We rarely do this: cover something that’s not “of the moment” – and I’m not sure this week’s feature could be any less of the moment. In fact, at three years old, this video is ancient. It’s also so funny and, upon showing it to a friend earlier this week and realizing we’ve never celebrated it here in the column, I decided that had to change. Had to.
With that, Splitsider presents a work of pure genius from the minds of David Sidorov, JJ Shebesta, and Rachel Wenitsky. This is…True Detective: Yellow King Theory. Whether you’re a fan of the show’s first season or not, the staying power of this absurd piece is sure to capture and amaze. See if you can spot the Yellow King.
