Following the sensation that was “Too Many Cooks,” Adult Swim is back at it with another one of their so-called “infomercials.”

This installment, titled simply “Unedited Footage of a Bear” is something of a horror-parody of YouTube inanity, video ads and — we’re just throwing ideas out here — the pharmaceutical industry.

If you are not looking to be disturbed, you may want to avoid watching past the two minute mark on this one, as the video morphs…

In the red corner, the Dark Lord of the Sith

In the blue corner, the Dark Knight of Gotham

Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets.

It’s a question as old as action figures: Who would win in a fight between Darth Vader and Batman? Sure, Bats has a utility belt full of high-tech gear, a keen mind that always seems to be three steps ahead of the competition, and a way with a light saber.

It’s a tradition as old as time, or at least Twitter, itself — Jimmy Kimmel subjects celebrities to read through the sludge tweeted about them.

Luckily for Kimmel, we’ll never stop having rude, insensitive things to say about the rich and famous. And luckily for us, having celebrities read those comments will never not be funny.

He even refers to the brush-cleaning process as “beating out the devil” in one moment
