Whatever you’re doing, stop now and watch The Was. A 13-minute promotional video for The Avalanches’ new album Wildflower—itself a bit of a pop-culture masterpiece—The Was (TheWas.xyz) is a pop-culture metropolis created by video artist Soda_Jerk, populated by characters from more than 100 movies and TV shows. Over the course of a perfect summer day, Cheech & Chong haunt the same city streets as Beavis & Butt-head, the skateboarders of Lords of Dogtown party with the porn stars of Boogie Nights and the local supermarket explodes in a food fight led by the Fat Boys and Bluto from Animal House. Watch it before copyright lawyers bomb it out of existence.
