I feel like Adult Swim bumps are getting wierder.

Yeah, exactly what it says on the tin. I recently got satellite hooked up after a few years without it and noticed the bumps (Not the white text on black screens, but the actual commercials or whatever, I don’t know the actual word for them) have gotten bizzare and irrelevant, to the point of just being disturbing. Discuss?

What are you…

…talking about?

I haven’t noticed…

…any type of pseudo-subliminal messaging or anything.

Yeah, it’s mostly those DAMN OWLS but the kids in the clown makeup kinda haunt my dreams too. Are those scenes with the kids taken from something, like a movie, or were they filmed for the purpose of making the bumps?

I dunno for sure, but I’d assume they were filmed for Adult Swim. Rather, I hope they were, because man are they disturbing to me.

Cyriak makes some of these? I am just so shocked.

Actually, I am kinda shocked they ever let that man make things to be viewed by the open public

Actually, they’re part of an educational film for kids from the seventies about bullying and how it distorts your (the kids watching) image. Weird stuff, man.

Anyway, I like a lot of AS bumps. Owls and weird kids aside, I think they give the whole network a distinct, no-rush, trippy vibe. And I think they rule. The Boards of Canada ad they recently put out smacks much more of their older, more chill, but still nonsensical bumps.

This bump was played late at night. Old, but still love it.

Only 4 days without sleep so far, 26 more to go.

Ben, you finally made a post that made me proud. I never thought you’d do it you saucy bastard. That was what I was going to post.

Adult Swim has ALWAYS been weird. It’s programming for pot-heads and insomniacs, and it works well.

Dude, that’s trippy. Even worse is the CG characters popping up in the background… ugh. But, I have to agree with you on the second part. I love the overall sarcasm of the bumps, and it’s nice to know that they haven’t really changed.

EDIT: Wow, I just looked at our page for Cyriak and found out that I’ve actually seen one of his videos when it aired on Adult Swim. It was the bottom right one in the video gallery. It aired during the Evangelion movie a few weeks ago.
