Video of the Day: Jim Henson’s Time Piece


Jim Henson’s Academy Award-nominated experimental short film Time Piece, which we spotted over on The Daily What, has terrified us into getting a flu shot. In it, a man in a hospital bed played by Henson waits for a doctor. Then things get really weird. There’s a strange dinner scene inspired by Tom Jones and a visit to a nightclub. He rides a pogo stick, shoots the Mona Lisa, escapes from prison, and paints an elephant pink. Click through if you’ve got about nine minutes to kill, and a desire to be equally disturbed.
