On fan-made video, director of “Obscene Strategies” Jared Sales said:
“I found this box of old VHS tapes while I was trespassing in the abandoned Trilurd robot factory last year. I decided to edit together the best parts of the footage into this video for “Obscene Strategies.”

The Body also designed this amazing Trans Am shirt for Thrill Jockey’s 25th anniversary, which is competing for top position against the Tortoise
and The Sea and Cake shirts.

“we put out Trans Am while you were peeing in your diaper you idiot baby”
