John’s friend Sam directed us to the funniest video ever today.
A Case of Spring Fever is apparently a promo film made in 1940 by the Jam Handy Organization. It follows one man’s unlucky encounter with “Coily,” a sinister industrial mascot that is out to prove—in a voice that is both screechy and crotchety—that life would be unlivable without the magic of coiled bits of metal.
The first half of the 8-minute video is like a really annoying, mundane episode of The Twilight Zone, which then seems to drive our hero to Asperger’s syndrome in the second half. I recommend that you watch it twice, because it just gets much funnier the second time around.
