MGMT Music Videos

What doesMGMT have to do with the most ridiculous show on tv? It's simple, short and bizarre videos. Do you like MGMT's ridiculous music videos (always so ridiculous!)? Have you seen The Youth? If not, you should. So I am posting it here.
This little gem is directed by Eric Wareheim of The Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job. If you've never seen the show MGMT's music video is kind of a good indication of the style of the show. There probably is no meaning, they love low production values (possibly so low they're even high?), and the humour is really obscure. It's a sketch show, just little random bits that are sometimes repeated (Steve Brule is the best) and some are just totally arbitrary. Regardless... amazing. Here's a clip. So naturally Eric and MGMT go hand in hand. Sometimes I just don't know how to deal with it. If you have seen or enjoyed one, check out the other, you'll probably like it. Or if you've heard MGMT and check out Tim and Eric you may just be confused. I've seen a lot of it but it still confuses me.


  1. Oh bloody great. So glad you shared this!

  2. I remember watching the video for Kids on the smallest TV screen in a hotel room in Brussels. Strangest three minutes of my life...

  3. MGMT is definitely on path to success. this video just secures the fact that they are making it there on the shoulders of the very niche they silently ridicule.

    for your heath.
