Just be thankful this one doesn't come with a catchy jingle.

Just when you think it’s finally safe to stay up till 4am watching reruns of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Adult Swim strikes again with another one of their 11-minute journeys through the dystopian land of late-night infomercials. To follow up Too Many Cooks, their trip into the cheesy world of ‘80s sitcom intros, the channel has trotted out Unedited Footage of a Bear.

What begins with peaceful footage of a grizzly in the wild is quickly interrupted by an ad for the latest allergy medication for stuffy-nosed moms. But try as you might to skip the ad for Claridryl, there is no escaping the hell crafted by directors Alan Resnick and Ben O’Brien, members of the Baltimore collective Wham City.

Let your insomnia guide you through this David Fincher-esque suburban thriller, which makes Amy from Gone Girl look well adjusted. Just be thankful this one doesn’t come with a catchy jingle.
