One Got Fat

May 14, 2011

“One Got Fat” is a 1963 safety video that will either make you laugh or keep you up at night, terrified of monkeys, children, and bicycles.  Rifftrax describes it perfectly:

One Got Fat is the real deal – a concentrated dose of lab-purified nightmare fuel. To give away too much would be to blunt the surprise of your upcoming trauma… but here’s a hint: A teeming sea of pre-adolescent ur-monkeys are murdered one by one, all to the whimsical narration of the lubricious Edward Everett Horton! Yay!

Spoiler alert: I can assure you that cyclists do not going “boing” when they’re hit by cars.

    Oh I haven’t seen this one in years. So good. Really worth watching with Rifftrax.

    Creepy. About half those kid-monkeys would have been saved with better infrastructure.

    The monkeys used to ride on a protected bike path but Gorillas for Better Bike Lanes sued to get rid of it.
