Watch: Adult Swim's Next 'Too Many Cooks' Is (the Terrifying) 'Unedited Footage of a Bear'

Adult Swim is a network that prides itself on deliberate weirdness — we still haven’t recovered from “Too Many Cooks,” to be honest — but this new release offers a whole new level of crazy. This YouTube clip of “unedited footage of a bear”* morphs into a commercial for a nasal spray, and from there… Well, let’s just say you might end up missing the sweet comfort of a catchy theme song, by the time the short film’s full horror is unveiled. 

This latest “Infomercial” from Adult Swim is tailor-made for YouTube thanks to its use of annotations. Don’t forget to read the fine print and dig into the related website for “Claridryl” — even while sending to your friends, so that they can experience the bizarre for themselves.  

*No, we don’t know why footage of a bear. That’s just what it is.
