I still have this tune stuck in my head, since 20 minutes after he posted this thing.

It pleases me to no end that lately he seems to be returning to, and refining, his animutation roots.

Needs more Adrian Brody.

You know, I'm generally down for whatever Neil Cicierga does, but... what?

I was going to criticize this, but then I watched all of the way until the end and my IQ decreased by 40 points and now it's all good. Maybe I'll watch it again.

A sick part of me wishes my boss had walked in while I was watching this, because then I would have had all the fun of trying to explain myself

Thank you! That was very educational!

Disappointing, I thought this would be a Brody Jenner update.

Cicierega knows how to grab Internet fame and keep it. LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE and Chocolate Rain are one trick ponies, but Cicierega has adapted with the times. He could have latched on to his animutations of 2001 and faded into obscurity, but here he is in 2010, new shtick, new content. I'm a fan.

As usual, Neil is just slightly behind the times. The big star meme these days is Keanu Reeves.

And this should have been Yugioh. You gotta keep up with the kids, Neil!

But seriously, I loved it. Except one problem: The Pathfinder was out of scale.

I'd say Cicierega is really more the solid rock band that endures for decades (of internet fame) rather than the pop star who has a meltdown and disappears from the public eye. He doesn't become a massive meme, but instead is like a midrange compact fluorescent bulb, irradiating the room with just enough light to read by for years to come.

Oh my god. It just hit me. Neil Cicierega is the Weird Al Yankovic of the internet.

Adrien Brody walks as jauntily as that AT ALL TIMES. Fact.

I was hoping BrodyQuest was a Flash game where I had to reunite my hero with his indy romantic comedy script. This was still acceptable.

I watched this video again. I watched Lady Gaga's new music video. I liked this better.

Lady Gaga, think of all the kids you could have fed with the money you spent on that 9 minute short film. Neil probably didn't even spend any money on this. I'm disappointed in you. See me after class.

You know, I've watched this video at least ten times today, and I'm increasingly convinced that Matt Smith can go fuck himself; this video, repeated on a loop for 45 minutes at a time, broadcast weekly, should have comprised the entirety of the new season of Doctor Who.
