What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculties! How like an angel in apprehension. How like a god! The beauty of the world! The paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust?

Jimmy Merris makes short and strange videos.
It's probably best not to say too much about them.
What we will say is this. You can expect asymmetric humour. Not funny things. But the sense of a wit at work.
There is also pathos (... or should we say bathos?)
Between these two poles then...
Funny sadness. Fucking weird funny sadness.
