Putting on the Doom
For those who missed it, Invader Zim was a fabulous little show on Nickelodeon that wasn’t canceled due to poor ratings but rather due to the fact that it pulled in an audience older than Nickelodeon’s target demographic. I don’t know why Nickelodeon thought a show created by the writer of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac would be targeted toward young kids, but it seems that TV executives are morons.
Anyway, this fun little video puts some of the early episodes of Invader Zim to the music of Fred Astaire’s “Putting on the Ritz.” I quite like the timing I managed to get with this one, and had a lot of fun with the video in general.
