you spot the Cyriak. You’ll also find Blockhead‘s excellent video for their tune ‘The Music Scene’ in there which was posted here in full HD back in October. So definitely check that out if you haven’t watched it yet.
Thanks again, alex!
