It's from the awesomely surreal 1963 bicycle safety film called "One Got Fat".

Jen - wow, that was quick! Thanks for clueing me in. I knew somebody around here would have the answer.

Sounds positively terrible. Couldn't even make it past the cheesy into...

Marc

An L.A. band called LA Riots used it too:

It's been a RiffTrax short done by MST3K too.

Henry Coy

Don't forget Boards of Canada's version...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQEmaj9C6ko

But have you seen Wet Illustrated's latest music video? They made Spud Webbs(the guy that was under 6 feet tall for anybody that dont know who he is) amazing 1986 Slam Dunk Competiion win into some weird psychedelic collage.

Here it is

" the most addictive music video I've seen in years, maybe ever..."

I know it's the internet and all, but would someone at WFMU
please turn down the knob on the exaggeration control re-fobulator?

Out of control hyperbole should be reserved for true
works of musical art...not for some meandering cowboy song
with some lame-o remixed ape masks splattered over it.

Dinobyte ...

the original bike short was recently shown on TCM as well.

Fair enough, perhaps I did get a little carried away. That was probably the egregious overstatement I made all day yesterday....maybe ever.

Greg G did you like the Spud Web video its a lot more original?

Bruce

Wow.... this clip is also used by a band called, "Insect Guide" from their 2007 debut CD/DVD "6 Feet In Love". I haven't seen/heard the other artist's who used the clip, but I think it fits in perfect with the Insect Guide's overall feel. Give the band a listen while watching their DVD (which is totally brilliant!!). Their whole package has a very surreal feel to it.

I just gave the other YouTube clips posted here a quick showing and for me personally I think the Insect Guides use of the clip works the best. Maybe it's because I saw that one first.

> Greg G did you like the Spud Web video its a lot more original?

No offense, but that one didn't really do as much for me as it did for you. What can I say....I'm more of a bike riding kind of guy, I guess.

Matt

The clip is also used in a youtube video by foolishslug for Boston Spaceships' Winstons Atomic Bird.

Wolf

Sheesh... Video was OK. Maybe not the penultimate, but quite OK. What I enjoyed was the music. Hadn't known the band before, just watched a couple of their vids on YouTube, and ended up ordering a couple of their CD's a few minutes ago. "Cheesy intro"? "Meandering cowboy song"? Well, this one worked for me. Thanks for the introduction, Greg. - Wolf
