Musician Flying Lotus has made a career for himself crafting music that others may deem so far off the beaten path it’s practically wilderness. It makes sense then that his music videos tread that same razor’s edge between visually entertaining and flat-out, batshit crazy.
I present you with two examples of his music video craziness.

I found this link to a supposed parody / mashup of every 1990s TV ad aimed at children and families. True enough, it’s got the cheesy dialogue, the neon-colored wardrobes, the crappy lighting, the over-emphasized sound effects, even the cliched mother giving that all-knowing smirk that’s ’90s code for “Aww, those darn kids.”

What this Philippines-based band does is lend musicality to a decidedly nihilistic view of relationships. What with sultry female vocals, Japanese spoken word phrases, toned-down pseudo trap beats, and the cold clammy virtual instrumentation, this is a sarcastic response to every cheesy February 14 aphorism you’ve ever heard.

It all started quite “innocently.” Found a link to what was supposedly a weird Japanese “bikini game show” where six buxom Japanese babes in bikinis (Gravure idols, all of them) find a cute little Daruma doll and end up playing a game of red light/green light. They sashay and bounce around, showing off their fine assets, until, the game becomes strangely sinister. Watch the video because otherwise you’ll never believe what happens next.

The prehistoric age gave us cave paintings. The Renaissance gave us oil paintings, tempera, and more. The 20th century gave us performance art, multimedia. But it’s the internet that gave us the animated GIF. And artists like Scorpion Dagger have elevated it to a beautifully ludicrous pinnacle by using Renaissance paintings as source material for […]

Just a quick one for today. Apparently, eating your own hair (plus hair you find on the carpet) isn’t good for your digestive system. Unless you’re a cat. But if you’re an 18-year-old teenage girl in Kyrgystan, and you get stomach pains and can’t eat or even drink. It might be because the nine-pound hairball […]

Every now and then, you come across something on the internet that makes you go: “What the hell were they smoking?” Which could mean that piece is either so bad it’s good, or so ‘out there’ it’s in outer space, or simply so inconceivable as to be brilliant. Memory Hole is all of the above.
