Crazy in the Coconut: "Frontier Psychiatrist"

Image credit: 

From the annals of weird internet history, I bring you "Frontier Psychiatrist," a music video by The Avalanches from 2001. The Avalanches use tons of samples to construct catchy, often bizarre songs. "Frontier Psychiatrist" itself reportedly contains samples from 37 spoken word records. This video, directed by Tom Kuntz and Mike Maguire, puts on a crazy mixed-media stage production to go along with the song. I thoroughly agree with one of the top YouTube comments on this video. As "CaptainPotWeed" says:

There is a thin line between sanity and insanity. This? videoclip is that line.

Time to get crazy in the coconut:

Also, if you're wondering where the introductory material about "Dexter" comes from, Merlin Mann explains. (It's from Polyester.)
