If you remember the Fraggles as brightly colored, fun-loving creatures partying underground, I have some unsettling news for you: The Fraggles were fucked up. They were more obsessed with death — theirs, others, yours —than any other creature on the planet, as this mind-boggling two-minute video proves.

Would you like to know what's even more insane? The above video is the short version, and the extended version — which comes with an introduction by the gent who made it and a more thorough listen to the Fraggles' conversations on death, pain and misery — IS 18 COMPLETELY INSANE MINUTES LONG.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. I do know I need a stiff drink, though. Thanks to my pal Chris C. for the tip!
