Infomercial: For-Profit Online University

From Adult Swim and Williams Street (the people behind Tim and Eric and Dr. Steve Brule) comes this not-a-comedy fake infomercial that is funny and creepy. I thought it would be too long at eleven minutes but I stayed involved through the whole thing. (Apparently Adult Swim does a lot of these eleven-minute “infauxmercials”.) It did come off a bit like an SNL skit, with one big exception, which was welcome: no laugh track.

There’s no plot to summarize, really, but to put it very simply, it’s a fairly believable informercial about what a for-profit online university would probably be like, especially one that was cursed with a student bot that had gained sentience and the threat of control over the whole enterprise. Recommended.
