One Got Fat: Bicyle Safety Video, 1963
This is one of the most disturbingly surreal videos I’ve ever seen. Classic mid century “music of the future” plays while a group of kids (in monkey masks) ride their bikes until, one by one, each meets an untimely end. The narration…the visuals…it’s all SO good. This is a must-see for fans of all things strange and unusual.
The names of the characters alone make this worth watching.

(and more…I won’t give them all away)
If you’re interested, it was featured in a Boards of Canada video as well:
