L'Brondelle's Universe—I'd describe it as Tim and Eric with the Dada-meter cranked way up. SLYT

No, that's L'Brondelle. With an e. An extra one. At the end. And that makes all the difference. L'Brondell doesn't have the cool Video Toaster scene-change effects; he just has his cameraman put his hand in front of the lens between scenes. Much better production values here, and L'Brondelle-with-an-e-an-extra-one-at-the-end much more resembles a younger Harry Shearer. Because L'Brondell-without-an-e-an-extra-one-at-the-end doesn't have a mustache. Of course, L'Brondell's milk drinking scene is better without the mustache, but otherwise L'Brondelle is far superior.

It has ALOT taken from Chris Morris and the fantastic BRASS EYE.

Yes! Brass Eye! Let's all watch Brass Eye now instead. Anyone have a link?

More Brass Eye: Bad AIDS. Entire episodes appear to be available online, of which the crown jewel is of course Paedogeddon. (both extremely NSFW, of course)

Actually, though, I don't think it's quite as big a rip off of Brass Eye as all that. It has some Look Around You and (as per the FPP) Tim and Eric public-access-esque weirdness (Fact!) mixed in there too. (Anyway, I laughed; thanks for posting.)

Really bizarre - that link is supposed to go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-x068o6Wtw4.

I'd describe it as I would any other tethered vegetable dangling from a flagpole at night.

I mean, I see the relation to Brass Eye (he talks a little about the influences that went into this one in the comments), but... so? I wish this FPP went a little more in-depth into the kinds of things this guy is doing. This is the first I've heard of him, but after a few minutes of looking at his stuff:

I want his equipment.

Miususe of Sesame Street.
Some less ironically interesting music and animation.
A trailer for a film that would simultaneously be a too-close parody of modern rom-coms and a movie I would watch.
And, well, just kind of a lot of different stuff.

Haha, oh man, DDP is finally doing things with his internet money. I met that guy, I saw his C64 which he used to edit videos and his game boy camera. That man is the most legitimate artist I have ever met.

This is just amazing. Sometimes T&E go way over my head, but I could probably tolerate watching this on a weekly basis - perhaps at a set time on basic cable channel.

Look closely. The picture of Jesus doesn't exist. And the jewels are a knife. And the knife is a gun.

Oh man, the more I watch this the funnier it gets... especially the "look again" sequence.

@tmc

the joke is that the people are ugly

I'm not going to lie to you; I would watch the holy crap out of that show. And love it, just as I love Look Around You. And also Tim and Eric.

Thanks, L'Brondelle. Throndelle.

In the related vids - I never ever ever ever ever wanna hear Clint Howard talking about his hemorrhoids again. NEVER.

Can someone explain this? I loved this clip but I'm not familiar with the guy.

He won $10,000 to buy video editing computer stuff and now he's using it.

So that's what David Arquette has been up to.

I didn't see the second part, about the Milk, until today. When he poured the second bottle of milk, I completely lost it.

This was brilliant.
