There’s Something Wrong With Adult Swim’s “TOO MANY COOKS”

As fans may know, there are few networks that so often goe down the path of the horrifying in their comedy programming as much as Adult Swim. While the network has always been subversive, playing to an audience that loves the absurd, irreverent and perverse, programming such as TIM AND ERIC’S BEDTIME STORIES, RICK AND MORTY and EAGLEHEART have all shown a deep appreciation for the horror genre in their content. However, Adult Swim’s one-off “infomercial”-turned-viral-sensation TOO MANY COOKS has shown that that appreciation can definitely go to completely unpredictable places.

To say much more would be to spoil the fun of the video, which conceptually riffs on the classic sitcom credits of the ’80s and ’90s. But rest assured, the video is a long con for fright fans, and one that pays off for more observant viewers. So check out the 11+ minute video below for yourself and see if TOO MANY COOKS really does spoil the broth…
