Watch this Morbid Adult Swim Infomercial: Unedited Footage of a Bear

+

In the most recent installment of its late night WTF segments, Adult Swim has followed up its iconic “Too Many Cooks” sketch with an ever darker 4:00 AM infomercial dubbed “Unedited Footage of a Bear.” But don’t let the title fool you: nothing about this morbid sequel resembles anything close to a bear, except for maybe the first five seconds. Instead, we’re introduced to Claridryl, a fictional allergy medication with a whole slew of side effects including, but certainly not limited to, drowsiness, aggression, and hallucinations. Afterwards, we embark on a psychological roller-coaster through one user’s experience, wherein her personality splits in half and she suffers a mental breakdown in the midst of a neverending ocean of suburb homes. The creators of this headfuck, Alan Resnick and Ben O’Brien, are both prominent members in downtown Baltimore’s art circuit, which makes total sense if you think about it. Claustrophobic, unsettling, and really just unnecessary, “Unedited Footage of a Bear” is something out of a Freddy Kruger wet dream. We dare you to watch it and come out with your sanity still intact.
