Wow. It started off as, "Ha ha, Reagan dubbed in Spanish," and then...

It was glorious.

Looking forward to the '30s coming back, too. Ten more years, eh?

Ah yes, nothing beats a fresh Hitler Youth bob and a stiff pair of horsehide jackboots on a Monday morning.

Nice, the tiled extermination shots made me giggle like mad for some reason.

Just to pick nits - An autoregressive series with a decaying lag period just approaches zero. It doesn't ever get there, and certainly doesn't go negative.

some people will say anything to avoid wearing the winter jumpsuit.

The sound effect in the last 15 seconds could have been done without, but otherwise awesome. :)

That was truly brilliant.

Also, covering the oceans in a thick layer of concrete would be very bad, but then again sometimes you let logic slide for comedy.

I'd watch the hell out of a Doctor Who episode that featured this story.

Oh my god, that just kept getting exponentially more surreal. I would like two vials of whatever substance this person has been ingesting.

sexyrobot :some people will say anything to avoid wearing the winter jumpsuit.

Actually, I kinda liked the jumpsuit.

No clue at all about what the thing at the left represented, though... Some kind of tree with a giant furry blue caterpillar wrapped around the top?

Yeah, but just think of how easily you could find a parking spot!

That was superb. Was that John Galliano being executed first?

Meh. In Quebec, they've known about it for years and have slowly been preparing the population with vast quantities of a suitable anaesthetic.

Paving the oceans would remedy the giant plastic vortex.

Loved it. I always wondered what would make people in the future wear those jumpsuits, and now I know. Maybe we can get our flying cars by starting a supposition that ants are getting bigger and bigger each year.

It's funny because it's true.

This was our chance to go with a standardized silver jumpsuit. But no, they had to ruin that dream as well.

I remember being warned of this eminent catastrophe years ago, but I didn't listen.

Yeah, I scanned that quickly and thought "mmm...beer." The Spanish didn't even register.

Ralph didn't like that video until they talked about doing away with all fashion designers.

The fashion cycle catching up with itself wouldn't cause a paradox that destroys the universe. It would be the Fashion Singularity. No one can predict what it will look like, but it will certainly be wonderful.

Not if it stops at that powder-blue short-sleeved polyester jumpsuit from the 70's my dad still keeps in his closet...

I've been wearing a soviet flight suit, a 20lb onesie, from the Kruschev era pretty much every day this winter. I wonder if I'm tapping into something? Or more likely, it's tapping into me...

Are the subtitles inaccurate? Deliberately? I'm not sure I could cope with it being even funnier!

Coveralls! Finally a solution to my lack of pockets!

No, but the castilian accent is pretty damn funny.
posted by joedan at 3:15 PM on March 11, 2010


the accent and the tone of the voice are reminiscent of franco's

also the sporting the gijon scarf makes this go beyond awesome. Coming from a real oviedo supporter, this is saying a lot.
