PBS Idea Channel host Mike Rugnetta explores whether Adult Swim‘s popular parody “Too Many Cooks” says something about the meaning of life in the show’s latest episode. Specifically, Rugnetta turns to Albert Camus and absurdism to discuss the nature of such things.
Adult Swim’s “Too Many Cooks” is awesome, bizarre, and like so many other things on the internet, ABSURD. The video is perfectly suited for internet obsession, because the internet LOVES it some meaningless and irrational content. So how does this meaningless video connect to Sisyphus, Albert Camus, and Alex from Target?!?!
