I’ve been a fan of Neil Cicierega since I was in junior high school. When I was 13 and the trendy thing was to be “soooo random,” his unique brand of content fit the bill long before content was the capital-C Content of 2016. He’s the guy who did Potter Puppet Pals, for crying out loud. That was formative for me and so many of my peers.
This thing that he just released today, though… I don’t know if I can call it “formative.” I don’t know if I can call it anything. You just have to watch it.
Yes, it is all four Alvin and the Chipmunks films reduced to half speed and layered on top of one another. Certainly, art can be confusing and it is absolutely subjective, but this video — “T R I P M U N K S” — is leaving even me speechless and concerned. This is unlike any art I’ve ever seen. What about you?
If you need to relax or hallucinate or maybe if you just really love the Chipmunks, watch this. This isn’t the first time those rascally ‘munks have been used to further the appeal of someone’s brand and it won’t be the last.
