While watching a music video for The Poly Opto’s Bombardis, it jogged my memory of this little gem. According to IMDB, this particular scene was banned from TV. Which makes me wonder, where the hell did I see this as a kid? Part of me wants to believe it was during elementary school. Maybe one of those tapes they shove in during the after school care so kids will sit down and shut up since the 16 year old “counselors” can get back to the more important shit. Like bitching about who stole thire pothead boyfriend or skimming through those totally relevant and interesting articles on “how to look extra hot in bed”(cause just being naked will never be enough ladies! Never!) featured in that new issue of Cosmo they snatched from under the mom’s bed.
This is a little fucked up if you think about. Sure it’s not like this clip is uber gory violence or hardcore pornography, but who shows this to kids? But maybe I’m going too far. I remember this clip being depressing, but I doubt it bummed me out as much as it does now as an adult. Maybe I should be less critical. Who knows? This might be the clip that’s absolutely responsible for my fascination with bizarre, surreal, and totally fucked up movies today! Furthermore, this thing was probably never meant for lil’ chillens. I guess you could say it was a little ahead of it’s time, since nowadays there’s tons of claymation/animation aimed to a purely adult audience. I salute you weird claymation! Thanks for helping to mold me into the bizarre gal I am today.
