At first, this promotional video for I.B. Diffusion, the makers of the world’s most imaginatively horrifying sweaters from the ’80s, seems like your typical “Yeah, ha, what a weird time that was” mildly amusing thing. But if you keep watching, it just gets weirder and weirder (and more mesmerizing) to the point where you start to wonder if everyone involved in it was on a mixture of crack and angel dust (get it, because those were big drugs in the ’80s!) Seriously, try it, you’ll like it:

I think this might qualify as the first pre-internet fetish video, like those ones about famous women’s feet. I also think Patrick Bateman killed all those people.
