The Residents Commercial DVD is nothing short of amazing. 42 songs, each only one minute long (inc. two songs not included on the 1980 Commercial Album US LP release; "And I Was Alone" and "Shut Up Shut Up"). Every song is accompanied by at least one video clip, sometimes two different interpretations, by the Residents and a wide array of independent filmmakers. The effect is almost like a string of television commercials, except in this case you are most often sorry to see each one end. Even if you're a bit weirded out by one, before you know it the song is over and you've moved on to another, which you'll probably like... what I find most amazing is the songs themselves, encompassing a huge variety of melodies, styles and moods, while at the same time being the most accessible music the Residents have ever produced. The one-minute rule not only imposes a strange discipline on the music, but also exercises all the fat from each selection, leaving only the bare essence of the song. The videos are excellently crafted, showing a broad spectrum of visual interpretation, full of wit, humor, and insight. Where there are alternate versions of the same song, the approach taken by the non-Residents creator is always a fresh look, even unexpected (check out Picnic Boy, for instance). The fact that there are so many songs ensures that you will see a dizzying array of imagery, and I find it very addictive as ambient video, as you might play on infinite repeat at a party, or just in the background while you putter around the house. Granted, the Residents are not for everyone, as the words "avant garde" or "bizarre" are often used to describe their aural and visual content. However, if you desire an entrance into the world of the Residents, this is probably it... just don't get lost in the maze.
