Director and animator Johnny Wood's OOLYMPACS is a one-minute visual espresso shot of Web 1.0 era animation that conjures up nightmarish comparisons to Teletoon's pioneering 3D animated series Reboot and Graham Young's Nintendo: A Sad Story.

This isn't even my final form.
I think what really does it for me about this video, besides the hilariously out-of-sync audio and grainy flourish of pixelated colors, is the deliberately exaggerated body animations that manage to be just on the cusp of believability before nose-diving into horrific contortionistic nonsense. This rightfully deserves to be buried in the 4 a.m. time-slot on Adult Swim.
