Too Many Cooks

I can’t, in good conscience, recommend anyone watch Too Many Cooks, the 1980s sitcom intro parody. And not just because it’s an 11-minute YouTube video (who has time for that?).

The video has its own brand of weird. I watched it with my wife the other day, and now she’s understandably trying to keep me away from the Internet. But the song and idea of it has been stuck in my head for days now.

Thank you Andy for unleashing it on my corner of the Internet.

Introducing Carrot

Many landing pages for new tech products follow a very standard layout and structure. It’s one that Apple popularized, and that others have copied repeatedly.

Introducing Carrot pokes fun at the trope, showcasing the familiar vegetable in the popular product marketing format of the day. Here’s the pitch:

Carrot is designed with you in mind. It’s a seamless experience, meticulously crafted, from beginning to end. It’s not just a vegetable, it’s what a vegetable should be.

This is some clever work by Dan Angelucci, who says it will “massively disrupt the vegetable sector.” (HT Adactio)
