For whatever reason, this video got us thinking about what life would be like if the internet didn't exist. Maybe it's because of Ariel Pink's perpetual-outsider-even-when-people-care-about-him approach, or maybe it's just because someone, somewhere had to build a cardboard Trojan horse for this video and that probably took a really long time and a lot of effort. If the internet didn't exist, we'd spend all our days listening to Ariel Pink and writing in cursive about his songs, which actually isn't that far off from what we do now. Point is: we still don't know what is going on here.
