Just when I thought my AMV plate was too full, I stumbled upon the forum thread for Project REM Sleep. I glanced through it out of passing curiosity, and I noticed that the track Orange Crush was as of yet unclaimed. I'd been a big fan of the song for years. The track was only about 50 seconds long, and I couldn't resist the idea of using Stink Bomb to the song (if you're not familiar with the song at all, it's widely believed that the title of the song refers to Agent Orange, a biochemical weapon used by the U.S. during the Vietnam War). I always saw Stink Bomb as a black comedy, and Orange Crush seemed to fit it perfectly.
Thanks to the magic of Netflix, the Memories DVD was in my mailbox the morning I got back from a New Year's party, and I made the video later that night. A few technical tweaks came later, but it was basically a one-sitting affair. Nothing mindblowing or flashy, but I think it came out alright.
