Too Many Cooks

    This thing is amazing. It's an 11-minute send up of 1980s/90s opening credit scenes, in which a serial killer stalks cast members, a furry puppet tries to blow up the world, and the whole thing turns into a nightmarish hell for all involved.
    Including the people who watch it, after listening to the sappy "Too many cooks, too many cooks ..." theme song looped over and over. My wife is ready to throw the remote through the TV every time it comes on. Adult Swim is playing it regularly since it's gone viral.
    Here's a pretty good breakdown of it, with the video embedded:


    The most incredible part of this is that an 11-minute video took the better part of a year to make. There's about 50 extras crammed into there, a couple of effects scenes, some animation, the works.

    Never heard of it.

    But if I had, I would say you've pretty much spoiled most of the plot surprises that made it go viral.

    If I hadn't, you might not make it past the first four minutes. The theme song is an incredibly annoying ear worm. There's so much going on, too, that it helps to know what to be on the lookout for.

    It was pretty smart to throw the topless chick in there about the time people might have checked out.

    The living room set reminds me of the Married With Children set. Or Everybody Loves Raymond.

    I'm not a 90s kid, but that is genius.
