Yesterday, a video made the rounds in which a montage of porno clips were partially covered up with cute animations, so that suddenly it looked like people were riding ponies and eating delicious sundaes instead of raw dogging it, and cetra. It was deemed safe for work, but the truth is that it was not at all SFW. I don’t know where you work, but I work in my home, by myself, and that video was not safe for my work. Thumbs down, viral marketing executives at Diesel.

I say, if you’re going to cover up explicit sexual content with some colorful animations, don’t be clever about it. Just hire a couple of non-professional actors who look like they might possibly suffer from mental disabilities, put them in thrift store clothes that even the kids in Williamsburg might think twice about wearing, turn it into a music video for “Parisian Goldfish” by Flying Lotus, and have Eric Wareheim of Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job direct it.

And make sure that it’s super not safe for work. SNSFW. Don’t play games.

Sorry, I probably should have warned you about the FLASHING LIGHTS!

  2. So Tim wasn’t involved? I can see why. Jesus H. Christ that was bizarre.

  6. i’d like her to come over here and give me a FRENCH kiss

  7. Wow! What a hysterical video. Can’t show it to anyone though, lol. Sheesh.

  8. I don’t see how they “look like they might possibly suffer from mental disabilities,” they just look like they could use a trip to the dentist. I mean sure, the guy looks kinda creepy, but if you’ve ever seen the Tim and Eric show, this is nothing in terms of creep-o camera staring.

    None of that matters though. What’s really important is that this video be properly credited as the single greatest music video ever produced. Fine work, Wareheim!

    Looks like fun, but a little less fun when 2 white guys make a record and hire a white guy to direct THIS VIDEO.

    welcome to 2009. in that context, i don’t think anyone should be concerned about this kind of content unless they’re a photosensitive epileptic. beyond that, i think the animation was artful, and not meant to “cover up” so much as stylize and build on the performance.

    i dig it. perhaps not for the squeamish…but it takes all kinds, right? if you like this you should also check out wareheim’s vid for major lazer’s “pon de floor” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2nmgcVbfKE&feature=PlayList&p=2213594EC724EAEA&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=2

  11. Eric is a genius….
