Like Kyle Mooney sketches on SNL, some of the stuff they show on Adult Swim does not click with my sensibilities — I’m with Bob Odenkirk, who thinks that straight-up making people laugh is more challenging than absurdist humor (exception: Andy Kaufman). That “Too Many Cooks” video we posted earlier is the perfect example; a lot of people find it insanely hilarious. I think it’s an 11-minute joke that runs 10 minutes too long.
This Pizza Freaks Unite ad for Totino’s Pizza Rolls from Tim and Eric, which is an actual commercial, is similarly strange, and meant to appeal I can only assume to people that are as baked as the pizza rolls. I’ll give it this, though: It gives me more willies than watching a Tool music video at 3 a.m. Those guys freak me the hell out.
