Why it’s beloved: Adult Swim ground down to the core 80s sitcoms and sifted through the dust to rebuild a terrifying effigy to nostalgia. It was disturbing, it was catchy, and it had a cat puppet. Basically, it had everything.
I refuse to love it because: It takes a level of hubris I’m just not okay with to put out an 11 minute video in the Era of Internet™. Are you serious right now, Adult Swim!? I could’ve watched almost TWO DOZEN cat videos in this same amount of time. Yet the response was instantaneous and frighteningly devout. This song was everywhere, and nothing makes me hate something faster than being told by everyone how much I’m going to love it.
