After being heads down with launching Wildcard for most of the past week or so, I’ve been debating this morning over whether or not to post this sublime video from Adult Swim. It already has over two million views on YouTube, so it certainly doesn’t need the infinitesimal boost that my blog would give it. But it’s such a bravura piece of off-kilter pop culture satire that I couldn’t resist sharing it. Even at a surprisingly long eleven minutes, unusual for a viral video, “Too Many Cooks” is unusually riveting—I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. In short, it’s genius.
