Too Many Cooks is a hilarious, nightmarish deconstruction of TV itself

When you click play on Too Many Cooks, you'll probably think you're watching the credits from some long-forgotten '80s sitcom. All the tropes are there: an obnoxiously upbeat theme song, a hideous yellow font, and a series of shots introducing the wacky cast.

But then the (NSFW-ish) video continues. Adult Swim's buzzy new video is a hilarious, nightmarish deconstruction of television itself, and anyone with a working knowledge of the medium's tropes will find plenty to recognize inside Too Many Cooks' warped lens. --Scott Meslow
