Adult Swim broadcasts bizarre 3am comedy one-offs from time to time. This one is worth your time, a parody of late 70s/early 80s era of synth greats Vangelis, Wendy Carlos, and Giorgio Moroder. Somebody really knew their obscure references.

With a save-the-world ending that is a little reminiscent of the Revenge of the Nerds (composed by, yes, *that* Thomas Newman).

Anyway, a fun way to take a dive into classic synth history.
