The color of infinity?

Experimental Film is an animated music video directed by Strong Sad and The Cheat, created for the first single off They Might Be Giants' tenth studio album The Spine. It was released at approximately midnight, Atlanta time, on 13 July 2004—the release date of the album. This toon actually aired on MTV, making it the only Homestar Runner cartoon to ever be aired on television, despite TMBG's original intentions to create a seperate music video. (Choice quote: "I feel like if MTV and Homestar collided, the world might explode.") Much of the imagery, and especially the scenes of Strong Sad watching film sprocket holds go by, is likely a reference to one of the first great experimental films, The Man with a Movie Camera by Dziga Vertov.
