“Disturbing Strokes”

Montypropps, a sound editor in the UK, re-interprets the opening credits of the ’80s sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes,” thereby creeping us the fuck out.

We love the way it deconstructs the show’s racial paternalism, and foregrounds a paranoia of pedophilia that inevitably seems to arise in any trope of miscegenation (cf Michael Jackson).
