    "Too Many Cooks" Might Be The Most Bizarre Thing You'll Ever See

    Also contains the catchiest song in the world. Slightly NSFW.

    If you happen to be awake at 4 a.m. and watching Adult Swim, you'll come across Too Many Cooks, a 12-minute parody that turns '80s and '90s television intros on their head.

    The short is a creation from Squidbillies writer Chris "Casper" Kelly.

    At first, you're like, "Oh. An old-school TV sitcom intro. OK."

    Adult Swim

    But then, you'll realize that the intro keeps going...

    Adult Swim

    ...and going...

    Adult Swim

    ..and going...

    Adult Swim

    ...and going...

    Adult Swim

    ...and... going...

    Adult Swim

    And then it gets unbelievably bizarre...

    Adult Swim

    And horrifying.

    But the intro sequence DOES. NOT. STOP.

    That's right. The entire short is one LONG ASS INTRO:

    Panic attacks:

    I made it 2/3rds of the way through TOO MANY COOKS and started to have a panic attack. Will resume watching sometime tomorrow.

    A topic of conversation 20 years from now:

    In 20 years, everyone's going to be recalling where they were when they first saw Too Many Cooks.
