This Skrillex x Adult Swim Collab is the Weirdest Thing You'll See Today
The tune "Squad Out!" premiered last year on the Adult Swim Singles compilation, and now director/animator Adam Fuchs brings it to life with a trippy music video.
Fuchs describes his inspiration behind the video:
"There was this really great moment that happened before starting the video," he says. "I woke up from a deep sleep on my couch to a late night talk show on my TV. They were airing a bit that had a fake Skrillex battle rapping with Ben Franklin and I was so exhausted, I didn’t quite know what I was watching. It was one of the weirdest and most confusing things I’ve seen in a long time. I knew at that moment, I had to make something that could be viewed in the same way I saw that skit. I hope I accomplished that."
We would say he accomplished his goal. The video is bizarre and disorienting, and accurately captures the strangeness of having weird late night TV blend with dreams when you are half asleep on the couch.
