Fridge Brilliance

  • There's an episode of Brass Eye which deals with drugs, and features a segment about a program which is intended to scare kids off drugs. One of the things that the kids have to sit through is a session which is purported to give the sensation of what it's like to be on drugs, with a table of drugs lit with a spotlight in an otherwise dark room, "seriously monged" music and weird, creepy camera angles of the style that countless directors and editors have used to give the impression that the camera viewpoint is 'high'. All funny and surreal by itself, but made even funnier by the dawning realization that the camera angles are just an editing trick; from the point of view of the kids, they're just being forced to sit still in a dark room looking at a table covered in powder whilst weird music plays, an utterly boring and pointless exercise from their point of view which brilliantly underscores just how ineffectual and pointless the whole program is. ~ Doctor Nemesis
